52 Ancestors Week 21- Irma Henri

Irma Henri was born on July 6, 1872, in Ch√Ętelineau, Belgium to Adele Dumont and Jean Baptiste Henri. She had at least 1 older sister, Maria Celina Henri.
Irma and Emile Piraux had a daughter, Helene, on November 14, 1897, in Charleroi, Belgium. Irma married Emile Francois Joseph Piraux on August 6, 1898, in Ch√Ętelineau, Belgium, when she was 26 years old. Helene passed away on January 28, 1899.
They had 2 more children while living in Belgium: Marcelin Leopold Joseph Piraux and Josephine Maria Piraux. Then in Dec 1901 they all immigrated to America on the SS Nederland from Antwerp to Philadelphia.
They moved around Washington and Allegheny counties in Pennsylvania for several years, having 5 more children. The youngest, Ector, is only recorded on the naturalization papers for Emile (and family), so we assume he died in infancy.
In 1929 Emile died. Irma died on July 4, 1947, in Smith, Pennsylvania, when she was 74 years old, of a Cerebral Hemorrhage.
