Post subject:  Oliver Burry Born in 1901

Looking for information on an Oliver Burry who was the son of Johanna Porter Burry, who actually spelled her name “Johannah” in 1868, in Long Pond, Bonavista Bay, Newfoundland, Canada (Daughter of Samuel Porter and Grace Porter).
Listed as a “housewife” throughout her life living and working off the coast of Greenspond, Bonavista Bay, Newfoundland.
Johanna was married to Zacchaeus Burry and together had seven children living on Newell’s Island until the Canadian Resettlement Act brought them across Bonavista Bay to Greenspond where they resided for the remainder of their life with their final resting placing being Greenspond United Church Cemetery.
Life was not easy as Zacchaeus was nearly blind by the time he was 55-years old according to a letter written by his wife Johanna in 1918.

Edward Burry Born 1895.
Matilda Burry Born 1896.
Annie Burry Born 1897.
Oliver Burry Born 1901.
Samuel Burry Born 1903
Harold Burry Born 1907.
Clara Burry Born 1910.

Other than his service with The Royal Newfoundland Regiment I have found no other information, not even his final resting place. I would appreciate any direction if possible.

Thank you!
