1930 Federal Census - Royal Oak, Oakland, Michigan
Charles W Forbury/Horbury 47 b. 1883 in Penn

Kid 4 Mary Jane Forbury/Horbury 3 b. 1927 in Michigan
Kid 5 June Forbury/Horbury 0 b. 1929 in Michigan

Note - Take a look at the 1930 Federal Census - see below
This family is at the very top of the page.
Above the list of family members it says
"Husband not living with family, misinformed"

I did not find Charles and Nellie Horbury in the Michigan Divorce Records.

Nellie (Clark) Horbury died July 23, 1943 in Oakland County
b. 1880 - age at death 62

The kids would have been about 24, 22, 21, 16, 13 at the time of Nellie’s death.

I would contact the genealogy department of the Detroit Public Library,
and ask for a copy of Nellie's obit from the local newspaper.
