On June 2, 1911, one of this upstanding pair wrote to Michael McGrath announcing an imminent visit.

"Mr. Sterry & myself will be in Kingston nex week," 1911

In the 1910 federal census, Michael McGrath is listed as a 57 year old foreman and farmer who owned a home and land on Elm Street.  He appeared in an earlier post posing with a team of oxen while working on the Bailey Playground in 1926. The census is no help in identifying Mr. Sterry, and without a last name, John could be anybody.
