Do you have marriage records for your grandparents or great-grandparents? Write a post about where they were married and when. Any family stories about the wedding day? Post a photo too if you have one.
Here are a couple of excerpts from an interview with Mary Anna Ruth Harvey Shepherd for the Macon Telegraph in the early 1930s:
"My husband was Thomas Hansel Shepherd and he fought in the (Civil) war in the last year. That was before we were married though, he was just a boy!"
"I was married when I was not quite 18 and my husband was just 18 and we farmed, that's about all a boy could do in those days."
Thomas and Mary were married in Laurens County, Georgia on December 21, 1865.
