Wedding 79 Years Ago Today

In my daily ritual of perusing the Internet today, I was put onto newspapers.com as a resource for searching the history of old houses.  So I went out PDQ to get a free trial for 7 days to see what all I could dig up.

Wow!  I have chills!

The first article I pulled up was in Jackson, Mississippi’s Daily Clarion Ledger, dated January 22, 1939, about a wedding that took place in our home on 2:00 p.m. of the same date.. which is TODAY, seventy-nine years ago!

So, posting this at 2:50 p.m. CST on January 22, 2018, means that 79 years ago to the date and time, the wedding was probably just finishing up.

My little 85 year old mother-in-law who lives with us (Louise) would have been almost 7 years old back then and could have made an ideal flower girl!
