I love this photo of my grandfather’s family. He’s the one on the far right in the back row.
In May 1909, 21 year old John and 18 year old Laura were wed. For 38 years they lived, laughed, and loved.
Have you ever run across a hint from an online database and immediately discounted it? “My ancestor was never THERE!” you cry. And then you realize that all the names — unusual names even — match. You look at the record, and see that names, dates, places, all match. Huh??
