Wedding Wednesday : Clover Rowell and John Thornton



This is my great grandparents wedding invitation.  I wish I had a wedding portrait.  My great grandfather had previously been married, but his wife died only a year later.  Clover and John were married in 1893, my grandfather was not born until 1899.  They had two sons, but the youngest Wayne, died at age 10.
