My maternal Grandparents-Edna Chloe Cornell and James Jacob Hammond were married 83 years ago today.
Most of the guests were relatives and friends of my Grandmother who grew up and lived in the area of Spencer, New York. (See blog post- Celebrating the Life of Edna Chloe Cornell). My Grandfather was born and raised in Iowa. (see blog post- Celebrating the Life of James Jacob Hammond). I find it interesting that in 1928 my grandfather’s sister –Mrs. Frank Shove (Margaret Hammond Shove) came all the way from Cherokee, Iowa to attend her brother’s wedding. (see blog post- Tombstone Tuesday-Margaret (Hamman) Hammond Shove)
I wish I had a picture of my grandparents together. Maybe one day I will find a picture.
