Well No Wonder I Couldn't Find It !

I can remember clearly my grandmother telling me (on more than one occasion) that her wedding anniversary was the same day as her parents - November 4th.


When I requested a marriage certificate from the State of Kansas for my grandparents, I was told "Sorry but it didn't happen in this state on that date."


Well today look what I found hiding between the pages of an old bible that no one in the family claimed as belonging to them:



Back dating their marriage to August puts my mother's birth at just about the nine month mark. Good thing someone had an "In" with the press. It's easier to swallow a "Secret Marriage" story than having to explain a 9 pound baby who was 3 months premature!
