Wedding Anniversaries August 1, 2015

Filed under: Genealogy,Revolutionary War,Wedding Anniversary — Janet @ 3:04 pm

Here is a bit of trivia from my genealogy – a shared wedding anniversary 200 years apart.

John Friend my 4x Great Grandfather and Sarah Lee Wallace were married on February 10, 1763.

Ian and I were married on February 10, 1968.

   John Friend served in the Revolutionary War.  It seems as if each of my male ancestors whose life spanned the Revolutionary War was a participant on the rebels side.  Young and old alike.  What a rebellious lot.

Maybe I’ll find someone who was on the other side, fighting far from home.  I’ll keep digging.

    Fascinating about that rebel blood. And how oddly coincidental about the shared anniversaries. Sometimes I wonder about meaning in apparent coincidence. When I finished reading Golden Age, Fatal Voyage, the author included a follow up of a number of the survivors and it was interesting to note that many of them died end of March/April/early May albeit in different years. I wonder if trauma memories of the sinking of the Titanic around its anniversary had any contributing factor to their deaths?
