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.
