Wedding Anniversaries August 1, 2015

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.
