Wedding Wednesday


John Truman Williams and Bessie Hicks Williams

Today I spent two hours with Margaret Williams Edmonson. She brought out her father's bible. Bessie, her mother (great granddaddy's sister) had filled up the pages on marriages, births and deaths. 

I am going to write up a bigger entry on the blog about Bessie and her family. But, until then here is a little snippet of information. 

Mr. Truman Williams of Dalton Ga and Bessie Reid of Dalton Ga 
on October 5 1925 at Court House. 

Bessie had been married to a Mr. Reid, who had died. 
Mr. Williams was her 2nd husband. 

Stay tuned. Hopefully I will get the bigger story up here in a week or two.

Friday's Faces from the Past

Friday's Faces from the Past 
is a way to highlight photos, of known ancestors or complete unknowns. 

I've been terrible and lazy lately when it comes to working on my genealogy! That happens to me almost every summer. I work outside in the garden in the summer, and get back to my genealogy in the winter. 

Well, I am working on a new genealogy project, (even though it is summer) and I hope to post it for you here soon. In the mean time here is an unlabeled photo. Do you know who these people are?

Please message me if you do!  
or by facebook if you are my "friend". 

EDIT: Brenda, Byron and Barbara all believe that this is their Aunt Doris from England. She may not be a "Hicks" but she is family nonetheless! Sister* (I'm guessing) to their mother Florence Holland Hicks.
