Treasure Chest Thursday

This is a photograph of my maternal grandparents, Leland and Gladys Marling Norris at their 50th wedding anniversary celebration on April 30, 1970. They were married in Elkhart, Indiana in a small family ceremony and they raised 6 children in Dayton, Ohio. My grandfather passed away in March, 1978 and my grandmother followed him in August, 1984. After her death, my mother presented me with a small box that contained the top of their anniversary cake. It has it's own special place in my curio cabinet and it will always be one of my treasures.

  1. How lucky you are to have that treasure. Do you know if an announcement of their anniversary party made it in to the newspaper? It would be worth it to check. I found one for a couple of my ancestors and the article was really detailed and informative, including a guest list.

  2. Yes. I do have the article about the anniversary. I remember the day very well! I also am fortunate enough to their marriage certificate. They are all my "treasures" :)
