This is the first photo that I ever saw of my 2X great grandparents.


This photo was taken on their wedding day. She was 23 and he was 22. According to court records they were married on Jan 4, 1911 at Chanceford AME Church in Pennsylvania.

These photoswere provided to me by my great grandmother (Clara Ringgold)

Below is a copy of their marriage license
