Marriage Announcement

A smile and uniform gets the girl every time!

Troy and Barsie lived in Alabama City for a while after the war, I remember going to their house as a 6 or 7 yr. old for Christmas, they had bought gifts for all of us kids. I remember that I was jealous of my brother Jack, he got a knife an I got a rubber gun. Apparently brother Jack also felt loved by Aunt Barsie. As a teenager, he ran away from home an lived with Aunt Barsie and Uncle Troy in LaGrange, Georgia for awhile.
