Valentine Weddings

Valentine Day Weddings

14 February 1942 in Mississippi
Sylvia Rayleen Brown & Jessie Miles Hall

Sylvia was my half aunt; my father’s half-sister. She was something of a family secret who I did not learn about until I was an adult. She was a wonderful, warm person and I’m glad we had opportunities to connect, both in Mississippi and here in New York.

14 February 1953 in Ohio
William Thomas Zengler & Kathryn Isabel Waidman

Jessie was my 2nd cousin, 22x removed. We are related through John Franklin & Elizabeth (Burkholder) Wolf.

Very Romantic. Was Roy Jesse Brown twice married?

Colleen G. Brown Pasquale said...

Yes. There was just Rayleen from the first marriage. Later, Roy moved to Ohio where he met & married my grandmother. They had seven children.
