Wedding: Brumfield & Pittman, 10 Feb. 1934, MS

This couple began their married life with excitement at the Mardi Gras in New Orleans. My husband & I have visited that wonderful city, but never at Mardi Gras. It must have been a fun tale to tell for the almost 60 years they were married.

Of interest to Pike countians and others in Southwest Mississippi is the wedding last Saturday of Miss Norine Brumfield to Mr. Harry E. Pittman.
