I am currently working on my Family Genealogy Group page for Facebook. In doing so, I realized I have a tremendous amount of photos. I decided to feature one a week. No, not everyone is “perfect” however, they are to me!
This week I am showcasing this photo of my 2 times Great Uncle William Fletcher Hughes (1829-1906) and his wife Fidelia Barbara Rank (1832-1917). One of the things that makes this photo extra special is that it was taken on April 25, 1900, for their 50th wedding anniversary. They lived their entire married life in Benton County, Missouri. They had 4 sons and 3 daughters. At the time of this photo, they also had 32 grandchildren. William died 6 years later.
