Picture Perfect Saturday #19 ~ William Ezra Hughes and Sarah Caywood

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 my paternal 1st cousin 2 times removed, William Ezra Hughes (1854-1952) and Sarah Caywood (1867-1938). This photo was taken on their wedding day on November 30, 1887, in Benton County, Missouri. As you can tell, William is much older than Sarah. He was 33 and she was 19. To me she looks a little scared, and he looks a little too happy. I absolutely love old wedding photos! They went on to have 13 children, 8 sons and 5 daughters.

I am a professional genealogist, writer, photographer, wife, mother, and grandma. I have two books available on Amazon.com: Your Family History: Doing It Right the First Time and Planning Your Genealogy Research Trip. You can also connect with me via Facebook or Twitter.
