Merrill David Johnsen and Jennie’s wedding day, 1946

Today’s GeneaBloggers Tribe daily prompt is: “Wedding Wednesday – display those old wedding photos or scan wedding invitations and announcements, suggested by Carol of Reflections from the Fence.”

I love old wedding photos! Unfortunately, I don’t (yet) have a huge collection of them, though I do have some wedding announcements and anniversary photos which I’ll probably post on other Wednesdays. For this one, though, I’m featuring my 2nd great uncle Merrill Johnsen and his wife Jennie [maiden name currently unknown].

This photo is courtesy my grandmother Elaine Lathrop Adamski’s photo collection, collected and scanned by my father some 10+ years ago. The caption that came with it is as follows: “1946 Uncle Merrill and Jennie Johnsen; Lois [Johnsen] Lathrop [my great-grandmother] and Uncle Walt Johnsen (Merrill and Jennie’s wedding!)”

Merrill, Lois and Walter are just three of a total of ten Johnsen siblings! Coincidentally (perhaps?), they were the three eldest siblings as well.
