Happy 105th Wedding Anniversary!🥂


On September 25, 1913, at St. James Episcopal Church in Birmingham, Oakland County, Michigan, Irene Mae Jenks married Joseph George Jones.  Irene was born to Oliver Torrey Jenks and Evelyn Roselia Seymour on 3 June 1893.  Joseph was born to Major George Jones and Ellen Augusta Schuyler on 6 August 1883.

Irene was one of my grandfather’s closest cousins and the two corresponded and conspired often.  The cousins were less than three weeks apart in age, although they were one generation apart – they were first cousins, once removed, Great grandmother Weaver, Effie Clarissa Lee, was Irene’s first cousin.

Irene and Joseph were married 53 years until Joseph’s death in 1966.  Irene lived until 1977.

About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
