Happy 129th Anniversary, Aunt Myra and Uncle Robert!

On 26 March 1891 in Pontiac, Oakland County, Michigan, Hannah Almira [Myra] Lee, daughter of Charles Norton and Esther Jenks Lee, married Robert Richard Churches, son of Thomas and Harriet Roper Churches.  Robert and Myra were the parents of seven children: Hazel (1897), Baby Boy (1900-1900), Roy Thomas (1901), Raymond Charles (1901), Baby Girl (1902-1902), Ivan Lee (1905), and Esther Harriet (1907).

In 1941, on the occasion of their 50th Wedding Anniversary, they recreated the event:


Front Row: Hannah Almira [Myra] Lee and Robert Richard Churches.  Middle Row: Effie Clarissa Lee Weaver [my great grandmother] *, Ora Lee Churches *, Marietta [Ettie] Lee Wright *, Anna Churches (“Vocalist who sang “Put on Your Old Gay Bonnet”).  Back Row: George Churches (husband of Ora Lee Churches), Stephen A. D. Wright (Husband of Marietta Lee Wright), Bill Jenks (in the roll of the Minister).

* Sisters of Hannah Almira Lee Churches, my great grandaunt.

Uncle Robert passed away on 5 May 1952.  Aunt Myra followed on 8 June 1954.  Both are laid to rest in the Southfield Cemetery, Southfield, Oakland County, Michigan.

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.
