Most family trees have complications of some kind…some secrets are eventually discovered.
Ella and Santford were married in 1928. The date marked on the photo indicates that they married after the birth of their first child Betty. The best man and maid of honor are husband and wife Elmer (brother of the bride) and Florence.
Many years later after the death of Elmer, Florence married Alfred, the ex-husband of the above mentioned child Betty. The children from the previous marriages of Alfred and Florence are cousins as well as step-siblings. Alfred and Betty were my grandparents and Florence was my step-grandmother as well as the widow of my grand-uncle.
I never thought of Florence as anything other than my grandmother. It was wonderful growing up with extra grandparents.
