The above is a picture of my grandparents, John A. Martin & Rachel Kinney Martin, who were married April 4, 1872 in Petersburg, Menard Co., IL. I believe this may be their wedding picture. John was a Civil War veteran and was 39 or 40 years of age when he married. His wife, Rachel, was 16 at the time of their marriage. She died in 1884 while giving birth to her 6th child.
