Photos of George (Bud) McGinnis and his wife Etta (Jordan) McGinnis.

The photos are blow-ups of locket size pictures there were said to have been taken when they were wed on June 13, 1901.

It was an era when one was not supposed to smile for the camera but you can plainly see that Etta
could barely suppress a smile, while Bud did his level best to look stern.

The bride was barely age 15 and the groom ten years older.
The young couple bought a farm and raised tobacco and a large family on Brushy Creek near Carter City.

Bud died Dec 30, 1942 and Etta Jan. 13, 1948.
