Robert M. & Grace Edna Siebman Greene
TheirWedding Day

From the bible of Robert Milam Greene, my maternal grandfather, who is buried at Basin Springs Cemetery, Grayson County, Texas.  This bible was given to me by my cousins, Shirley Greene Neely and Nola Grace Greene Hale at the Greene Family reunion in 1998.  The covers to the Bible were destroyed in a fire at their parent's home, Carl & Thelma Greene, but these pages are still readable.  .  The information in Italics has been added to this document by Susan (Cody) Moody, daughter of Glennis Fay Greene Cody.

The first page reads as follows:  Items underlined were handwritten by Grace Greene.

This is to Certify that
Robert Milam Greene
Grace Edna Siebman
were by me united in
at home of brides parents on the 14
day of May in the year of
our Lord One Thousand 9 Hundred
and 11 in the presence of
Mrs. A.J. Siebman  Signed H.M. Short
J.A.Siebman Gussie Saunders H Henly Cagle

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother and shall cleave unto his wife and they shall be one flesh. Gen 11:24

Second Page ? it is the same handwriting as above, so assume this is still Grace's handwriting.
