Effie Lee Elizabeth CARR and Eliphas L. RILEY

Submitted by Charmaine Riley Holley

This is a photo of my grt-grandparents . They were married in Van Zandt Co. on 1 Feb 1903. My great grandfather told his children by his second marriage the story as to why
Effie especially does not look too pleased. She was sixteen when they married and several of the local boys decided to play a joke on her. She always had a wicked temper and they decided to hide behind the curtains and make rude remarks. She got madder and madder and you can only imagine what happened after the photo was shot.
