Wedding Wednesday - Jim Robbins and Josie Hughes

My paternal grandparents, James Robert Robbins and Josie Lee Hughes were married on the 21st day of August 1907 in Llano, Texas.  This picture was taken on that day;  I had it framed for preservation and hung it with some other favorite family photographs.

He was three days away from being 31 and she was a little over 18 years old.  Until today I hadn't realized their age difference.  They had been married almost 45 years when she died in 1952.  I have been told he wore a little picture of her pinned on his shirt above his heart for quite some time after her death.
