Thomas Pine Petznick

Notes for James Oliver Morehead/May Lillian Ford


They were married at the home of the minister who performed the nuptials, accompanied by Mabel Williams, cousin of the bride and Homer Newman, distant cousin of the groom.
Mother was married in a black and white checked suit with a white frilly blouse, two ruffled petticoats, and black high-topped shoes. Dad wore a dark tan suit with pin stripes, a white shirt with a stiff starched collar and high-topped shoes.
After the ceremony they, with their attendants, went to a restaurant for a catfish dinner. They then boarded the Wabash train for Greene County, Missouri to make their home.
James O. and May L. Morehead lived to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on March 27, 1957. Mother fried catfish for dinner, and they received telephone calls from their children. Also several gifts from relatives and friends.
They had six children.
