Charles A. & Amy R. (Harper) Taylor - 1926

Charles A. & Amy R. (Harper) Taylor – 1926

Happy Anniversary to Grandma and Grandpa Taylor!  Eighty-seven years ago today, on January 26, 1926, Amy Ruth Harper and Charles Arthur Taylor were married in Onawa, Iowa.  Both of them were 22 years old at the time.  It was in the midst of the Great Depression, so money was scarce.  No fancy wedding clothes or wedding portrait, just a simple ceremony and a simple celebration.  This seems to be such an Spartan beginning to what would become over 55 years of shared life that exemplified marriage built on love and respect.  Thank you, Grandma and Grandpa.
