I want to say a big “THANK YOU” to my new followers and blog subscribers!  Your readership and comments mean a great deal to me!

As you can see, not all of my new subscribers have genealogy blogs – some photography blogs as well as a blog from a future Air Force wife.  No matter what your interest, please go visit one or all of them and take a gander at their photos and writings.

John Lafayette Johnson and Katie J. Blazer

My maternal great-grandparents (on my grandfather’s side), John Lafayette Johnson and Katie J. Blazer, were married on July 4, 1883, in Anderson, Madison County, Indiana.  He was a few months over 22 years old and she was close to 19. Since both were “of age” according to the laws of the time, neither needed a parental signature.

The couple was just shy of celebrating their 47th wedding anniversary when Katie died on May 20, 1930 (trivia: my wedding anniversary is on the anniversary of her death – May 20!).

Below is a picture of the couple in older age.
