Arthur Sargent wed Winifred Justus
December 5, 1933
Marshall, Clark co. Illinois
he was 25, she was 20
both reside in Linton, Indiana
Now my first question comes to mind....why did this couple go over into another state to get married? Could it have to be age requirement, or something else. I know it couldn't be a pregnant fact, dad (the couples first child) wasn't born until 11 months later the following November. Grandpa was well over the legal age, as for grandma; her father had already passed on at this point, so she didn't have to have his consent.
If anyone can point me in the direction of the marriage custom of the 1930's in Illinois or Indiana do leave your comments . Thanks.

James Hillory Sargent and grandkids

Thanks to my family connection of Kara, who is my father's cousin I have been able to add another photo of my father to my collection.

Daddy (jimmy) is the oldest here, sitting on steps with grandfather. Jeff is standing just above him, with Kara hiding behind, and John next to her. The two in James' lap are Joan and David.
Dad has a younger sister Jody who wasn't in this picture.

The photo was taken late summer of 1944, so dad was about 9 1/2 going on 10 yrs old. Everyone was sitting on the steps of dad's parents , Art and Winnie house in Garden City, MI.

What is special about this photo of my father is , I really never have seen pictures of him at younger ages to know what he looked like. So Kara , keep them coming!
