Billy and Sarah's 75th Wedding Anniversary
The picture on the right is William Henry "Billy" (1846-1944) and his wife Sarah Ellizabeth Bagley Mathis (1849 - 1944), Anna's great great grandparents on her mother's mother side, celebrating their 75th Wedding Anniversary. I suppose Billy is serenading her.
This picture was in the GEORGIA BACKROADS, Spring 2012 issue.
Billy lost one of his legs in a Civil War battle. He died in October 1944, the same month the picture was taken and Sarah died two months later in December.
GEORGIA BACKROADS got this picture from the Vanishing Georgia Project, which Anna's mother Marie contributed.
