55th Edition of the Carnival of Genealogy
This carnival is a “Show & Tell”. I have chosen a picture I found of my mom (Betty Helen Roaten Smith McKinnis) and dad (Marlow Roger Smith) about a month before they got married. This puts the photo taken about May 1960. I was even told this may have been the dress she was married in. The photo was taken in front of my dad’s house in Booneville, Prentiss County, MS. Although they are not presently married, they are still best friends and they frequently double date with their new spouses. I was born in May 1961, so almost a year later from the time this picture was taken I came into the world. Yeah…. This is the only picture from that time that I know of that has them together. I am so happy that I found it.
