A Marriage Announcement

Back in February 2012, I posted a photo of my 2nd-great-grandparents, Agnes Lydia Allman and Charles John Oyler, showing them as a young couple. Earlier in the week, a distant cousin in Illinois sent me a packet of old photos, along with something special - the actual marriage announcement from 1882. I had it scanned, see below.
This is a cool find, and I'm impressed it was saved for 131 years.


  1. Now that is a cool find! Doing genealogy happy dance for you :)

  2. Last year I shared my 2nd great-grandparents' wedding invitation at From Maine to Kentucky. It's amazing when these things are saved for so many years!
