Couples in the Finley and Vinson families who have celebrated many, many years of marriage.

Coming Soon more pictures!!

Of their children and grandchildren whose marriages have survived through the years.

On this page I will be adding pictures of our family members whose marriages have reached those important marker dates from 1year to 65 years and past if needed.

In the long ago times, couples who married might have gone to the Justice of the Peace, meet the preacher at his home, crossed state lines, had the service at the nearest Church or married near a covered wagon. Back then the couples wore their Sunday clothes if they had some or just their everyday things.
