The picture of the marriage certificate has an interesting story.
I recieved an email from 'Kathy' who had found my findagrave.com memorial for Ogden Christy. During the 1960's, Kathy's grandmother had purchased a pictureframe at a yard sale in Texas. When she opened the frame to remove the picture there was this marriage certificate in the back of it for Ogden Christy and Martha Bacon from Philadelphia dated 1877. Kathy's family kept the document for over 50 years hoping to return it to the family it belonged to. She found me. She FedEx'd the FRAGILE document to me. Do you believe in miracles? I do...
Thank you Kathy.
