(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 261: Marcia, Emily, Bess and Dorothy At My Parents Wedding

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they aren't Wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is a photograph from the Seaver/Richmond family photograph collection passed to me by my cousin Laura in 2008:

The persons in this photograph are (from the left):

*  Marcia Chamberlain, daughter of Marshall and Dorothy (Taylor) Chamberlain
*  Emily (Richmond) Taylor, wife of George Taylor and mother of Dorothy (Taylor) Chamberlain
*  Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver, sister of Emily (Richmond) Taylor
*  Dorothy (Taylor) Chamberlain, daughter of Emily, wife of Marshall Chamberlain, and mother of Marcia.

I believe that this picture was taken on 12 July 1942 in San Diego on the occasion of the wedding of Frederick Walton Seaver and Betty Virginia Carringer (my parents).  Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver is the mother of my father, and was in San Diego for the wedding.  I think that Marcia was a bridesmaid in the wedding.

I don't know the setting for this picture - it may be at the All Saints Episcopal Church in San Diego.

My thanks to cousin Laura for sending this picture, and many others, to me, and for permitting me to display them.
