Here is Henry and Gertrude Frecker on the day they were married. She was 20 and he was 31. My great grandparents wedding was in Ohio on September 19, 1893. My wife and I share the same anniversary, September 19, 1981. How cool is that? They had eight children, including my grandfather, William Frecker.
