Here is a beautiful photo collection from Delina (known as Pixel Packing Mama on Flickr) that shows the wedding of her and John Joseph Carroll, a U. S. Marine, and he was at this time (1969) a Patrolman for the Oakland Police Department in Oakland, California, January 25, 1969.

“I was married 50 years ago. John and I had a beautiful wedding and 2 wonderful children, but the marriage did not last but 7 years. Then John died in 1992, but I was not a widow, because we were already divorced. He never got to meet Anna Leigh, but he would be one of her two grandfathers. My mother would be Anna Leigh’s great grandmother.”
