George and Julia - Our History Layout

I'm back! with another layout for you all to take a look at. It's another heritage layout this one is of my paternal great-great-grandparents. They are my paternal grandfather's maternal grandparents. I had a copy of these photos in my regular photo albums for couple of years now. I decided to finally do a layout with the pictures. These are the only known pictures of George, and Julia, that I have. I don't think they took a picture together as a couple before George's death in April 1891. The picture of George had to be taken between 1873 or 1876, but not sure on the date. The older picture of Julia, was taken around 1926 she was about 55 years old in the picture. George, and Julia, married ca 1889 or 1890. After they birth of their daughter, Nellie, they probably went to live in Forte Wayne, Ind. Where George's, died three months later he was only 27 and left a young widow and infant daughter behind. Julia, would marry for the second time in 1894 and have three more children with her second husband. I wanted to do this layout in honor of my great-grandmother and for George, so others in the family can see his picture even if it is a young childhood picture of him.
