    My parents were married, July 21, 1920. They did not go by Horse and Buggy , My father (Charles) drove his father's (James) brand new car (PAIGE) to St. Paul, MN. They were married at the St. Paul Court House. My mother ( Vera) told me she wore a cute Pink and White dress. My father wore a suit. She said there were no pictures taken. The Hughes family gave them a wedding party, all the neighbors were invited. After the hay was cut ! They told their parents they wanted to get married. Grandpa Hughes said that was fine, just get back to cut the HAY, we'll celebrate after the hay is cut ! Some time after they were married, they moved to Hudson and rented a house. My father told his father he did not want to do farming in his married life.
    My mother gave me this picture and said, "THIS IS WHERE YOUR FATHER AND I WERE MARRIED" .

    7. [S109] Marriage License, Ramsey County Public Health; Vital Records Division, St Paul, Minnesota. Letter dated 6 Mar 2018. Re: Marriage License Record for Walter Hughes and Vera Vance. Date of Marriage: 21 Jul, 1920. (Reliability: 3), 12 Nov 2018.
      The marriage license application index for Ramsey County Minnesota, which covers the period from September 1919 to December 1921, lists Walter Hughes and Vera Vance as applying for a marriage license.

      Regrettably, during the microfilming that took place in the early 1980's, the marriage records for the period 1920 to 1922 were accidentally destroyed.

      We are not able to provide a marriage record for this couple.
      Books 102, Page 510 thru 106, Page 599. 1920 - 1922 were destroyed during the microfilming process. We have no record.

      Index: Vance, Vera; Hughes, Walter 103/81
