Throwback Thursdays #tbt #wedding – Marie (Colbert) O’Donnell, my grand-aunt

Here is another wedding photo from my files.  This photo dates from 1931, when my paternal grandmother’s older sister Hanora Marie Colbert married Philip O’Donnell in San Francisco, California.

I have not requested a copy of Aunt Marie’s marriage certificate, but I have found, on familysearch.org, the index to Brides married in San Francisco County in 1931.  She and  Philip A. O’Donnell tied the knot on 29 August 1931 [1].
