I have an original wedding photograph affixed to a card indicating the “50th Anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Franklin Pierce Atkins – 1880-1930”, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. The wedding photo shows each of them looks to be in their 20s.
I found a Frank Atkins, with a birthdate of Jul 1861, in the 1900 census for Havana (Mason Co.) IL, showing he and wife Sarah J. had been married 13 years = 1997, so this is not likely the same couple as in the photo….except that a “Franklin P. Atkins”, and his wife Ssarah J. lived in 1910 and 1920 in Peoria (Peoria Co.) IL. Children were Clyde and Otho.
