Wedding Wednesday: Green-Routt, 1888

It’s Wedding Wednesday and thanks to Chappel Hill, Texas Historian, Nath Winfield, I now have the marriage license of my paternal Great-Great-Grandparents, Jim Green & Lou “Lula” Routt!

Jim Green and Lou “Lula” Routt were joined in marriage as husband and wife on the 27th day of September in 1888 by Richard Dickerson, Pastor of Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church in Chappel Hill, Washington County, Texas.

So if you have Jim and Lou Green from Chappel Hill, Texas in your family tree, let me hear from you because I’m . . . claiming kin!

    • Hi LaConnie and thanks so much for checking out my Wednesday feature. Actually, a prominent historian in the town where my great-grandparents lived was responsible for helping me get a copy of this license from the county clerk’s office in that town. I share more about this historian and his family’s connection to mine in Thursday’s post. So be sure to check it out!
