Two sisters married two brothers, and combined they celebrated 139 years of marriage.
Couple number one…my great aunt Bessie and great uncle Marshall Wilkerson. The were married on February 3rd of 1929 and were together 70 years! Couple number two…my paternal grandparents, Evelyn & Raymond Wilkerson. They were married for 69 years! By the way, my Father is standing between them. They were married on November 15th in 1930. They all met at Second Baptist Church in Fort Madison, Iowa. I’m very blessed to have known them for they were true gifts to our family.
