In November 2011, I purchased a scrapbook at an antiques mall in Carson, California. The scrapbook is believed to have belonged to Laurine Wyatt. I am transcribing the articles and documents contained in the scrapbook with the hope that it may be of value to genealogists who may be researching the individuals named.
“Lawrenceburg, Tenn., June 1 (Spl.)--Mrs. James Alvin Brown was Miss Nadine Marjorie Bottoms, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. B. Bottoms of Lawrenceburg, before her marriage in Franklin, Tenn., on May 19. Mrs. Brown is a member of the Girl's Cotillion, and the Girl's A. B. C. Club.”
I found the following marriage record for Alvin Brown and Nadine Battams in Williamson County, Tennessee, on May 19, 1940:
- Nadine Bottoms was born about 1919 and is enumerated with her parents and siblings on the 1920 and 1930 U.S. federal censuses, in Lincoln County, Tennessee, and Lawrence County, Tennessee, respectively.
- This announcement was on the back of a loose newspaper clipping in the scrapbook. Therefore, I do not believe this person was affiliated in any way with Laurine Wyatt.
- I have no information regarding the date of publication of this announcement or the name of the newspaper in which it appeared.
