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.
“MRS. W. L. SPANGENBERG'S marriage is announced today by her father, J.C. Brandon. The ceremony took place May 30, in Franklin, Ky. The bride, who was formerly Miss Nancy Lee Brandon, attended Abilene Christian College in Abilene, Texas, and David Lipscomb College. Mr. and Mrs. Spangenberg will make their home in Louisville where the bridegroom is an engineer and draftsman in the employ of the United States Government.”
- The date of this announcement and the newspaper in which it was published are unknown.
- No marriage record was located in searches on Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.
- However, a death certificate was found for a stillborn child born to this couple on 29 February 1936. [Source: Kentucky Bureau of Vital Statistics, death certificate, child of Wm. L. Spangenberg (1936); Ancestry.com, Kentucky Death Records, 1852-1953, online database and images (www.ancestry.com : accessed 25 November 2011.]
- The relationship between Laurine Wyatt and this couple is unknown.
