|Bob Lefler, who submitted these photos, calls this a Classic Wedding
Picture. The newly married couple is photographed leaving the house where
they were married to go and make their own home together. In 1909,
at the time of this photo, the farm belonged to Ella ROCKWELL and Mark
James LEFLER. It is jut north of the Jackson / Rutland boundary on Route
549. Its silos show in the opening photo of the Jackson Township page.
In 1914 the farm was sold to the Max Garrison family.
Verne taught Biology and Science for about forty years at Troy High
School. Bob says "Everyone remembers him! He whistled all the bird songs.
He could spot all the 4 leaf clovers in an instant"

|Bob and his family visited me a few years back on our shared birthday.
I scanned all the family photos he brought with my old four inch hand hald
scanner (It was all we had at the time). Unfortunately (or Fortunately)
Bob accidentally left many of the photos behind which gives me an opportunity
to do a better job of scanning some of them with the much better scanning
equipment and software I have now. I have seen him twice since but have
not had the chance to return the photos. In any case, now he can go online
to look at his family photos. More will be coming.
