Cherry-Gardner Wedding Photo

This is an old tin type, believed to be the wedding picture of my great-grandparents, Wallace Roy Cherry born in Stewart County, TN in 1862, and Lucille Overton Gardner born in Trigg Co. KY in 1869.  They married in Stewart Co. TN June 25, 1888.  Wallace's parents were George Y. Cherry and Amanda Bagwell.  Lucy's parents were John Dabney Gardner and Julia Polk Lander.  Their daughter Juliet Amanda Cherry was born in Bumfus Mills, TN  (my grandmother).  Their son Hugh L. Cherry was born in Big Rock TN, where Wallace was an early principle of the school there.  Lucille died very young, when my grandmother was about 8 years old. Submitted by R. Kirchoff
