On June 28, 1914, my maternal Great Grandparents were married in Columbia, Richland County,SC. They would be celebrating 100 years on Saturday!
I am fortunate to have a picture of William Treadford Roberts (1894-1959) and his bride Beulah Mae Price (1897-1980) on their wedding day.

Family lore says that Beulah's parents, Bertrand Campbell Price (1876-unknown) and Bessie Mae Eargle (1884-1943) did not want her to marry William because she was only 17.
Determined to marry him in spite of their disapproval, Beulah put her wedding dress on under her everyday clothes, distracted her mother by making her baby brother cry, and ran off to meet William.
They were married for almost 45 years before William's death in 1959 and were the parents of 12 children.
Are we kin? If so, please contact me. Together, we can find our people!
Thanks so much for reading!
