This is the marriage record of how my grandfather Alfred (Fred) Regis Thayer/Theyere married my grandmother Florence Brede under his Army Air Corps alias of James Regis Long, and then later noted the correction.
My grandfather served 2 stints in the Army Air Corps, changing his name and birthday on the 2nd stint so he could remain in the military that he so loved. He was an army cook in the European Theater and received his training in St Louis, Jefferson Barracks.
A photo of Priscilla Allen Scroggins and family. The lady to the right is Priscilla Allen Scroggins. The oldest Methodist in the world. She was born on March 9, 1777 in South Carolina to William Allen. His photo was taken in 1893 when she was 116 years old. The newspaper article attests to this fact. Effectively making her (at the time) the oldest Methodist in the world! Born before the methodist church was officially established. She has been a Methodist since age 14 in 1791.
Her father William Allen died in Ga at age 112. He was born in 1726 and died in 1838.
