Ann Latourette married John Bright Jr in 1850 in Franklin Co, Indiana. She was born in Ohio in March 1826 and died Oct 4, 1911 in Silverwood, Parke Co, Indiana. There is no date on the picture so I am unsure of the time frame.

This is a photo of the wedding between John Charles Kelly and Mary Ann McCarthy. With them is Ann Kelly (it says no relation) and John McCarthy (brother).It was taken either in Abington, Ma or Chicago, Il. They were apparently related to the O'Connolls and O'Connors of the above two places.

Beth Rasmussen I have since learned that Mary Ann and John McCarthy were the children of a Thomas McCarthy of Abington, Ma. Thomas came to America in 1864. I have no wife's name. I am still not sure which couple in the picture were getting married!

Beth Rasmussen I would be interested in who Martha Leach's parents were as I had Leach families in Indiana also. Mine lived in Clark and Floyd counties mostly but another branch was in Noble Co.I have lots of information to share.
