A photo of the backyard wedding of Penny Marshall and Rob Reiner in 1971. The daughter of Marjorie Marshall, a tap dance teacher, and Tony Marshall, a film director and producer, and the sister of Garry Marshall (her sister was a casting director and producer), it's not surprising that Penny entered the entertainment industry as well. She was a actress (probably best known for the series "Laverne and Shirley), director, and producer. She brought us years of laughter in her productions. She married Rob Reiner in 1971 (himself a well known entertainer and the son of Carl Reiner) and they were married for a decade. A previous marriage resulted in a daughter, Tracy (who is also an actor), and Rob adopted her. Penny died of complications from diabetes on December 18, 2018 in Los Angeles CA - a continent away from her birthplace, The Bronx, New York City.

I’ve “rescued” an old photograph of Ferdinand SCHMIDT and his bride along with two unnamed witnesses which was taken at the Hingtgen Studio in Wahpeton, ND. The photograph appears to have been taken in the early 1900’s with Ferdinand and his bride appearing to be in their 30’s or 40’s at the time. Ferdinand is also identified as the brother of John S. SCHMIDT. I’m hoping to locate someone from this SCHMIDT Family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley
