99 Years Ago for Fifteen and a Half Months - Beulah and Gust

They were married in 1911 on this day, Tuesday, December 19. They were my paternal grandparents, Beulah Mae Gerner and Gust Doyle.

Their marriage ended 1 year, 3 months, and 14 days later when Beulah died on April 2, 1913, several weeks after giving birth to twins. (Twin Leila died at 3 days of age; twin Lee, my father, survived.)

Beulah's photo was taken near the date of their marriage. Gust's photo was taken about 25 years later. The marriage was so very short. I believe they are together now and hope they are celebrating their anniversary. Happy Anniversary, Gramma and Grampa!

  1. Life can be cruel at times, but despite the tragedy of their short marriage, their inheritance made a mark on the world.

  3. How sad your grandma wasn't alive for your dad and then you to know.

    I'm like you - I think they are together now.
