Treasure Chest Thursday: Marriage of Jacob Pape & Elizabeth Gierse

 On this day, August 18, in 1846, 165 years ago, my paternal great-great-grandparents, Jacob/Jakob Pape and Elizabeth Gierse, were married in Boedefeld, Westphalia, Germany.  There is no date on this image (provided by my cousin Bill) but I'm guessing it was taken sometime in the 1860s.
