Frank "Harry" Glover and Emma Winkler Married 100 Years Ago

One hundred years ago today my grandfather, Harry Glover, married his first wife, Emma Winkler.  (Frank Jr or Harry likes to mix things up with his name.  His birth record has Harry on it, but most other records list him as Frank H. Glover, Jr.  He went by Harry his whole life.)

Harry is the son of Frank H. Glover and Hattie Fenn Glover.  This marriage is also recorded in Hattie's Bible, which is in my possession.  Emma Winkler is the daughter of John Winkler and Johanna Lindner. 

The 2 October 1911 marriage took place in Marquette, Michigan.  The Rev. W. Roepke officiated.  Witnesses were Herman Schumaker, a friend of the Glover's and Emma Winkler's nephew, and Mrs. W. Roepke.

Unfortunately, Harry and Emma were only married four years.  They had one son, Francis H. Glover on 12 September 1915.  Emma died 27 September 1915.
