Picture Memories - Part II
I present my great grandparents, Oscar and Elizabeth (Groden) Melcher. Both first generation Americans born to immigrant parents from Germany and Ireland. I'd like to step back in time to visit with them. She passed away when I was only two; I have a very vague recollection of visiting her in Salt Lake City, Utah ... I remember a beautiful decorative floral tin with a little knob on top that she let me play with ... my mother said this grandmother enjoyed watching boxing fights on TV (LOL).
They were married on March 21, 1903 in Madison, Nebraska ... residing the early years of their marriage in Osmond, Nebraska.
