I recently ran across an article in the 11-4-1954 Tuckerman (Arkansas) Record about the 60th wedding anniversary of J.T. McGough and Lona V. Bryant, who married in Alpine, Alabama on Sept. 12, 1894, and felt that someone on here might be looking for them. I'm distantly related to the wife of their son Hugh.
