The photo to the right shows a family treasure. It was found among my Granny Ewen's papers. It is a marriage certificate dated 21 March 1918. It is titled: "Certificate of Person Performing Marriage Ceremony". It was to be delivered to "Parties Married". It reads:
"I James W Harding a Minister of the Gospel of the Church of Christ do certify that on the 21st day of March 1918, at Winchester Kentucky, under authority of a license issued by H C Skinner Clerk of County Court of Winchester Clark County, State of Kentucky, dated 21st day of March 1918, I united Sidney B Ewen and Stella Morton as Husband and Wife, in the presence of Mabel Harding and Thomas Townsend.
Given under my hand, this 21st day of March, 1918.
James W Harding"
What a family treasure.
