My Maternal Grandparents

Here are pictures of my maternal grandparents taken on their wedding day in 1908 and then 50 years later in 1958 for their 50th wedding anniversary. My grandmother's name was Mollie Ora Magee Wells and my grandfather's name was James Daniel Wells.
I have wonderful memories of the time I spent with them in the summer in their home in Robstown, Texas. My grandfather and I spent many hours playing checkers and dominos. He also let me come to court with him one time. He was the city judge and I sat behind the judge's bench with him while he presided over the court.
