The Marriage of Robert Nolan Shane and Susan Clara Samels

My paternal grandparents, Susan Clara Samels and Robert Nolan Shane were married February 17, 1892 in Sand Springs, Iowa. Robert was 29 and Susie 24 when they married. I was able to get some basic information from the Delaware County Marriage Records and was fortunate to have their original marriage license and wedding picture.
