Valentine ~ Week 7

This week’s prompt:
Is there a love story in your family tree? Maybe a couple was married on Valentine’s Day or you have a valentine that one ancestor gave to another. Maybe you have an ancestor named Valentine.

I find no one married on Valentines Day and no one named Valentine. The best love story is that of Frankie Davis and Watson Merrill.


They lived together for 37 years and had 12 children.


Frankie died in May of 1918. The family always said that Grandpa died of a broken heart in August of that same year.
