Fearless Females Series - A Wedding

Thanks so much to Lisa of The Accidental Genealogist blog for posting a series of blog prompts titled Fearless Females for the month of March, Women's History Month.

March 4th - Do you have marriage records for your grandparents or great-grandparents? Write a post about where they were married and when. Post a photo too if you have one.

Bertie (aka Birdie, Birdy) Horsman was born in August of 1883 in Virginia. She was the daughter of John Thomas (JT) Horsman and Emma Katherine Dawson.

Bertie married Silas Bernard Kidwell on May 21, 1902 in Falls Church, VA.   The couple had 13 children.

While I am not certain that this is a wedding photo, I have no others of this couple together and it certainly appears that they are dressed for an occasion.


  1. As always, this is a beautiful post.

  2. Very nice post and great picture.

  3. Terrific photos and wonderful post. 13 children? Amazing - thanks for sharing.
