McMurrain Bible & Wedding & Maps & May with Walt!

A few more pages for the heritage album!  I received the copies for the 1st two pages from members of the Snelling family, in Georgia; they scanned pages from the McMurrain Bible.  The births, marriages, & deaths cover 1822-1892 and beyond; the Bible apparently belonged to John Wesley and Phebe Ann (Motley) McMurrain.  I used 'Cottage Bouquet' from Forget-Me-Nots, by Theresa Lindamood, to scrap these items.

 The next four pages are scrapbook pages featuring our great-great grandparents, John Wesley and Phebe Ann (Motley) McMurrain, and their daughter (our great-grandmother, Narcissa Lorena McMurrain Brown).  I scrapped them using 'Family Treasures' kit from Forget-Me-Nots, by Theresa Lindamood.

 It is so special to have the copies of John & Phebe's marriage records.  I think it is interesting that they got the wedding license in November 1844, but weren't married until May 1845.  I wonder why.

The maps surrounding the photo of Narcissa are from a variety of years; each of them includes Upatoi (sometimes spelled Upatoie), Georgia, where Narcissa was raised.  This page was made with 'Family Gathering' from Forget-Me-Nots, by Theresa Lindamood.
This final page, featuring a photo of May with Walt, also includes two pictures of children playing with dolls and teddy bear.  The lower snapshot is definitely of Kay with her dolls; the upper snapshot might be Walt??  I used the 'Family Treasures' kit for this layout, as well.
As always, your comments and corrections are welcomed!  :)
