52 Ancestors 2018 Edition: Week #3 Longevity of a Marriage --Harold Murrell and Ethel Murrell
If you are not familiar with the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks Blog Prompt Series hosted by fellow blogger Amy Johnson Crow, please take a moment and check out the link here: https://www.amyjohnsoncrow.com/52-ancestors-in-52-weeks/
I am a bit behind on these prompts so I am going to make this post brief.
Week 3 Prompt:
This week is "Longevity." You might write something about the oldest person in your family tree. You could explore the person that took you the longest to find. Maybe it's longevity in a job or career.
I've decided to highlight the longevity of a marriage for this post. My paternal grandparents Harold and Ethel Murrell were married February 18, 1932 in Manhattan. Their marriage lasted for 64 years until they both passed away in 1996.
I've learned from being married myself for just shy of 13 years, that marriage is something that you have to nurture for it to be successful. 64 years is wonderful accomplishment.
