William and Mary Gash (nee Tomlinson)
This is a wonderful picture! William and Mary were married in Kirton In Holland on 22 May 1866. I submitted this photograph for picture dating and the outcome was that it was probably taken as a wedding photograph.
Charlotte Tomlinson (nee Gash) - 1842-1920
Charlotte was my Great Grandfather William Gash's sister.
Jabez Tomlinson was my Great Grandmother Mary Gash's brother.
Two brothers married two sisters.
