Ellis Album, Photo 27 – Ronald & Margaret


PETERSON, Ronald Skeen & Mary Margaret Ellis, 27 June 1949

Mary Margaret Ellis & Ronald Skeen Peterson, they were married 27 June 1949 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

These are my grandparents.  They were married 27 June 1949 in Salt Lake City, Utah after a very long courtship that spanned several months in high school, Grandpa’s 2 years of service in the Marine Corps during WWII, a few months afterward, and then Grandpa’s 2 1/2 year LDS mission to New Zealand.  Grandma also served a mission in California while Grandpa was serving his mission.

Several years ago I received a 5×7 of this photo from Grandpa’s Uncle Evan.  It is in excellent condition.  It is framed and sitting on my piano.  This copy, from Grandma’s mother’s photo album, is also in excellent condition.



This photo comes from the fifteenth page of the album.  Here are pages fourteen and fifteen to give context for this photo:

  3. Beautiful! You wouldn’t happen to know what the dress looked like from behind. I’m wondering if those flounces on the sides went all the way around the back.
