My maternal grandmother's mother, Georgia (Poage) Meeker was born and raised in Bolivar, Missouri.
She married John Meeker, a Presbyterian minister who worked in mission churches throughout the US territories (like Arizona and New Mexico, before they were states). Eventually they ended up back in the Midwest, primarily in Illinois and Kansas.
This is Georgia on her wedding day -- I'll put up pictures of my grandmother in the same wedding dress later. (My great-aunt Mary also wore it ... and my mother ... and my Aunt Pat ... )
