Mamerto Arcala and Lenore Barron Marriage Application
My grandparents lied on their marriage application. My grandfather was 32 years old when he married my grandmother who was 17 years old on her wedding day. The application lists their ages as 28 and 21. The things people do for love.
They crossed Michigan state lines and married July 10, 1940 in Napoleon, Ohio, USA.
Mamerto Arcala's true birthday was May 10, 1908 and Lenore Barron's true birthday was January 9, 1923.
