Surprise Weber Photo Shared By Generous Cousins -- Wordless Wednesday Almost

     I’m grateful for my cousins who are generous in their sharing of photos of our Weber family.  At our reunion this summer I was given this beautiful wedding photo that turned out to have an extra bonus. 
     Several of us were sitting around the family history table soaking up photo albums owned by cousins Janet Weber Jenkins and Carole Ditlinger Greer.  Well, one of the photos kept falling out on the table, and then eventually on the ground.  Janet and Carole decided that I should have that photo.    The identification said “Lieland Wedding.”  We all knew the name referred to the wedding of Mary Stella Weber and John Lieland in 1921.  But the individuals weren’t listed on the photo.  So, of course, I gladly saved the photo in my box and returned home to do the research in my files.  Well, a pleasant surprise soon popped up.  I was reminded that my mother, Rosemary Weber, was the lovely little flower girl standing  on the right in the front row.  Lieland Wedding, John Lieland, May Weber, 1921
    The handsome group posing for this wedding that took place in St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Indianapolis, on 6 Sept 1921, are:
    First row: Fern Grace Lieland, May Stella Weber, bride;
   Lillian Weber, sister of bride; Rosemary Weber, niece of bride.
   Back row: Herbert Weber, brother of bride; John Lieland, groom; Clarence Weber, brother of bride; Leonard Paetz, cousin of bride
