This is snapshot of my Uncle, John Monroe Beane, Jr. and my Aunt Mildred Tolley Beane.
John was born 08 Oct 1908 to John Monroe Bean, Sr. [1866-1954] and Ada Burdette [1883-1929]. John was the eldest of the nine children born to this couple. [John Sr. was married three times, having outlived his first two wives, and fathered 15 children total.]
John and Mildred were married 23 Aug 1943 in Monroe County, West Virginia. The above photograph is believed to have been taken shortly after their marriage. The couple had four children: Betty, Johnny, Cathy and Darrell.
John passed away July of 1972 at the age of 63. He is buried at New Zion Union Church Cemetery, Waiteville, Monroe County, West Virginia.
