Wedding Wednesday - Buford & Chinn

One of the multiple crossovers between the Buford family and the Chinn family, is this wedding between LeGrand Griffin Buford and Orra Ella Chinn. Orra was the daughter of  Joseph Garland Chinn and Nannie Shelby. Ella was my first cousin 3 times removed. Her father and my great-great grandmother were brother and sister. "Griffin" Buford was the son of LeGrand Griffin Buford and Eusebia Mallory.

Griffin and Orra were married February 14, 1871. Sadly, Orra died December 18, 1875, probably as a result of childbirth, as her only daughter Florence was born in December of 1875.
