On This Day: August 28

1935: Jasper Jackson Spurlock and Mattie Lee McBride, my father and his first wife, were married probably in Houston, Harris County, Texas. Mattie Lee died in 1952, and my dad married my mother soon after. He remained close to the McBride family, and we visited them whenever we went to Texas. Here is a picture of Daddy, Mattie Lee, and their daughter (my sister) Jane, probably taken about 1940 in Houston:
