Juanita Brady State of Florida marriage and divorce records

My grandmother Juanita Brady was married at age 15 to a man named Ollin Rowell. They divorced a few years later and she married my Grandfather Roger Tanner. Below are the documents I received today from the state of Florida.


Willow Oak Cemetery

I visited Willow Oak Cemetery this week to see the graves of my Great Grandparents Missouri Bryan (Bryant) John Brady and James Phillips. No one was around when I visited.

                                 The three grave sites. Phillips is to the right, Missouri in the middle.

                                                                       Their son Frank

                                                                            Ila Mae

                                                              Frank and Ila Mae

                                            James Died 10 years later, so his stone is separate.

                                                                  Walter and Missouri
