So this is how my great-great grandparents met… in Iowa… circa 1885.

A SNAPSHOT OF 1885

After the death of their parents, my great great grandmother and her sisters went to live with various relatives. One, Jennie Boal, lived with her grandparents, her mother’s parents, the Fosters. And living close-by was Jerome Darling, with his mother and siblings. Jerome, later known as Dr. J. H. Darling, married Jennie’s sister Nettie in 1890. I can imagine Nettie visiting her grandparents frequently.
