Comments: In the original picture, George and Myrtle look to be the ages they were when they married on 18 January 1906 in Sacramento. However, the painted backdrop to the picture features a coastal scene showing Cliff House, a San Francisco landmark, suggesting that the photo was taken in San Francisco, where George and Myrtle spent their honeymoon.
On 18 January 1906, George Francis Wilson, son of Isaac Newton Wilson and Elizabeth (Manning) Manning, married Mary Myrtle Butler, daughter of John Edward Butler and Electa Louisa DeWolf. They had nine children, seven of whom survived to adulthood. Alive today are two of their children, all 19 grandchildren, all 37 great-grandchildren, 42 (of 43) great-great-grandchildren, and 13 great-great-great-grandchildren (so far).

100 years later, all of these descendants and all cousins—whether full, half, step, or "shirttail" relations—are invited to save the date of the reunion, 24 June 2006 (with additional events on the days before and after).
