Frank Mitchell Wilson and his bride Ruby Dobbins were married in Richton, MS on Sunday, October 17, 1920. They had been married 60 years when he died of emphysema in 1981.

Frank’s parents were newspaperman William Ransom Wilson (b. July 23, 1867, d. March 12, 1912) and Leona A. Mitchell Wilson (b. May 1, 1867, d. 1930). He was their 7th child (of 8). Frank grew up with four brothers: older brothers L.A. and Roy, and younger brother Willie. Four other siblings died before the age of 3: Hattie, Pierce, Claudie and Earl.

What do you remember about Frank & Ruby? I’d love to know.
