Happy Anniversary Bernard & Jean Koops

69 years ago today, on 5 January 1943, my grandparents were married in Yuma, Arizona. They didn't have a traditional wedding though, they eloped. They were pretty young, he was 19 and she was 18. I don't know if that was the only reason for the secret marriage, but I did hear that Bernard's dad had threatened him if he was going to marry.
