Weddings Pioneers and their Descendants.

Weddings Pioneers and their Descendants.

 The Area covered for these Wedding Photos, was Tambourine (Tamborine) to Jimboomba, to Waterford.  These towns form a triangle which encompasses, Logan Reserve, Stockleigh, Chambers Flat, Buccan and of course Logan Village.  Over the years we have been able to accumulate many photos.  

The main information about the wedding is listed under the Husband, with a small notation made in the Wife's family name.

There are many descendants not living within the area, but they are still considered to be applicable to the History of the area. 

We at the Museum are always looking for more photos.  The Earliest is of a Markwell wedding in 1869.
