Luther Parker and Rosa Rogers -- Wedding Day Picture

I think this is Luther Parker and Rosa Rogers on their wedding day. I am bothered by Rosa's looking white. Her father was a red-haired Scot, but her mother was a lot Cherokee and Choctaw, and spoke Choctaw (as her father--Rosa's father--did), and later in life Rosa was very dark, and her children were dark. Her Glenn uncles and cousins were very dark, too. One of her younger daughters was known in the family as "Blanket"--I learned late in life that this was because she came out so dark that they thought of wrapping her in a blanket and dropping her off at the Reservation. Okie humor.
