In the News: Jack Tyson and Rosilene Richardson Wed at Clubhouse


A February 19, 1943 Battle Creek Enquirer article told the story of the marriage of Jack Tyson and Roselene Richardson. The marriage took place at the American Legion Clubhouse. Jack Tyson was in training at Fort Custer, which was near Battle Creek, in Augusta, Michigan.

Miss Roselene Myrn Richardson, daughter of Mrs. Edith Richardson of 224 South Kendall, was married to Pvt. Jack Tyson of Fort Custer, son of Mr. and Mrs. Victor Tyson of 1833 W. Goguac, at 7:30 o'clock on February 9 at the American Legion clubhouse.  The Rev. Charles Oughton read the service. The attendants were the bride's sister and brother-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Keith Bigmall, and Miss Ruth Oughton. A dinner followed the wedding. The serving table was centered with a three-tiered wedding cake with a miniature bride and bridegroom. About 50 guests were present. Private Tyson is in the parachute troops. He is a graduate of Lakeview high school. Mrs. Tyson is employed by Wilcox Rich. She will continue making her home with her mother.

Jack Tyson is my first cousin once removed on my father's Glover side of the family.
