Carringers in the News — Rachel Carringer Weds Doyle Moye in 1945 in Tionesta, Pennsylvania

There are a whole lot of Carringer “tales” in my household tree – and this was one in every of them.   Life occurs, by accident and deliberately, and typically a newspaper article tells us one thing concerning the training of the bride and groom.  I’m glad that I can honor Rachel Carringer and Doyle Moye in the present day.
