    • From the Summerville News (JBM has photocopy of clipping)

      Mrs. Elizabeth Ann Wood announces the marriage of her daughter, Daisy E., to Mr. Garland W. Thompson on February the eighteenth (18) One thousand nine hundred and twenty two (1922).

      The above announcement will be read with interest by the many friends of Miss Wood here. She, being the youngest daughter of Mrs. Wood of near this place, is a popular and charming young lady of noble character, having attended High School here for a number of years and was one of the graduating class of 1917. Since, she has taught school over this and Bartow County. Mr. Thompson is the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs, Thompson of Gainesville, Ga., and is a young man of high standing and Sterling worth. We wish for Mr. and Mrs. Thompson much success.

  • Notes 
    • Note from Andrea Thompson McCall to her niece, (2010)
      Your grandfather served in uniform for over 30 years. He was drafted just at the end of WWII, then went to Officer's Candidate School and Flight School. He met your grandmother when he was in Officer's Candidate School at Randolph Air Force Base in San Antonio. She left Texas for the first time in her life in the spring of 1947 to travel to Barksdale AFB for his Flight School Graduation, where she pinned his wings to his uniform and he put an engagement ring on her finger. They were married on the 4th of July at the Randolph AFB Chapel, and left on a train the next day for his first duty station in Sacramento, California. He served through the Korean Conflict, the Cold War, and the Vietnam War, flying tens of thousands of hours as Aircraft Commander in the B-52 Stratofortress. He retired with distinction in 1976, and was buried with full military honors in Alabama in 2003.
