    Meagan, can you give us your great-grandmother’s name? I’d love to look her up to see if we’re related!

  2. Lya says:

    How awkward ! All these people claiming to look like the great-grandmother, you should post your pictures here !!

  3. Tara says:

    This is insane… I look IDENTICAL to your great-great grandmother… IDENTICAL! Would love to know more about them!

  4. Hannah says:

    My great grandmother actually shot and murdered my great grandfather. Crazy stuff.

  5. David Devlin says:

    I have been married for nearly 20 years. I can tell you EXACTLY why they are pointing guns at each other. 😉

    Love the men’s short ties, too.

  7. mixedmedia says:

    I think great-great-grandma looks like Helena Bonham Carter.

  8. Christina says:

    Okay, the one on the far right seriously looks just like me! Tish and Heather, I’m super curious to see your pictures now!

  9. Wendy Jane says:

    I would say they staged this picture for laughs but they look like if they caught someone laughing it wouldn’t end well.

    When Bonnie and Clyde’s famous photos went public many people emulated them by posing with guns. This is a great example.

    • Tim says:

      I agree. I think they are posing with guns–holding them up for the camera. The camera’s perspective makes it look like they are pointing them at each other. Her expression makes it look like she might be playing. But his doesn’t. He is just looking at the camera posing for a picture. No way is he pointing the gun at her.

    • Azalea says:

      To me their clothing looks pre 1930s. The womens hair and the style of their dresses look to me like around 1920 at the latest. Anyway, its a cool picture! I love old photos.

  11. Tish says:

    I have had several people send me the link to this post telling me that I look exactly like your great-great grandmother. What were their names?

  12. Rosie says:

    Shot-gun wedding – only they didn’t have any shot-guns, so they used pistols?

  13. LeeLee says:

    He said, “NO WAY!” – She said, “Yes In-deedy Buster!!” Meagan gramma won! Obviously! 🙂

  14. Aaron says:

    This is actually a pretty amazing photograph. Thanks for sharing!

  15. Rose says:

    Bonnie & Clyde!

  16. ian says:

    Were their names Bonnie and Clyde by any chance?

  17. Mike says:

    It was a mixed marriage, Mom was a Hatfield, Dad a McCoy….

  18. Heather Gilbert says:

    I would like to know who the women is on the far right as her and I look exactly alike!

  19. Andrea says:

    Your great-great grandmother looks strikingly like Kristen Stewart.
