Thomas Wagg and Jane Hodgson pose for the camera on their wedding day. I thought her dress was beautiful. (They are not relatives but are part of the collection of photographs that belonged to my great Aunt Margaret. )
Thomas Maxwell Wagg, age 27 born in Mindemoya, Ontario and resident in Mindemoya, Ontario and son of Francis Wagg and Elizabeth Ann Cook married Jane Hodson, age 25 born and resident in Mindemoya, Ontario. and daughter of George Hodgson and Jane Williamson.
The date of marriage was either the 15 or 18 of June 1905 (I think it is 15 and the indexer says 18). It was not registered until 18 July 1905.
The photograph was taken by a Gore Bay photographer.

Thomas Wagg's father Francis Wagg - 5th marriage married my great great aunt Sarah Hillborn nee Vincer 1 November 1921. So although not related there is a family connection. My great uncle Isaac Maurice Johnston married Thomas' sister Frances Margaret Wagg.
1906 was a very sad year for the Wagg family on the Manitoulin. This beautiful couple both met an early death. On 21 May Jane's baby boy was still born. Six days later Jane died of confinement. On about 24 November Thomas drowned on the Steamer Jones.
When I chose this photograph, I didn't know the story was going to have a sad ending.
