The Marriage of Robert John Woodington and Lula Mae Behncke

December 26, 2016

Robert John Woodington, the youngest brother of my grandmother, Ethel Woodington, was born in Cassville, Dodge County, Wisconsin on 17 December 1908. He lived there into his 20s, but by 1937, in the depths of the Great Depression, he was working at a canning factory in West Bend, Wisconsin.

He returned home to get Lula Mae Behncke, who was living in Lancaster, Grant County, Wisconsin. They married on 29 November, 1937 in Dubuque, Iowa.
