Ezam Secor and Leah Jacques

Bust shots of their wedding picutres:
My great-grandparents Ezam (Sicard) Secor and Leah Jacques. Ezam's birth name is Sicard but when he came to Grand Traverse county it somehow got americanized. Whether it started with him or someone who heard the Sicard (See-Car) as Secor (See-Core). Married 1880 St. Francis Church, Traverse City, Michigan
