Double cousins

That's what my dad calls them - when siblings from one family marry siblings from another. The kids from each family are not only cousins, but double cousins.

We have a lot of those in my family. But these are our favorite pairs.

I'm guessing the date of the photo to be around 1905. And this one always cracks me up, because these were "good" Baptist boys, but they look to me like members of an organized crime family hiding out in the woods.

Elbert (1887-1978) and Earl (1901-1973) were brothers, and the sons of Jefferson William (1860-1941) and Margaret Malinda (Wharton) Burris (1862-1927).

George (1890-1974) and Homer (1887-1974) were also brothers and the sons of George Washington (Sr) (1856-1929) and Mary Mathilda (Wharton) Burris (1859-1938).

Here are the parents of the double cousins.
