On this day October 18, 1952

Hank Williams married Billie Jean Jones Eshlimar in Minden, Louisiana. The next day two public ceremonies were held at the New Orleans Civic Auditorium, where 14,000 seats were sold for each. After Williams’s death, a judge ruled that the wedding was not legal because Jones Eshlimar’s divorce had not become final until eleven days after she married Williams.
