Courtesy Shannon McNamara Shannon McNamara, 54, of Franklin, Tennessee, poses with her family after the engagement of her daughter, Caroline, 23. McNamara, 54, of Franklin, Tennessee, took to Facebook to post photos of the wedding dress in hopes someone would recognize it and claim the dress. Once the Facebook replies started pouring in, McNamara discovered an even stranger twist to her story. A friend of mine in the neighborhood writes me with an attachment with an article from four years ago, McNamara told ABC News. Woman Will Be the 11th Person in Her Family to Wear 120-Year-Old Heirloom Wedding Dress I told my husband, That is it, McNamara said of the dress featured in a 2012 ABCNews.com article . I recognized it right away and we had been at the same dry cleaners. The dry cleaner, the now-defunct White Way Cleaners, was where Kim Jones, a Nashville native, took her wedding dress to be cleaned and sealed after her Oct. 25, 1986, wedding. When Jones opened her wedding dress box in 2012 with her now-23-year-old daughter, she saw it was not her wedding dress. The dress given to Jones by the dry cleaner was McNamara's wedding dress, and vice versa.
