To The
Lee County Weddings

Benjamin Frank Yocum
Verneena Fairchild

For two young people of Compton, Thanksgiving day this year will have a doubly joyous significance, says the Compton Register. On that day this year, November 24th at noon, Mr. Benjamin Frank Yocum of Dixon, Illinois, and Miss Verneena R. Fairchild of Compton, Ill., were united in marriage at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Zina S. Fairchild of Melugen's Grove.

The marriage was solemnized in the presence of some fifty or more guests, relatives and friends of one or both of the contracting parties, by the Rev. Leslie M. Burwell. A sumptuous Thanksgiving repast was spread and enjoyed by all present. Mr. and Mrs. Yocum will settle on a farm a short distance southeast of West Brooklyn.
