Marriage Announcements

Claremont: Miss Minnie Catt, a popular school teacher, and daughter of Mrs. B.D. Fowler, was married last week at Russellville, Il., to a Rev. Smith. The newly married couple will make Lawerenceburg, Ind., their home for the present. [Feb. 1886]


The Olney papers speak of the marriage ceremony which united Christian Wilhour and Rosetta Zerkel as having been performed in Preston township, Richland county. As this couple obtained their license in Newton we would advise them, if they haven't, to don't; and either to get new license in Richland county and be married there, or have the ceremony reperformed in Jasper county.
