MARSH-SCHAEFER--ROMANCE OF OCEAN--JOHN MARSH OF IRON MOUNTAIN WINS PRETTY BRIDE--ALSATION STEALS HIS HEART--Girl Was Without Money or Friends and Intentions of Lover Were at First Questioned Iron Mountain,--April 2--John Marsh is one of the substantial business men of Iron Mountain and that he should be the hero in a romance is one of the features of real life that makes it stranger than fiction. He is a principal in one of the strangest events of the sea over chronicled and he has returned from a recent visit to Europe, whither he went a single man without thought of changing his condition to return to his home acccompanied by a winsome wife.  When Maria Dondner, a 19-year-old Alsation girl, took passage on the North German Lloyd liner Koenig Albert, which arrived one day last week, she was maid to the family of Jacob Schaefer, the billardist. When the voyage was begun, the girl had as much an idea of becoming a bride (?) as much as she had of being an empress. She had never seen John Marsh before the steamship started, and he had never seen her. Marsh was a first cabin passenger. Toward the end of the trip he had seen enough of the pretty Alsation to convince him that she was desirable as a wife. He communicated his ideas to the Schaefer family, a meeting was arranged between him and the object of his affections, and very soon he announced that his suit had been successful.  When the boarding officers went on the ship Miss Wichmann, one of the women inspectors, saw the young girl, who appeared to be alone, and asked what she intended to do when landed. The girl answered innocently that she did not know. The inspector became suspicious, and, when she sought more information, the girl said she intended to be married to one of the first cabin passengers.  The idea seemed to be so preposterous, as the girl said she was without means and without friends, that she was directed to go to Ellis island. Then Marsh stepped in and insisted that she he allowed to land with the other first class passengers, as he would marry her in the very first hour off the boat; but the girl was obliged to go to Ellis island.  Marsh immediately after landing rushed to procure a pass that entitled him to admission at the Ellis island. An inspector had been sent to the North German Lloyd office to ascertain if Marsh was sufficiently interested to procure a pass, and he and Marsh met there. When they arrived at the island the inspector assured his fellows that Marshed seemed in earnest and that a marriage ought to be allowed at once.  A minister was summoned, and with Inspector Thompson and Matron Stucklin as witnesses, the ceremony was performed. Then the happy couple departed for their home in this city.--Saginaw News, Saginaw, MI., April 2, 1903

The wedding was an event of last week and the ceremony was performed at the Methodist Episcopal church in Iron Mountain. Miss Anna Zimmerman attended the bride and Leslie Wirty acted as best man.  The bride was attired in a gown of pearl gray georgette and wore a hat to match. Following the ceremony a wedding dinner was served to the immediate relatives and friends of the couple. The home was attractive with peonies and roses arranged about the rooms. Later in the day, Mr. and Mrs. Wirty left for a honeymoon trip to Chicago. Before returning to their home in Quinnesec, they will spend some time at the home of relatives in Ironwood. They will be guests of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Martin, West Aurora street. --Ironwood Daily Globe, Ironwood, MI., July 8, 1926
