Clark - Nichols
Married in Poetry.
Precisely at five o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, May 29, 1889, in the west parlor of the Central Hotel of Wilmington, Ohio, were married Mr. Carlos E. Clark, of New Vienna, Ohio, to Miss Lucy E. Nichols, of Morrisville, Ohio. The couple had decided that Gay Waters should marry them and had come some miles to carry out their wish. License had been obtained from Hon. A. N. Williams, Probate Judge, and Gay Waters married the couple with the following ceremony :
It is useless to ask if you now both agree
To journey this ocean of life together;
As over the waves of this perilous sea
You vow to be true in all sorts of weather.
This license you bring is a proof that the State
Has sanctioned the fact that man still needs a mate;
I simply can finish what the State has begun.
And by its permission - pronounce you both one.
