A NOVEL MARRIAGE CONTRACT
Made Here in Union Just 44 Years Ago--Original Was Written in Hebrew

In looking over old papers in his father’s safe a few days ago, Mr. Lambert W. Jones came across some of special interest, says the Newberry Observer. Perhaps the most interesting of these old papers is a marriage contract made in 1861. Following is a copy.

Translation and duplicate of the Contract of Marriage made between Abraham Harris and Miss Frederica Koppel, the original of which is in Hebrew:

On the Third day of the week the Seventh day of the month of Elul Anno Mundi Five Thousand Six Hundred and twenty[-]one, corresponding with the Eighty Sixth year of the Independence of South Carolina as we reckon in the village of Unionville, South Carolina, Mr. Abraham son [of] Michael Harris asked Miss Frederica daughter of Jacob Koppel to become his wife according to the law of Moses and Israel; that he would respect, esteem, support and provide for her agreeably to the customs usually practiced by the Jews, who truly and faithfully respect, esteem, support and provide for their wives, and that he would willingly allow her the Virgin dowry of Two Hundred silver Zusim to which she is entitled by the Jewish law. And further more that he would maintain, support and provide her with all things necessary and live with her a conjugal life according to the customs of the world. Now the said Miss Frederica, having agreed to become his wife, brought to him her portion in silver and gold, in wearing apparel, ornamental dresses, beddings and furniture to the amount of Five Hundred Dollars, to which sum the aforesaid Bridegroom voluntarilly added the sum of Four Thousand Dollars current Money of this village, binding himself, his heirs and assignees from this day and forever to pay to the said Bride or her heirs the aforesaid portion and the sum added, with the most exquisite property, whether real or personal estate, which he posses(sic.) under the canopy of Heaven or should hereafter acquire. And lastly doth the aforesaid Bridegroom pledge himself to perform and execute in the most ample manner every condition specified in this Contract agreeably to the written contracts which are established and in force by ordinance of our ancient sages without any reservation whatever.

And we the undersigned Evidences received from the aforesaid Bridegroom, Mr. Abraham son of Michael Harris a formal declaration and acknowledgement that he delivered this Contract of Marriage for the sole use and benefit of the aforesaid Bride Miss Frederica daughter of Jacob Koppel and doth hereby confirm all the foregoing conditions and stipulations.

The whole is hereby approved, satisfied and established.

The guests filed in to the "airs of the long ago," the music rendered by the younger Clary sons, accompanied on the piano by one of their sisters. One of the violins used was the property of Capt. Clary when a young man while the piano was the same that Mrs. Clary used in the long ago. The Mt. Enon hand honored the occasion with its presence.

The guests were received by Mrs. Pauline Strother of Newberry, while Miss Sallie Bouknight presided at the punch bowl. The dinner was served with that informality which characterized the customs of ante-bellum days. Of the 80 persons who witnessed the marriage of this couple 50 years ago only seven now survive. One of these, John S. Busch, now living near Trenton, was present yesterday and none enjoyed the day more than he. Among the presents was a gold-headed cane presented to Capt. Clary by W. C. Clary, his oldest son, and a gold brooch for Mrs. Clary from the oldest daughter. The aged couple were literally showered with golden coins.

Among those present, beside the children and grandchildren were: Mr. and Mrs. Pink Bouknight, Miss Sallie Bouknight, Dr. and Mrs. James K. Gilder of Newberry, Mr. and Mrs. D. C. Spearman of Newberry, John S. Busch of Trenton, Mrs. Fannie Colman, Mr. and Mrs. M. A. Colman, Miss Demmie Coleman, Mrs. H. H. Ellis, Mrs. Pauline Strother, Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Smith, Mr. and Mrs. T. B. Sanders, Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Floyd, and Mrs. Minnie Wallace.

Several ex-slaves of the Clary family were present, and the occasion brought vividly to their memory "the kind of weddings that were had in the good old days," as one of them expressed it. Capt. Clary is now in his 72nd year, while the bride of these 50 years is just 68. Both are enjoying excellent health, and in leaving the guests all wished for them many more happy years of life.

Dr. Amos Wells, now of Minnesota, Weds Miss Gussie Dickert of Newberry - The State, Feb. 29, 1909

Newberry, Aug 28,1909

Dr. Amos Wells of Minneaplis left yesterday with his bride from the Palmettos, nee Miss Gussie Dickert, for his home, among the snows in far away Minnesota, and was accompanied for a part of the way by the bride's sister, Miss Lucile Dickert, and Miss Pearl McCracken. Dr. Wells was born and raised in this county, but for several years past has been professor of dental surgery in the University of Minnesota. He is also graduate of Newberry college, having won honor in the largest classes in the life of that institution. His father, who was one of the youngest as well as the largest contractors of his day, had the honor of building the first Newberry college building, which was destroyed by the federal soldiers. He rebuilt it after Reconstruction and it stands today a monument to the Lutheran church, South

Mrs. Wells is a brunette of a pronounced type, and was considered as one among the handsomest and most charming young ladies of the city. She was twice selected as sponsor for the James D. Nance camp, Confederate veterans to general reunions, once at New Orleans and again last year at Memphis.

The couple were married several days ago, owing to the wish of the bride, to have the ceremony performed by her own pastor, the Rev. Mr. Fulenwilder, who was then at home on a few days' visit from his annual vacation. They were to have started next day on their homeward journey, but owning to a sudden illness of the groom it was delayed until this morning.

While the bride claims Newberry as her home she has spent her time mostly in travel during the last several years. She is a daughter of Col. D. A. Dickert, well known throughout the State as a noted soldier, a graceful writer, a "rabid partizan and an unreconstructed rebel." There are some strange coincidents in the union, the fathers of both having entered the Confederate service in the very beginning of the war, served in adjoining companies, in the Third South Carolina infantry, served as comrades during the four years with Lee in his campaign in Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania, and one year with Longstreet in Georgia and Tennessee. Returning their ways parted until this reunion by the marriage of their youngest children.

Col. Dickert entered the service while a boy of 15 and came out as captain of his company, with a record for courage and gallantry second to none in the service. He, with two others of his comrades, are the only survivors who can truthfull say they heard "the first and the last gun" of the great rebellion. Col. Dickert, as a private on duty at the "Star of West" battery, witnessed the first shot fired at Sumter, and as commander of the rear guard saw the last shell fired as Gen. Johnston left his last stand at Bentonville.

He was the only infantry commander that brought his troop out without surrendering, leaving the army the night before the capitulation, with his company and two others, all armed and equipped. A description of how he "ran the gauntiet" of Sherman's pickets has recently been graphically told in many issues of The Herald and News.

He was among the very first to receive a commission from Gov. Hampton, being appointed colonel of the Third infantry. Col. Dickert has written largely for the Southern magazines and newspapers of the day, and is the author of the "History of Kershaw's Brigade."

Wyche/Goggans - The State November 21, 1915

Prosperity, Nov 20 - The wedding of Miss Isoline Wyche of Prosperity and James Furman Goggans of Columbia was solemnized at the home of the former Tuesday evening, November 16. The guests were received by Misses Eva Goggans and Effie Hawkins with Cecil Wyche and W. E. Moseley as ushers.
Decorations greeted the eye on entering the hall and all were drawn toward the centre where the ceremony was performed by the Rev. E. W. Leslie of Grace Lutheran church.
At the appointed hour to the strains of the Lohengrin wedding march played by Mrs. J. D. Quattlebaum, the two little ribbon girls, Rebecca Harmon and Grace Wheeler, in simple short waist dresses of pink, descended the stairs which were carpeted in white, with side draperies of white and clinging vines of Southern smilax. Next came the maid of honor, Miss Caro Wyche. The bride in her wedding gown of shimmering white charmeuse made princess effect, on train, with waist of georgette crepe and real lace, wearing her bridal vell cap effect, fashioned with orange blossoms was beautiful. She wore a pendant set with diamonds, the gift of the groom, and caried a bouquet of bride roses and ferns.
The bride entered on the arm of her father, by whom she was given in marriage, met the groom with his best man, John Goggans, of Newberry near the centre of the vine and ribbon clad inclosure.
After receiving the congratulations of their numberous friends and relatives, the bride and groom together with their young friends entered the dining room. The bride's table made of itself a picture. The draperies of tulle suspended from the ceiling to the four corners of the table were caught here with bunches of white chrysanthemums and ferns. The centre was a plaque with silver trimmings supporting a beautifully decorated cake. Much merriment was excited in cutting the cake, the ring falling to Miss Minnie Huiet, the dime to Miss Eva Goggans, the thimble to W. E. Moseley, the button to Cecil Wyche.
As the bride ascended the stairs to don her traveling suit of blue with fur trimmings and hat, gloves and shoes to match, she threw her bouquet which was caught by Miss Marie Schumpert.
Mrs. Alma Nance and Miss Blanche Kibler directed the guests to the dining room where they were served a salad course by a bevy of young girls, followed with coffee and cake over which table Miss Lottie Halfacre presided. Miss Kate Mae Nance presided over the bride's register. During the evening Mesdames J. Frank Browne and James D. Quattlebaum delighted the guests with a number of well selected four hand piano selections. During the merrymaking the bride and groom slipped away by automobile to Newberry where they took the train for an extended wedding journey through the North.
Miss Wyche is the older daughter of Dr. and Mrs. C. T. Wyche. She was educated at Winthrop college, Sorbonne university, Paris, and under private tutors in Berlin. She has occupied the chair of modern language in a college in Athens, Ga., and Cotty college, Nevada, Mo. Her beauty, lovely disposition and winning ways have proclaimed her a universal favorite in her home town.
Mr. Goggans is a rising young business man of sterling qualities, of Columbia, associated with and manager for E. M. DuPre. Among the out of town guests attending the wedding were a number from Newberry, Miss Bess Lane of Dillon, Miss Minnie Huiet of Marion, J. C. Copeland, M. D. DuPre, R. H. McDonald, James D. Miot, R. E. Craig of Columbia, Mr. and Mrs. Jake Dominick of Kinards.
