Aberdeen Daily News 16 May 1918 Wedding on Tuesday
Winner, May 13. - Mrs. Sadie W. Brownlow, superintendent of schools of Tripp and Todd counties, and prominent educator of South Dakota, and Hon. William Hickey, of Yankton, South Dakota, were married Tuesday, May 14, in the Catholic church at Fremont, Neb., Rev. J. J. O’Sullivan officiating. Mrs.. Brownlow is widely known throughout South Dakota, as an educator, because of her wonderful success in organizing the various scattered schools and districts outlying sections of the Rosebud. She has also brought the Junior Red Cross league in Tripp county to a high degree of efficiency.
Mr. Hickey is well known in South Dakota, having been sheriff of Yankton county for many years. For the past two years he has been deputy United States marshal, and was recently appointed United States marshal of South Dakota. His is said to be the highest salaried officer in the state.
The news service of the Press and Dakotan brought the above this morning, and war news was forgotten for the moment while the wire was verified. The Misses Genevieve and Catherine Hickey, of this city, daughters of Mr. Hickey, acknowledged also receiving a telegram stating briefly the marriage had taken place at 4:15 p. m. Tuesday at Fremont Neb., and that bride and groom were stopping at the Pathfinder hotel. The bridegroom promised to write later.
Members of the family, and a few intimate friends, have known of this approaching marriage, but the rest of the city and county did not, and the news will come as quite a surprise. The town of Winner has been visited quite often of late by Deputy United States Marshal Hickey, and it was supposed here the trips were strictly official. So they were too, but this popular federal and county official found a little extra time for private affairs, and this happy marriage resulted. The Press and Dakotan will join a host of friends in extending lavish wishes for every future happiness to Mr. and Mrs. Hickey, and will extend to the bride a most cordial welcome to Yankton, upon her arrival here. Mr. and Mrs. Hickey will leave for Chicago on a wedding trip and are expected here Saturday.
