BELATED NOTICE OF A GARFIELD (KS) WEDDING
(Editors note:† Iíve put this clipping on this site since it pertains to persons who have previously resided in Allen County)
Through the misplacing of a notebook, by the news-gatherers of this paper, a number of news items were overlooked a couple of weeks ago, among them the announcement of the marriage of two popular young Garfield people, Miss Mary ROBERTS and Mr. Jos. E.† FERRIS.† The ceremony was performed Wednesday, September 30th, at the home of the bride's mother, Mrs. Lizzie ROBERTS.† The words which pronounced the young couple husband and wife were spoken by MISS [actually reads Kiss] Madeline SOUTHARD, a Methodist evangelist who held meetings in Garfield for about two months about two years ago, assisted by MISS Lillian BEARD.† Miss SOUTHARD was enroute from Kansas City to Colorado Springs, and stopped off to perform the ceremony.
Mr. FERRIS is an enterprising young contractor and builder who came to Garfield from LaHarpe about two years ago.† He has been very successful in his business at Garfield, and is now rebuilding the Methodist Church, and has charge of the carpenter work on the new Orr and Miller (a single word illegible) cement store building which O.A. NEELEY has the contract for.† He also got the contract for the new residences for Angus MORROW, Mr. MARTIN and others.† His bride is the youngest daughter of Mrs. ROBERTS, and is a sister of Blaine and Hugh ROBERTS.† She has resided in Pawnee County for twenty-three years, and has been the constant hoe companion of her widowed mother and brothers.
The wedding was a very quiet affair, only members of the family being present.† After the ceremony the young couple took the train for Kinsley for a ten-days' honeymoon at LaHarpe and other points.† On their return they at once commenced housekeeping in the new house which the groom had ready in Garfield.† Their wedding cards announced that they would be at home after the 15th of this month.† They both have a large circle of warm friends in their home community, with whom this paper joins in extending hearty congratulations and best wishes for future happiness and prosperity.
