To those of you not
able to be at our September meeting you really missed a wonderful
program. Pippa White made you a part of the immigrants arriving at
Ellis Island, going thru the medical check-ups and waiting! Oh that
waiting! You could have heard a pin drop. If you ever have a chance to
see this program, please try and go, it is well worth your time. So
glad we were able to bring it to our group.
October program of show and tell, really brings some unusual things to
mind, also new clues you might apply to your own situation. Come and
bring your items with you-we are always greatful for members to be
involved in the programs.

DOUBLE WEDDING AT
Brides are Sisters and the Grooms
Intimate Friends. Live Near North Bend.
There was a double
wedding at the courthouse yesterday afternoon. County Judge Briggs
officiated and the contracting parties were Jesse C Rogers, 23, and
Myrtle Thomsen, 18; and Joseph H Datel, 23, and Mary B Thomsen, 20, all
of the North Bend Neighborhood.
The young people
drove to Fremont in a double carriage, had the nuptial knot tied, and
then drove home.
Mr Rogers and Miss
Thomsen acted as bridgegroom and bridesmaid for Mr Datel and Miss Mary
Thomsen, the latter named couple being married first. Then Mr and Mrs
Datel stood with Mr Rogers and Miss Thomsen. The young ladies were
prettily and fittingly gowned for such an occasion. The ceremony was
performed at 4 o’clock.
The Misses Thomsen
are sisters, and the young men are intimate friends. They have lived in
the neighborhood a number of years and are highly respected. The
marriage does not come as a surprise to their friends.
This is the first
time in several years that a double wedding has been celebrated in
