Frager, Elma Ardell (Marriage - 5 APR 1899)

On the evening of Wednesday, Apr. 5, 1899, at the residence of R.F. Kerr on the North Side (Neillsville, Clark County), occurred the marriage of Leo V. Edgbert and Miss Elma Ardell Frager.

At 7 o'clock the happy couple entered the parlor to the stains of Mendelsohn's beautiful wedding march, Miss Grace Harriman presiding at the piano, and Rev. A. B. Scovill performed the ceremony according to the beautiful and impressive "Ring Service" of the M.E. Church.

The bride was dressed in white and carried a beautiful bouquet of bride's roses. The groom wore the conventional suit of black, relived by a boutonniere of carnations.

The parlors, which were decked with foliage, were well filled with the relatives of the groom and friends of the bride a merry and happy group.

During the ceremony the contracting parties stood beneath two floral letters E. and F and as they were pronounce man and wife, the letter F. dropped, leaving the letter E - a symbol that both would henceforth bear one name.

After congratulations a sumptuous supper was partaken of.
