Huntley, Elva (Marriage - 26 DEC 1904)

Mr. George Omar Richardson and Miss Elva Huntley were united in marriage Monday at 9 o?clock a.m., Dec. 26, 1904, Rev. G.W. Longenecker officiating. The ceremony took place at the residence of the bride?s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Huntley. Miss Jennie Alexander acted as bridesmaid and Winn Harriman as groomsman. Miss Grace Harriman played the wedding march. The rooms were beautifully and appropriately decorated with holly and ferns. The bride was dressed in white and the groom in the customary black. About thirty of their friends assembled to witness the ceremony, and many beautiful presents were bestowed.

A wedding breakfast was served and the bride and groom took the 11:18 train for St. Paul and Minneapolis. They will be at Home after Feb. 1, 1905, at 39 Ninth St. North, Fargo, N.D.

The bride is the eldest daughter of Mayor and Mrs. Wm. Huntley. She was born in the town of Weston, Clark County and came to Neillsville with her parents when a little girl. During the time her father was postmaster, she assisted him in the office where she became known to everyone for miles around Neillsville and was universally admired for her politeness and efficiency. There was never a Neillsville girl who had more friends and well wishers. During the past three years she has held a responsible position in an underwriter?s office in Minneapolis.

Mr. Richardson is a stranger to Neillsville People, but is a man of good appearance and has shown evidence of good common sense in the choice of a wife. He is in the employ of the Fairbanks Morse Co. and has his headquarters at Fargo, N.D.

The people of Neillsville and vicinity certainly feel an interest in the welfare and happiness of the young couple and wish them the best of fortune.
