Bemis, Ina (24 MAY 1919)

Last Saturday morning at 10:30 o'clock, the marriage of Miss Ina Bemis of Humbird, Clark County, Wis., and Ira W. Meacham of the town of Unity, Clark County, took place at Loyal, rev. Streevy performing the ceremony. Mr. and Mrs. George Schofield were the attendants.

After the ceremony the wedding party visited the Richard Einfeldt home near Greenwood, where a bounteous wedding dinner was served. In the afternoon the wedding party all went down to Black River with hook and line, and the "finny tribe" present the young couple with their number, and all went merrily as the wedding bells (?) were peeled out joyously as they entered the Einfeldt home on their return.

The young people are well known and very highly esteemed, the bride having taught the Groveside school the past two years. They will reside on the farm of the groom's father, where they went to housekeeping immediately.

Monday evening all their friends of the neighborhood surprised them with a serenade and shower combined, the ladies bringing well filled lunch baskets, while the men took care of musical instruments (circle saws, guns, cow bells, etc.). After spending a very enjoyable evening and demolishing ten gallons of ice cream and the lunch, all departed, leaving some substantial presents, and best wishes for a long and happy life. (Spencer Record; May 30, 1919)

The wedding announcement was a complete surprise to many young friends of the bride in and about Humbird. Mrs. Meacham is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walt Bemis, a graduate of our schools in the Class of 1912, was a teacher in the rural schools of the district for a short time. Best wishes are extended by all friends.
