Overton, Mildred (Marriage - 29 June 1922)

Mr. Marion Benedict and Miss Mildred Overton were married June 29, 1922, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Overton, in Oshkosh, Rev. Greenwood, an Episcopal clergyman and old friend of the bride’s family officiating. Only relatives and close friends of the bride and groom were in attendance. They were attended by the bride’s brother, Mr. Benjamin Overton and her sister, Mrs. Seig. Miss Dorothy Huckstead of Neillsville, a cousin of the groom, played the wedding march.

The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Julius Benedict of Neillsville. He is one of the young men of whom this community is justly proud. As a student in high school he made an excellent record, and began a course in the state university, which was first interrupted by the trouble on the Mexican border, which called out the National Guards in the summer and fall of 1917 to enter the army. After considerable service, in which he was severely wounded in action, but recovered and on his return once more took up his course in the University, which he is pursuing to completion. He is quiet and modest in manner, but endowed with a fine mentality and high ideals of life, and is certain to secure recognition as a man of ability and serious purposes.

The bride taught for two years in Neillsville Schools, and won a high place here in the esteem of parents and pupils. She is a graduate of Oshkosh State Normal School, where she made a good record as a student, and to which as a teacher she has been a credit. This young couple begin life a strong bond of sympathy in scholarship, and in their attitude toward the finer things of life. They deserve the best gifts that this world has to offer. They went immediately to Madison, where Mr. Benedict continues his studies at the University during the summer school session, their home in Madison being all ready for housekeeping.
