Welsch, Mina (24 OCT 1888)

Married, at the residence of the bride’s father, in this village (Colby, Clark Co, Wis.), Wednesday evening, Oct. 24th, 1888, by George F. Dailey, Esq., Joseph T. Selves of Neillsville, Clark Co., and Miss Mina Welsch of Colby.

Mr. Selves is highly spoken of by people who have known him for years. He was for some time foreman for the late N. H. Withee. Miss Welsch is the second eldest daughter of our townsman, Henry Welsch, and is a very estimable young lady.

The marriage ceremony was performed in the presence of a number of invited guests, at 6 o’clock, immediately after the ceremony the Colby Band serenaded the couple, and then all sat down to an elegant supper prepared for the occasion. After supper the company repaired to the hall, which had been handsomely decorated for the occasion, where the young people held sway and tripped the light fantastic until early morn, to dulcet strains from J. C. Smith’s orchestra of Greenwood.

Many valuable presents were bestowed. All present and all acquaintances of the contracting parties unite in wishing them the most unalloyed happiness and prosperity through life.
