Holeton, Gertrude (20 AUG 1890)

Married, at the residence of the bride’s parents in the town of Holeton, Marathon Co., Wis., on Wednesday, Aug. 20th, 1890, Lorell M. Cole, of this village (Colby, Clark Co., Wis.), and Gertrude, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Holeton of Holeton, Rev. C. D. Scott officiating.

The above contracting parties are among the most estimable of the young people of this vicinity. Mr. Cole has lived in Colby from youth to manhood and has always been found true, honest and industrious. Last year he taught the grammar department of our village school with great credit to himself and profit to the pupils.

Miss Holeton is the eldest daughter of G. W. Holeton, has lived here and on the farm in Holeton, since her infancy and has endeared herself to her many acquaintances by her pleasant sociable and unaffected manners. Both of them have hosts of friends who will extend their heartiest congratulations and tender their very best wishes for the future welfare and happiness of the young couple.

The ceremony was performed in the presence of a few invited guests, after which all sat down to a sumptuous collation.

This morning the young couple took the train for Minneapolis and St. Paul where they will visit for several days, when they will return and make their home, for a year at least, at Dorchester, Clark Co., near which place Mr. Cole has secured a school.
