Gilmore, Cecil H. (Marriage - 22 SEP 1914)

Mr. Henry C. Hanson and Miss Cecil H. Gilmore were married at Barton, N.D., Sept. 22, 1914.

The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ole C. Hanson who live on Grand Ave. in this city (Neillsville, Clark County). He was born and brought up in Neillsville, was educated in our city schools and after taking a course in telegraphy at a railroad school in Minneapolis, he did station work for some time in South Dakota. Two years ago while visiting his uncle at Barton, N.D., he met the young lady who has now become his wife. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George H. Gilmore, one of the most prominent families in that part of the state. She was brought up on her father’s large farm near Barton, was educated in the village schools and later in St. Paul. She is a musician of considerable ability and a charming young lady in every way. One of the interesting features of the affair was a shower given to the young couple by the people of Barton. While the prospective bride and groom were getting their license, seven or eight auto loads of their friends went out to the bride’s home to greet them on their return, bringing a beautiful layout of silverware, cut glass and other fine presents.

The young couple arrived in Neillsville last Thursday night. They may spend the winter here. At present their future plans are not fully settled. The groom may go back on the railroad or in the spring them may go to Canada to take up farming.

We join with their many Wisconsin and North Dakota friends in offering them best wishes and hopes for happiness.
