Dodte, Olga (Marriage - 25 AUG 1915)

Wednesday evening Aug. 25, 1915, Judge Oscar W. Schoengarth and Miss Olga Dodte were united in marriage at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. Dodte in Pine Valley, Clark County, Wis., Rev. L.B. Colman officiating. Aside from relatives of the contracting parties only a few close friends were present.

He was elected Police Justice two terms and is serving his third term as County Judge. He is a man of conservative sound judgement, a progressive citizen, taking an active part in affairs of the community, and has a wide acquaintance throughout the state. While not a politician in the ordinary sense he has taken such a part as good citizenship demanded; besides local honors he has had the distinction of being elected a delegate to the National Republican Convention in Chicago in 1912. His ability and integrity as county judge is fully attested by the fact that he has three times been chosen to fill the place.

The bride also was born in Neillsville and grew to womanhood here. She graduated from Neillsville High School, the Oshkosh State Normal and the Watertown, Minn. Normal. She taught successfully in the city schools of Omro, Wis., and in (the rest of my copy was cut off)
