Martin, Dorothy J. (Marriage - 30 JUN 1920)

Mr. Austin A. Petersen and Miss Dorothy Jean Martin were united in marriage Wednesday morning, June 30, 1920, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mrs. and Mrs. A.C. Martin, Rev. D. J. Kerr officiating.

The groom was attended by his brother, Mr. Arne Petersen, and Miss Ruth Huntzicker of Greenwood, was bridesmaid. The bride wore white chiffon over net, with tulle veil trimmed with pearls, and carried a shower bouquet of roses and sweet peas. The bridesmaid wore pink georgette and carried a bouquet of pink roses. The rooms were beautifully and tastily decorated in pink and white. Only relatives and near friends were in attendance.

The groom is one of Neillsville, Clark County, Wis. most active businessmen, being associated with his father, A.J. Petersen, and his brother, Arne, in their Cash Hardware Co. He made a fine record in the War, winning not only a commission as First Lieutenant, but also the decoration of the Croix de Guerre for distinguished service. In civic life he has shown himself as clean, upright, efficient and worthy as in his military career.

The bride is one of our choicest young ladies. She grew to womanhood here, graduated from Neillsville High School in the class of 1912, and from the University of Minnesota in 1916. Since then she has been a successful teacher. She is not only intellectual and scholarly, but is possessed also of good practical common sense, and a lovable disposition that has shown in her helpfulness in her home.

After a particularly fine wedding breakfast the young couple departed on a wedding trip and on their return will begin housekeeping in the Hemp house on Fourth St., where they will be at home after Aug. 1st.

Among those who attended the wedding were Mrs. Ed Rafferty of Madison, Mr. and Mrs. J.A. Haas of Chicago, Ruth, Bethel and Grace Huntzicker of Greenwood and Caroline Harrington of Minneapolis.
