Rhea, Gertrude J. (24 AUG 1904)

Elmer J. Rossman of this city (Greenwood) and Miss Gertrude J. Rhea of Thorp caught their friends napping, and last Wednesday, August 24, 1904, at 10 a.m., were quietly married by Rev. A. B. Soule of Stanley, at the home of the bride’s parents, County Superintendent of Schools, A.O Rhea, and wife.

The ceremony was simple and was witnessed only by the family of the bride and by the groom’s sister, Miss Mabel Rossman of this city.

Immediately following the brief ceremony the bridal pair were driven to Stanley where they took the train for Minneapolis, where they spent their honeymoon with relatives and friends, returning to Greenwood Tuesday morning of this week.

Mr. and Mrs. Rossman will keep house at the home of the groom’s mother and will be at home to their friends after October first. Both of the guilty parties are well known to Gleaner readers who have none but the best wishes for them. The groom is one of the Fricke Rossman Co., general merchants, while the bride has been, for several years,, the successful teacher of the second primary department of the local school.
