Gorsegner, Rose (Marriage - 5 DEC 1917)

Mr. Anton Wnukowski, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ignatz Wnukowski and Miss Rose Gorsegner, oldest daughter of Mr. Christ Gorsegner, were united in the holy bonds of matrimony on Wednesday, Dec. 5, 1917, at Stanley, Wis. The bride was attended by Anna Wnukowski, sister of the groom, and John Broda acted as best man. A wedding supper was served at the home of the bride, after which the bridal couple departed for Miles City, Mont., where the groom has already prepared a home for his bride. The young couple is widely known and highly esteemed and a host of friends and relatives wish them a long and happy journey through life.

Does it say that he acted as best man ? Or was it assumed because his name was signed as witness there were times when people were married and the people who acted as the best man and maid of honor were not the people that signed the certificate because it was to be some one over 21,as a wittness.Therefore when we find the marriage license it really only tells who they had sign as wittness and not always who they had as attendants.

Carol, Thanks for your thoughtful response. I have a copy of the marriage license. The signatures of the witnesses are of Anna M. Wnukowski, my father's sister, and Constantine V. Kowalski, my father's cousin. Anna was born in 1887; she was 29 at the time of this marriage. Constantine was born in 1888; he was 28. It is possible that Uncle Con was unable to attend the ceremony. His draft registration card, dated June 5, 1917, states that he had pulmonary tuberculosis. --Goldie W. Magee
