Shafer, Florence E. (Marriage - 5 JAN 1917)

The announcement of the marriage of Miss Florence E. Shafer of this city (Colby, Wis.), to Attorney John E. Hancock, formerly of Casey, Ill., has not been entirely unexpected, but will, no doubt, be a surprise to many. The marriage took place June 5th?? (Jan. 5th), in Illinois, but the young couple did not wish to make it public until Mr. Hancock had passed the state bar examination and had worked up a profitable law practice. In January he accepted the offer of partnership with Judge Brady of Haskell, Okla., where Mr. and Mrs. Hancock will reside when the new home, now being built, is ready for occupancy.

Miss Shafer is the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Shafer and has always been held in high esteem by all of her acquaintances. Mr. Hancock is a very agreeable and energetic young man and is bound to succeed in his chosen profession. Mr. and Mrs. Hancock have the very best wishes of our community.
