Rigg, Frances (Marriage - 20 JUL 1916)

Cupid twanged his bow again and its arrow spend true. Cupid has a habit of piercing hearts when he goes forth to hunt and then leading his unresisting captives to that spot where a minister, a wedding altar and a wedding ceremony awaits them. On Thursday morning July 20, 1916, at 8:15 o'clock, this man of the bow watched two of his conquered ones stand before Rev. Hugh H. Owen at Chippewa Falls, Wis. and pledge their troth, the happy couple being Carl L. Johnson and Miss Frances Rigg.

These people were married at the Presbyterian Parsonage and were accompanied by Miss Adella Bruss of Withee, who acted as maid of honor, and Joseph Johnson, a brother of the groom, as best man. The groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Johnson of this city (Owen, Clark County, Wis.), and is superintendent of our high school. He is a young man of good habits and a pleasing personality, greatly admired by an extended list of acquaintances.

Mrs. Johnson comes of a respected family, being the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Rigg of Withee, Clark County, and she is well known as an accomplished young lady. She has been a assistant in the post office at Withee for the past four years and has enjoyed the esteem of all who have met her. These young people are now away on their honeymoon, and after Sept. 1st, they will be at home to their many friends in a newly furnished home, which the groom has provided.
