Cleland, Catharine F. (Marriage - 11 OCT 1924)

On Saturday afternoon, Oct. 11, 1924, at the home of the bride's parents, northeast of Owen, Clark County, Wis., occurred the marriage of Catharine Frances, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Paul C. Cleland, and Walter Hansen, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Hansen.

Both young people are well known and popular in this community, having grown up here and attended the school of Owen. The bride spent a year at Lawrence College, Appleton, after her graduation.

The groom is an expert auto mechanic, having received his training in schools at Kansas City.

The home was decorated in autumn leaves and chrysanthemums, and twenty-eight guests assembled to honor the occasion.

The bride was dressed in white satin trimmed with lace, and wore the veil worn by her grandmother fifty years ago this winter. She carried a shower bouquet of bride's roses and lilies of the valley. She was attended by her sisters, Miss Helen of Owen, and Mrs. L. R. Peterson of New Castle, Ind., both of whom carried yellow chrysanthemums.

The groom was supported by Howard E. Rogers of Arena, Wis., and James P. Hansen, Jr. The ceremony was performed by Rev. W. F. Grandy of Withee, using the double ring service.

After receiving congratulations of their relatives and friends, a wedding dinner was served.

In the evening Mr. and Mrs. Hansen received their friends at Hoard Center School, where 100 guests assembled to wish them well. Much merriment was caused by the carrying off of the bride by some of her friends and the hunt for the groom's car, hidden in a neighboring garage. It was found and the young couple, was escorted out of town by a number of friends.

They will reside in Owen after their return from a camping trip through Wisconsin, Northern Illinois and to New Castle, Ind.

The bride received many beautiful and useful gifts.
