Brawley, Martha (2 JAN 1898)

Married, at the residence of the groom in the town of Hull, Marathon Co., Wis., on Sunday, Jan 2nd, 1898, by Rev. S.A. Hoffman, Mr. George N. Quackenboss and Mrs. Martha Brawley, both of the town of Hull.

It is long since a marriage has aroused so much interest in this vicinity as the above, from the fact that the parties are so well and favorably known. Everybody know George and everybody likes him. He is an honest, steady, industrious farmer, with a nice farm in the southern part of the town of Hull, where he has lived the past sixteen years by himself, and kept his house as neat as a pin, besides doing his farm work. Many a pleasant jest has been cast at George because he did not marry, but he accepted the jests in the same pleasant manner in which they were offered, only saying, "wait until I make up my mind." And we have waited. It took George a long time to make up his mind, but when he did he showed more than ordinary good sense in choosing the excellent woman he did.

The friends of this couple filled the house to its utmost, and among those present were fifteen of George’s brother Odd Fellows, who were glad to see him take this step.

Immediately after the ceremony the tables were spread and a bountiful dinner partaken of and then the fun began and was kept up until the wee small hours of Monday morning.

They were recipients of many presents, tokens of good will and friendship.
