Slocomb, Lydia (Marriage - 25 January 1946)

George Wilding has written The Press some details of the Slocomb-Barton wedding, which took place in Los Angeles January 25. He says that the wedding was solemnized at the West Adam Presbyterian Church chapel, and that the Clark County people of southern California were there. Mr. Wilding says that the groom, Edward Devere Barton, now of Los Angeles, is known in Clark County as Devere, and that he is the son of Anton Barton, a pioneer blacksmith of Neillsville.

Mrs. Elsie K. Stange writes to The Clark County Press from Baldwin Park, Cal., about the marriage of Lydia Slocomb to Devere Barton on January 25. She tells about the open house which was held Sunday, February 10, at the home of Mr. Barton’s daughter, Mrs. Della Combs, 3605 Watseka Ave., Los Angeles. This was attended by some 75 friends, who brought presents.

Mr. and Mrs. Barton, the newlyweds, were making their home temporarily at 3605 Watseka Ave., but are now at their apartment, 3104 S. Walton, Los Angeles 7, which has been redecorated.

Mrs. Stange recalls that she was the first teacher of Lydia Slocomb in the Reed School, Town of Grant. There Lydia was the third daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Austin Slocomb. Lydia was graduated from the Ripley Memorial Hospital in Minneapolis in 1924, and went to Los Angeles in 1929, where she has practiced as a nurse. She has been secretary of the Clark County Society of Southern California for 15 years, and at the meeting of January 13 was re-elected to serve another 15 years.

Mr. Barton was born and raised in Neillsville, and was long associated with his father, Anton Barton, in the blacksmith business.
