Wilson, Martha Louisa (DEC 1914)

Miss Martha Louisa Wilson, eldest daughter of J.W. Wilson, one of Spooner’s prominent pioneer residents, was quietly married to Mr. Herbert W. Quinnell of Neillsville, Wednesday afternoon at three o’clock at the home of her parents on Oak Street. Only the immediate family was present. Rev. Crawford of the Episcopal Church was the officiating clergyman. Miss Alta Crocker played the wedding march. Miss Elizabeth Quinnell of Neillsville was the maid of honor and Mr. Magnuson acted as best man. The bride was beautifully gowned in white voile.

After the ceremony a sumptuous wedding dinner was served by Mrs. Wilson.

Miss Wilson is one of the most brilliant girls of Spooner’s younger set and is beloved by all who know her. She graduated from our high school in the class of 1914, with honors.

Mr. Quinnell is employed on the Omaha as a brakeman, and is a young man of sterling qualities.

The young couple departed on the evening for Neillsville and other points for a short wedding trip. They expect to return Jan. 1st and start housekeeping. The best wishes of the entire community go with them for a happy and prosperous married life. --Spooner Advocate
