Cross, Kittie (Marriage - 13 AUG 1884)

Married, at the residence of the bride's parents, Wednesday evening, Aug. 13, 1884, by Rev. W. T. Hendren, of Neillsville, Clark County, Mr. H. D. Cooley of Brodhead, Wis., to Miss Kittie Cross, of Humbird.

A large company of relatives and friends were present among which were a number from Neillsville numbering about eighty in all. It was evident to all that willing hands had been busily engaged in preparing for the event. The parlor was totally decorated with festoons of evergreen, and in the center of the room hung a marriage bell of evergreen decorated with flowers. At precisely 9 o'clock the contracting parties were ushered into the room, and taking their stand beneath the emblematic bell, the twain was soon made one. After the host of friends had congratulated Mr. and Mrs. Cooley to their hearts content, the company was ushered into the dining room, where stood another memento of the willing hands in the shape of a sumptuous repast. The newly married couple took their departure on the midnight train, escorted to the depot by a large number of guests. Both are to be congratulated for their taste displayed in the choice of a partner for life, and they may rest assured that the best wishes of a large circle of friends will always be with them.
