The home of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Root was the scene of a pretty wedding Thursday, Nov. 28, 1901, when their daughter, Chloe Frances was united in marriage to John H. Griffiths at high noon. The bride and groom attended by the bride's brother, Elvin D. Root and Miss Augusta Meihak, marched to the arched corner, where Rev. J. A. Hill spoke the words that made them one.

The bride wore a pale blue dress trimmed with white silk and appliqué. The groom was attired in dark Blue. After the ceremony a dainty lunch was served, a large number of guests were present. Those from away were Mr. Richard Hill and family of Little Cedar, Iowa., Mr. Ed Griffiths and mother, Mrs. John Griffiths of El Dorado, Iowa., Mr. Will Griffiths of Oshkosh, Mrs. Mary Root of Glenbeula and Mr. S.

The bride and groom were recipients of many beautiful presents. The newly wedded pair will make their future home in Oshkosh, Wis. Both the contracting parties are well known to our readers.
