NORA SOEFKER/HENRY OLSON MARRIAGE


The home of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Soefker of the West Side was the scene of a merry crowd last Wednesday, June 27th, 1906, when their daughter Nora, was united in marriage to Henry Olson, son of Ole Olson, who lives just east of the city limits (Greenwood, Clark County). Some 100 guests, including relatives, were present to witness the ceremony and celebrate the happy occasion.


The nuptial knot was tied by Rev. J. Schmalz, pastor of Emmanuel's congregation at four o'clock in the afternoon. The bride and groom were attended by Mary Soefker and Selma Johnson as bridesmaids and John Olson and David Gustafson as best men.


Following the ceremony making the twain one, all present partook of a generous wedding supper and in the evening, dancing and general merry making was indulged in by those so inclined, a large bowery being erected for the purpose.


Mr. and Mrs. Olson were the recipients of numerous valuable presents, including a large wagon load of of furniture and housekeeping paraphernalia. After a month of so they will go to housekeeping on his land near W. C. Stabnow's place in Beaver.


The Gleaner extends best wishes for the new husband and wife and is joined in this expression by all friends of the worthy couple.
