----------Meeker, Ella (? Oct 1905)

Married at Los Angeles, Cal., Oct ?, Mrs. Ella Meeker of Chicago and Col. Theodore D. Kanouse of Los Angeles. Both are well known in Wisconsin and the latter will probably be remembered by many of the older inhabitants of Fairchild. The Los Angeles Times says:

“Mr. and Mrs. Kanouse are both former residents of Dane county, Wisconsin and were friends in their younger days thirty years ago each left the old home ? by different paths, not to meet again until a few years ago at Pasadena, their marriage being the little romance in conclusion.

“Col. Kanouse is a man of broad culture and strong personality.

“He is a national figure as a temperance worker and has lectured extensively throughout the United States. He led in the Good Templer movement a quarter of a century ago, was Grand Worthy Chief Templar of the world, once a prohibition candidate for governor of Wisconsin, polling the heaviest vote ever polled by a prohibition candidate in that state, was later warden of the state penitentiary of Dakota, and figured prominently in the division of the Dakotas, and for many years has been closely identified with both temperance work and in Grand Army circles in California having been at the head of both organizations. He is at present one of the city officials of Los Angeles."
