Abraham, Elsie (11 Jul 1906)

A Beautiful German Wedding

Rev. H Kettler, pastor of the Minot Germen Luthern Church Weds Miss Elsie Abraham, one of Ward County’s Fairest Daughters

Miss Elsie Abraham, daughter of Wm. Abraham, from south of Minot, formerly of Fairchild, Wis., was united in marriage at the Lutheran Synod church in Minot at 10:30 o’clock Wednesday morning to Rev. H. Kettler, in the presence of a very large crowd of friends and relatives. The church was beautifully decorated with potted plants and ferns for the occasion and the couple stood beneath an arch of flowers while the minister pronounced the words which united for life two of the most popular young people of the county.

Rev. A. Rubbert of Kramer, N.D., performed the ceremony.

The couple were attended by Rev. Theo. Evers of Medina, N.D., Frank Miller of Minot, and the bride’s sisters, Misses Matilda and Frances Abraham.

Miss Winnifred Voght played the wedding march in a most beautiful manner.

Immediately after the ceremony the guests repaired t the bride’s home south of town where a sumptuous wedding dinner was served.

The couple received many valuable presents.

The bride is one of the most popular young ladies of the county. She came unto prominence last winter, she being one of the winners in the Independent’s piano-diamond ring contest. She is an accomplished young woman, being especially adept in the art of music.

The groom is pastor of the German Lutheran church in this city and has eight charges in this part of the state to look after. He is one of the hardest workers of any of the clergymen and is making his mark. The Independent extends its best wishes to this worthy couple. – Minot Independent.

The bride resided here about two and one half years ago and her many friends here will be pleased to learn of her marriage and to extend congratulations.
