We celebrate the hearts and flowers of Valentines Day and warm the cold light of February by recalling weddings from years past.  Today’s comes from the November 18, 1898 Skidmore Standard, pages 4 and 5:


Once again the impressive words are said and two hearts are joined together for better or worse, for weal or woe.  On Thursday, Nov. 15, Mr. W. R. Joel of near Skidmore, and Miss Jennie Ford of Maryville were united in marriage at the bride’s home in that city.  The young couple went to housekeeping immediately on Mr. Joel’s farm, southwest of town.  The STANDARD congratulates.

Married:  Mr. William Joel to Miss Jennie Ford, at Maryville, Tuesday, November 15.  They are moving onto their new farm lately purchased of J. W. Hutchison.  We welcome them to the Valley and wish for them a long and happy life.
