Editor Campbell Gets Married

A short time before, the 1901 Skidmore Standard had announced the resignation of its editor, F. N. Campbell.  The plot thickened in the very next column (February 15, 1901, page 1, column 2):

Word was received here, Thursday, that F. N. Campbell and Miss Anna Medsker were married at the home of Rev. E. L. Robison, in Louisiana, Mo. on Wednesday at noon.  We are unable to give particulars.


The Standard was unable to give particulars, but the Louisiana Press and Elsberry Democrat were, and the results were reprinted in the March 1 edition of the Standard:


Frank N. Campbell and Miss Anna Medsker, of Skidmore Mo. were united in marriage at the parsonage of the First M. E. church Wednesday morning.  Rev. E. L. Robison, officiating.  Miss Medsker is a sister of Mrs. Robison and Mr. Campbell has been for about three years editor of the Skidmore Standard. They will make their home near New Hope, Lincoln county, this state. — Louisiana Press.

Mr. Campbell arrived in Elsberry Saturday and his bride followed two days later and they are now spending their honeymoon at his father’s home near New Hope.  He informed the Democrat that he would possibly remove to Elsberry to reside.  We would gladly welcome him and his young wife as citizens and neighbors of our town. — Elsberry Democrat.
