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 Skidmore Standard, August 26, 1898, page 1:


Marion Patton and Miss Florance Jones were joined in holy wedlock on Thursday of last week by Rev. Cressap, in Maryville.

Both of the contracting parties are well known in and around Skidmore, and are highly esteemed.

Mr. Patton is a farmer and has taken charge of W. R. Linville’s farm 1 1/2 miles east of town.

The STANDARD wishes them success in life’s battle.
