Shell-Tygert Wedding, 1921

From the July 21, 1921 Skidmore News, page 1:


Miss Anna Shell and Henry Tygert were married at Maryville at the M. E. South parsonage by the Rev. F. J. Mapel, on Saturday, July 16, at 5 o’clock. Mr. and Mrs. H. D. Mitchell accompanied them and witnessed the ceremony.

The bride is a niece of Edward Bosley, and has made her home with them for several years. She is quite well and favorably known here. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Tygert of Aldrich, Mo., and a brother of Mrs. Jesse Linville, east of town.

After spending a week or two with relatives here they will go to Kansas City for a week, then to Aldrich, Mo., where they will make their home on the groom’s farm.

Mr. and Mrs. Harry D. Mitchell entertained a charivari crowd at their home Saturday night in honor of the bridal couple. The house was beautifully decorated with home grown flowers. Ice cream and cake were served by Mrs. Mitchell, assisted by Mrs. W. A. James.

The crowd gathered at the home of Mrs. W. C. Linville and marched very quietly down and surrounded the house. Then began the usual charivari noise before the young couple knew anyone was near. But from the quantity of bon-bons, chewing gum and cigars the bridegroom had provided, it was evident that he anticipated something of the kind. The bride was the recipient of several nice presents.

A very enjoyable evening was spent and all left wishing the young people a long and happy life.

Those present were: Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Dewitt and children, Ross, Robert, Harlin Woodrow and Gladys; Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Pfeiffer and daughter, Martha; Mr. and Mrs. Pete Imboden and children, Marie and Verne; Mrs. W. C. Linville and grandson, Oren Linville; Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Linville; Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Linville and son, Logan; Mr. and Mrs. W. A. James and children, Berman, Joe, William and Wilma; George Owens, the guests of honor and the host and hostess and children, Dwight and Bobby.
