Matrimonial News from the Aughts

Miss Frances Walling, daughter of Albert Walling, a prominent nurseryman, living near Oswego, and Leonard Hallinan, of the same place were married at the residence of the bride’s parents on Monday evening last. (Hillsboro Independent, June 22, 1906)

James Glandon and Miss Janette Jacks were married December 20 at 201 Eleventh street, the resident of the pastor of the White Temple. Dr. J. Whitcomb Brougher performed the ceremony. (Oregon Daily Journal, December 23, 1906)

The young people gave Mr. and Mrs. John Clemans a great send-off Thursday afternoon when they took the train for Peru. Their trunks were decorated with such suggestive placards as “Mr. and Mrs. Newlyweds;” “Just Married,” etc. On the groom’s back was pinned a paper informing the public in large letters that “We’re just married, we are.” The young couple were showered with rice until the train pulled out. (Nebraska Advertiser, December 27, 1907)
