Wedded Wednesday

Yagerlehner, Wilson - 1899-11-16WEDDED WEDNESDAY

Wilson Yagerlehner and Miss Alice M. Hess were united in marriage at 7 o’clock Wednesday evening at the parsonage of the West Jefferson Street Church of Christ. Rev. P. J. Rice was the officiating minister, and a few close friends of the bride and groom witnessed the ceremony. A reception at the home of the bride, on Elizabeth street, followed, and many friends called to offer congratulations. Mr. Yagerlehner is an electrician in the employ of Hattersley & Sons, and both he and his bride are highly esteemed young people with a wide circle of friends.

    I wonder why they were married in the parsonage instead of the church.

    Nice touch: “both he and his bride are highly esteemed young people with a wide circle of friends.” 🙂
