[Research Note:Surnames of ROYL, and SYPRISKI, could have been spelled RAYL, SYPRESKI. First name of CARNER could have been Louis. The handwriting wasn't easy to read. The groom was under age, so a letter of consent was attached to the page with the Marriage Affidavit, and consent was given by both of the goom's parents.]

[Research Note: The bride was under age and there was a note at the bottom of the record in the book that Mrs. Dr. Stowell was the guardian of Verna SYPNESKI, and that she gave her consent for Verna SYPENSKI's marriage to Paul WOERNER. Paul's address was listed as 955 Williams Ave in the Marriage Affidavit Book. Evidently, this was Verna's first marriage and the one you found in Idaho, was probably her 2nd marriage.]

Another volunteer sent you information regarding a newspaper article about Dr.. WOERNER and Verna. Laura found an article about a Dr. Woerner threatening to kill a Miss Vernie Sypneski when she refused to marry him. (March 1910). It looks like Verna had a change of heart by June.
