The marriage of Mrs. Lillian McKlveen, of DeKalb, to Mr. Edwin H. Sharp, of Leon, was one of general interest throughout the county as both are so well and favorably known. The news reached the JOURNAL office just prior to going to press so as to preclude more than a mere announcement of the event. The marriage occurred at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Eals, just west of town, on Wednesday noon, March 29th, Justice C.W. Beck, performing the ceremony. It was entirely private, only Mr. Eals and family being present.
The bride is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. DeKalb, old settlers and among the best people of our county. She is a lady of beauty and attractiveness and is quite accomplished and will make a happy home for the worthy young man who has won her. She has many warm friends who extend heartiest congratulations.
The groom came from Bethany, Missouri, more than sixteen years ago and has made his home in our city ever since. He was in business several years with Aunt Jane Miller on the south side of the square. Several years ago, he was appointed a member of the police force of the U.S. Senate and during his leisure hours, attended law school and graduated with honors. For promptness and efficiency in the performance of his duties, he was promoted to messenger of Col. Hebburn's Interstate Commerce Committee, a position he now holds. He owns a fine farm west of town and also an interest in a large farm in Long Creek Township. Mr. Sharp has practiced law with good success and possesses the ability and energy to make his way successfully in life.
Mr. and Mrs. Sharp have already begun housekeeping in their home west of town. The JOURNAL joins with many friends in wishing them a long life of happiness and prosperity.
