The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa Saturday, January 17, 1880
Only nine marriage licenses issued by our County Clerk in the month of December last. The number is so insignificant that we are ashamed of both sexes on account of it, yet in hope that in the future they will do better -- or worse, we will give the solemn list of 'victims' for that month:
MR. FRED A. SCHOTTE, age 26 yrs. to MISS CLO O. BOYD, age 21 yrs.
MR. H.F. WALTON, age 29 yrs. to MISS MATTIE MAUK, age 23 yrs.
MR. J.O. SHARPE, age 22 yrs. to MISS JENNIE MCKELLIP, age 16 yrs.
MR. PARIS J. WINSOR, age 27 yrs. to MISS OLIVE A. LODGES, age 19 yrs.
