1897 Loveland Reporter, May 20, 1897, Pg 1, Column 5 - SPOTTS--BARNES - Last Wednesday eveningFrank Spotts and Miss Lizzie Barnes were united in matrimonial bounds by Rev. J. C. Gullette.Everyone who is interested know the couple each of whom have many friends and no enemies.
This the culmination of a long courtship - a courtship disproving the old adage that "True love never runs smooth" - for theirs has been one free from petty spites and quarrels:and now they are happily wed the reporter and the public generally wish them the best happiness in the market.
For the present the couple will reside with the wife's parents - but in the near future a new cottage will be erected and the doorplate will say SPOTTS.
