Decatur County Journal Thursday, February l0, l9l6
Thursday, January 27th, at Mt. Ayr, Rev. Fr. Burkhiser officiating, MR. RALPH DAUGHTON and MISS HELEN HUKILL were united in marriage.
The wedding was a very quiet one, there being MRS. TAPSCOTT, of Lamoni, and DEON DAUGHTON, brother and sister of the groom, being waiters, and MRS. JAS. CAIN was also present.
These young people were born and brought up in and near Grand River and the only thing that we have ever heard to their discredit was they had kept company for so long that people began to think that they would never get married.But jokes aside, if a fellow were to hunt the state over he could not find a better couple, nor one that were better married.
The bride is the daughter of MRS. HIRAM HUKILL, has been in the employ of E.A. Evans as head clerk for seven or eight years and has an acquaintance that reaches far beyond that of the ordinary lady, and all who know her admire her for her kind disposition and lady-like manners.
RALPH is one of the Irish boys of the community, which to our mind is one of the best things we can say, as these people pride themselves in their manly behavior and as a rule keep fully up to their claim.He has been a practicing auctioneer for years and by his industry and frugality has laid aside enough of this world's goods to begin life. They will be at home on the JAMES DAUGHTON farm west of town, after March lst.
The Local joins their host of friends in wishing them long life and unalloyed happiness. --GRAND RIVER LOCAL.
