McADAM - COWLES Monday evening, May 31st, 1886, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. T. B. Cowles near Postville, Iowa, their daughter, Miss Jennie, to Mr. William McAdam. Ceremony by Rev. S. T. McKim. The only thing we know against either party, is their departure from the community. Mr. McAdam has made a fortune, and Mrs. McAdam might have done worse. Their future home is to be in western Nebraska. ~Postville Review, Sat., June 5, 1886 - contributor: Reid Johnson
McELROY - HAWKINS Married at Milwaukee, on the 13th, by Rev. Mr. Walker, T.H. McElroy, Esq. of the Waukon (Iowa) Transcript, to Miss Ellen F. Hawkins, of Milwaukee. Our brother of the Transcript called to see us yesterday, on his way to Waukon, with his new partner. We are not a bit surprised at Mc's marriage - it will be remembered that he has copied and composed a column of poetry a week for the last three months, and when you see such signs as these, you can bet that the victim designs to get a wife of his own soon, or run away with some other man's. We welcome the Wisconsin transplant to the soil of Iowa. May she appreciate "the freedom of the press!" ~Weekly North Iowa Times, McGregor, Iowa, Wednesday, November 16, 1859; pg 2
McADAM - MOTT At the home of the bride in Postville, Dec. 3rd, 1878, by Rev. G.W. PRATT, Mr. Jas. McADAM and Miss Mary A. MOTT, all of Postville, Iowa. The Review was kindly remembered with a bountiful supply of rich cake for which the happy couple have our most sincere thanks. The union is more than ordinarily felicitous and happy. Both the contracting parties have been long and favorably known to Postville society, and it is no flattery to say that they have always stood at the head of that society. Anything that we could say would not add to the estimation in which they are held by those who have known them much longer and more intimately than we have. In each of their spheres they have maintained a position seldom equalled and never excelled. In all the varied relations of life they may be safely held up as models for the young ladies and gentlemen of our country. Such a union of hearts and hands must be a pride to the relatives and a gratification to the friends. It is the humble wish of the Review
that the storms of life may be tempered to them and all that measure of happiness possible in a world of care may be theirs to enjoy. Bon voyage. ~Postville Review, December 7, 1878 - contributor: S. Ferrall
