BURRIGHT-LATHAM -- On Tuesday, March the 19th, 1899 occurred the marriage of Mrs. EACY BURRIGHT to Mr. MINTA E. LATHAM. The happy event took place at Clarion,. Wright Co., Iowa, after which the bridal pair left on a brief wedding tour for the east, expecting to be at home to their friends at their new home on a farm of the groom near Mason City on April 1st. The bride will be remembered by Belle Plaine people as Miss Eacy Tatman when she resided here with her mother Mrs. Mary Jane Tatman a dozen years ago. About that time she was married to a Mr. Burright, a young railroad man of this place with whom she lived most happily for a brief year or so when death entered their home and took from her the partner of her joys and sorrows. Since that time she has devoted her time mostly to the work of a telephone girl beginning with the Belle Plaine telephone company which first started up in business here about that time. She continued in the work here a couple of years and then went to the western part of the state to live. For the last two years she has made her home at Dows, Iowa, during which time she was chief operator for the telephone company of that place. Her service was eminently satisfactory, her salary was increased from time to time. The groom is a farmer and is said to be well fixed financially and is in every way worthy of the one whose fate for life with his is joined. Mrs. Burright was in the employ of the Democrat Herald for about three months during the past winter and the office force here joins in the congratulations of her many friends.

{Submitter comment: Eacy Tatman Burright was my grand-aunt, the daughter of John Wesley Tatman and Mary Jane nee Freeman. Mary Jane was the daughter of Patrick Henry Freeman and Rachel nee Greenlee.}
