The Vinton Eagle; Jan. 11, 1921
Jan. 8, 1921

Well Known Couple Married Saturday Eve

Harold Miller and Miss Marietta Stewart were quietly married Saturday evening at eight o'clock at the home of the bride's mother, Mrs. Sarah Stewart. The ceremony was performed by Rev. J. Arthur Young, of the Methodist church, and was witnessed by only the members of the immediate families. Following the ceremony refreshments were served by Mrs. Stewart.

Both these young people are well known in Vinton. The bride came here a few years ago from Reinbeck. She graduated from the local high school and later taught school. During the past several months she has been bookkeeper for the Iowa Canning Co., and she completed her work there the last of the week. She is a splendid young lady, with all the qualifications that make the true wife and helpmate.

The groom is the second son of Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Miller, and was born and reared in this city. During the past few years he has been associated with his father in the Vinton Canning Co. He graduated from the Vinton high school in 1912, and later attended Western Military Institute at Alton, Ill., from which he also graduated. Following his graduation there he attended Coe college, and later took a business course in the School of Commerce, Chicago. He is one of Vinton's finest young men, and has a host of friends whose congratulations will be extended.

Mr. and Mrs. Miller left Saturday night for Chicago, where they expected to remain for a week. They will go to housekeeping March 1st on the farm owned by the groom's father just east of Evergreen cemetery.

Mr. and Mrs. Miller planned that their friends should not know of the wedding until they were gone, and did not secure their license until about 7:30 o'clock Saturday evening, but their plans miscarried and a crown of young folks were ready to charivari them and see them on the train Saturday night. However while their friends were waiting, they made their getaway and left on schedule time. Having been fooled the friends will doubtless be ready to welcome them home.
