August 16, 1916

Married in Council Bluffs.

Two Corning young people, Miss Helene Kees and Russell Baker, gave their friends quite a surprise last week when they were quietly married in Council Bluffs. The ceremony took place Monday, August 7, 1916, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Vic P. Gay, in Council Bluffs, Mrs. Gay being an aunt of the bride. Rev. C. S. Hauley, of Shenandoah, was the officiating clergyman.

Miss Kees is the eldest daughter of John Kees, of our city. She has been a resident here for some years and is well known in the community. The groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Baker, of this city. He was born and raised here and has a large acquaintance. He is from one of Corning’s best families.

The young people were accompanied to Council Bluffs by Miss Lucile Kees and Otis Kees, brother and sister of the bride, who were witnesses at the wedding. Mr. and Mrs. Baker have returned to Corning and are at home for the present with the brid’s [bride’s] father. In the spring they expect to locate on a farm four miles north of Corning.

Friends are extending congratulations and best wishes to the young couple.
