"Waterloo Daily Courier" [Waterloo, Black Hawk Co., IA], Tuesday, 21 Feb 1899:

NEVER TOO OLD TO WED.
Bride of 75 and Groom of 74 Made Happy by Justice Mears.

Justice John A. Mears performed a marriage ceremony this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. The contracting parties were Mrs. Clarinda Colvin, of La Porte City, and Calvin Adams, of Cedar Falls. The bride is 75 years of age and the groom is 74, but when they left the office of the justice they were cooing as happily as a boy and girl of 16.
Note: The first husband of Clarinda [aka Clorinda] Colvin, nee Potter, was Alvah Jeremiah Colvin.
