Audubon County Journal, May 23, 1901, page 8, Oakfield-Brayton News, col. 3:
Miss Lottie Mae, the eldest daughter of L. W. Wheatley and wife, of northeast Brighton township, were married yesterday afternonn [sic afternoon ] to H. J. Wegner, of Auburn, Neb., in the presence of a large company of friends and relatives. The ceremony occurred at half past two o'clock, and Mr. and Mrs. Wegner left at seven for Chicago and Milwaukee, where they will visit for two weeks before proceeding to their home in Nebraska.
The Telegraph is more than casually interested and concerned in this happy event for the reason that by a train of circumstances which were set in motion in this office eighteen months ago, the wedding of yesterday transpired. (It is wonderful how much good a newspaper can do in the world) Mr. Wheatley came to the Telegraph office in the fall of 1899 to look at a new engine which had just been installed, and upon the recommendation of the proprietors, cnocluded to buy one like it for his own use. When the new engine came, it was accompanied by Mr. Wegner, who as a machinist, came to set it up and see that it worked properly. He went out to the Wheatley home and met and knew his fate at the supper table the first day. Since then he has looked after that Wheatley engine much more assidiously than he has the one in this office.--Thursday Telegraph.
