Elkader Argus, Wed., 11 June 1902. Volga column, (extracted from a longer article)

A very pretty wedding occurred Wednesday at half past eight in the morning at the Presbyterian Church, which united two of Volga's prominent young people, Ernest Pardee and Eva Hawthorne as husband and wife. Rev. McCuskey officiating the ceremony, and Stephen Davis serving as best man and Miss Taylor, of Chicago, accompanied the bride.

After the ceremony the bridal party accompanied by the relatives and intimate members of the families proceeded to the home of the bride's aunt, Mrs. W. Smith, where a wedding breakfast was served.

After congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Pardee left for a trip in the western part of the state and Des Moines, where Mr. Pardee graduates from Drake University and then to their home at Pocahontas where Mr. Pardee is pastor of the Christian church.

The bride is the only child of Jas. Hawthorne and was born and reared here. The bride and groom's lives have been thrown together, both of the same class and graduated together in our high school.

Those present from abroad were Frank Coleman and wife, of Westgate, Mr. Roe and wife, of Arlington, and Lottie Taylor and Stephen Davis, of Des Moines.
