Thomas G. Nixon - Ila J. Reafleng
A wedding of much interest was solemnized Wednesday, October 10, at 3 p.m., in the home of the bride's parent, Mr. and Mrs. Gus Reafleng, of Lyons township.
The two principals in this wedding are well known in the home community. These are Thomas G. Nixon and Miss Ila J. Reafleng. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Ferdinand Seitz in the presence of half a hundred guests, which included relatives and friends.
Following the ceremony and the congratulations a delightful wedding supper was served. We are unable to secure the details of the affair for today's paper.
The groom is a young man who has demonstrated his worthiness as a citizen and one who has attended to his work of farming with zeal and a good measure of success. The bride comes from a family of pioneers in that community, and it is the evidence of her acquaintances that she will prove a splendid helpmate to the man of her choice.
The newly wed will make their home on the Morrow farm, now occupied by the groom, and no doubt those former bachelor quarters will be transformed into a home where it will be evident that woman reigns.
Among the guests from Glenwood were Mr. and Mrs. Ed Jones, Mrs. Thomas Jones, James Thomas and Rev. and Mrs. F. Seitz.
The Tribune joins their many friends in wishing Mr. and Mrs. Nixon many years of happiness and prosperity.
