Iowa Plain Dealer May 11, 1897, LP, C6

A quiet wedding took place at the church of the Immaculate Conception in Elma, Thursday, April 29, 1897, at 8 o’clock a. m. The contracting parties were L. Long and Miss Anna Kratzman, both of Lourdes. Rev. Father Gunn officiated at the ceremonies.
The bride is a beautiful and accomplished daughter of respectable parents, who are engaged in agriculture in the vicinity of Lourdes.
The groom is a man with whom all, or nearly all, our readers are acquainted. A man of considerable wealth, the{sic} which he obtained by honest toil and thrift. Though advanced in years the fire of youth flashes from his eye, and the clasp of his hand shows possession of a mind still replete with hope, friendliness and sanguine aspirations. He has retired from active life and, being possessed of several properties on Busti Avenue has chosen one of them in which to cherish his bride and pass his declining years.
On the evening of the nuptial day the Elma cornet band filed into line and stopped before the street entrance of the residence of the happy couple, where they make the echoes with airs productive of their best efforts. They were of course rewarded with a generous hand, characteristic of the groom in every day life.
To this honest and worthy couple we offer our heartiest congratulations. We wish for them long life and that serene content which comes to those who are happily mated.—Elma News
