Cresco Boy Weds an Eastern Belle.
An announcement of the marriage on 5th, following his graduation on June 4th from the Annapolis Naval Academy, of Ensign Edouard Victor Isaacs, U. S. N., and Miss Agnes Elmer Cabell has been received here and will be of interest to the many friends of Ensign Isaacs in this section.
The marriage was solemnized in the historic and picturesque St. Mary's church of Annapolis, Md., during a nuptial mass solemnized by Rev. Father Barron. The church occupies the site of the old Carroll plantation, part of the estate left to a Catholic order of priests by the renowned Charles Car- roll of Carrolltown, one of America's greatest patriots. An interesting coincident in connection with the marriage being solemnized at this church is that the bride is directly descended from the Carrolls of Carrolltown, belonging to that branch known as the Cabells of Virginia. She is a daughter of Lieut. Col. and Mrs. de Rosey Carroll Cabell of the 10th U. S. Cavalry, and on her mother’s side traces her ancestry back to Daniel Boone, the Kentucky patriot. Her grandmother, widow of the late Col. Otis, U. S. A. was a grandniece of Daniel Boone. Mr. Isaacs is a son of Mr. and Mrs. B. Isaacs of Cresco, and his forbears are an old French family of Alsace-Lorraine and his family are among the early pioneers of Cresco.
He was graduated from the United States Naval Academy on June 4th, with credit. During his four years at the academy he was prominent in athletics, maintained a high average in scholarship and held the command of the L. 1st company.
The wedding was a brilliant affair attended by a number of naval officers in full uniform. A reception followed and after a tour of the Blue Ridge country, Ensign Isaacs and bride will reside at Philadelphia, the port of the battleship Kansas, to which he is attached. —Dubuque Telegraph.
