Miss Mary Niehus and Barney Determan (sic-Deitermann) were married at St. Mary's church in
Remsen on Tuesday by Rev. Father Fisch. They will shortly go to South Dakota
and _eate on a farm near Bonesteel.
On Tuesday morning, January twenty-sixth, Mr. Barney Deitermann and Miss Mary Niehus marched to the altar in St. Mary’s church in Remsen, and there, after having received through the office of Rev. Father Fisch, the blessings of the mother church, were pronounced husband and wife. The ceremony was witnessed by a large number of relatives and friends of the contracting parties, and the hearts of all were open for good wishes for the future well of the young couple.
The bride was beautifully attired in a dress of white silk, and her sister, Miss Katie Niehus, who acted as maid of honor, appeared in light blue, while the groom and his attendant, Henry Deitermann, wore the usual black. After the ceremony a reception was held at the home of Mrs. Niehus, mother of the bride, and a sumptuous wedding dinner was partaken of.
The young couple will be with relatives in this neighborhood for a short time, after which they will go to live on the farm which papa B. Deitermann has ready for them near Bonesteel, South Dakota. The bride and groom are of the best families in the vicinity. They are highly respected, and innumerable good wishes accompany them to their new home.
