LeMars Sentinel, Friday, December 19, 1902, Page 1, Column 6:
The home of J. Burwell, residing near Ruble, was the scene of wedding festivities in which a large number of invited guests participated on Wednesday evening. The occasion was the wedding of his daughter, Mattie (sic--Maggie), to Mr. Frank Jeffers. The ceremony took place at 8 o'clock and was performed by Rev. Chew, of the united Brethren church. The home was beautifully decorated with evergreens, carnations and roses and the bridal couple entered the spacious parlors where the guests were assembled to the strains of the wedding march played by a sister of the bride, Miss Nellie Burwell. The young couple were attended by Miss Anna Jeffers and Mr. Irving (sic--Irvin) Boyer.
After the words were pronounced which made the young couple man and wife, congratulations were extended and an elegant wedding dinner was served and the wedding gayieties (sic--gayeties) extended far into the night. About fifty guests were present and enjoyed a royal time. The guests from a distance were Mrs. Chase, of Storm Lake, a sister of the bride and Mr. and Mrs. Newton Jeffers of LeMars. The bride is a charming young lady who has a large circle of friends. She has taught school for a number of terms and is possessed of many accomplishments. Mr. Jeffers is one of Plymouth county's progressive young farmers and very popular.
The young people will live on the farm owned by John Ruble, near the thriving village of the same name.
