A wedding occurred on Tuesday in which two Fredonia township’s popular young
people were the contracting parties, uniting by closer ties two prominent
families of that township. The contracting parties were Miss Heissel,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. Heissel, and Mr. Frank Bortscheller, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Henry Bortscheller.

The wedding occurred at St. Joseph’s church on Tuesday morning, rev. Father
J. H. Meis performing the ceremony in the presence of intimate friends and
the relatives of both bride and groom.

After the ceremony the wedding party drove to the Bortscheller home in
Fredonia township where they received the congratulations of friends and
during the afternoon and evening a largely attended wedding party was given
to the bride and groom.

Mr. Bortscheller has leased the home farm of his father and the young people
will wish them every success and blessing in life’s journey.
Transcriber Note:
1900 Federal Census shows wife's first name as: Arosta,age 23.
1910 Federal Census shows wife's first name as: Rosalia, age 33.
It is apparent from the Census data that these two are the same woman.
