Foster, George & Miss Mary Lancaster, Jul 1898

Dated July 28, 1898

SENEY: (Special Correspondence) Last week one day Geo. Foster and Mary Lancaster went to Sioux City ostensibly on a visit, but their real object seems to have been to get married. Sometime after their return they divulged the fact that they had been secretly married while in the city. The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.C. Lancaster, of this place. As she is but sixteen years of age and had not obtained the consent of her parents, the couple presumably used the same tactics as some of the boys did to get into the army. The groom is a railroad man and holds a lucrative position in the Illinois Central yards in Chicago. He spent most of his boyhood with John Lancaster, near this place and is well known here. Mr. Foster left Monday night for Chicago and expects to return and claim his bride in a few months.
