Miss Mary A. Franklin and Henry F. Groetken Are United in Marriage in the Presence of Many Relatives and Friends in this City
St. Joseph 's church was the scene of a pretty wedding yesterday morning when Henry F. Groetken led to the altar his bride, Mary A. Franklin. The service was celebrated by Rev. Father F.X. Feuerstein in the presence of a large number of friends and relatives of the contracting parties.
The bride was attended by Miss Mary Groetken , a sister of the bridegroom, and the bridegroom by John F. Franklin, a brother of the bride.
The bride looked charming in a white serge suit trimmed in moraine silk, a white Milan straw hat with white silk drape and gloves to match completing the effect of the costume. The bridesmaid was gowned in a white serge suit trimmed in appliqué.
Following the service at the church the young couple was escorted to the depot by a large number of friends, where they and their attendants boarded the early morning train for Sioux City , and partook of a wedding breakfast at the Hotel Martin.
Mr. and Mrs. Groetken are members of well known Plymouth county families and have lived in this neighborhood practically all of their lives.
The bride is the only daughter of Mrs. Susan Franklin, of Seney, and is a popular young woman among her associates and friends. The bridegroom is one of the progressive young farmers of this locality and is a son of Mrs. Mary Groetken , whose farm adjoins LeMars on the north. He has managed the home farm successfully for the past few years and demonstrates his worth and ability.
Following a visit at Creighton, Neb., and Minneapolis, Minn., Mr. and Mrs. Groetken will be at home to their friends on the Groetken place after April 20th. Their many friends extend sincere congratulations for the future welfare and happiness.
