LeMars Sentinel, December 6, 1910:
A very pretty home wedding occurred on Thursday afternoon, December
1st, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. John Dempster in Stanton township, when
their daughter, Lizzie Fern, was united in marriage with John Elbridge
Smith, of Correctionville. A number of friends were invited to witness
the ceremony, which took place at three o'clock, Rev. W. G. Taylor, of
the Free Methodist church, of this city, officiating. Following
congratulations, a sumptuous repast was served at four o'clock and the
later afternoon and evening was spent in celebrating the happy union.
The young people received a large number of beautiful and useful gifts.
The bride is a popular young woman, who has grown from childhood to
beautiful womanhood in this vicinity, and by graces of person and mind
has endeared herself with a large circle of friends.
The groom is one of the progressive and prosperous young farmers of
the West, well liked by his associates.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith will go to housekeeping on a farm near O'Leary.
