FIRST WEDDING IN HALF CENTURY
ONLY MARRIAGE CEREMONY IN CRATHORNE CHURCH IN PAST FIFTY YRS

A special from Hawarden says: The Little Brown church at Nashua may
have its record for the large number of marriages performed within its
walls, but the First Presbyterian church, in Plymouth county, about
thirteen miles south of Hawarden, has a record that is far more
interesting.

The marriage of Miss Merna Douglas, of this city, to Lambert Jeffers,
Akron, which was solemnized in the church, was the first wedding
performed in that church in more than fifty years. The ceremony was
performed by the pastor of the church, Rev. W.E. Smith. The couple will
make their home on a farm in the vicinity of the church.
