Job Rafferty & Fay Wells Marriage 
Rafferty & Wells
In St. Peter's Catholic church Thursday morning , Sept. 6, at - o'clock, occurred the marriage of Miss Fay Wells, aged 18, to Mr. Job Rafferty aged 72, both residence of this city. Rev. Father M.J. Farelly preformed the ceremony and tied the knot so tight that now even Cupid wears that "smile that wont come off."

When it was first noised about that Cupid was stirring up an infatuation between this now happy couple, much interest was aroused in the romance. Some doubted others made prophesies while some cried impossible, but Miss Fay is now Mrs. John Rafferty, and while there is a difference in age, that true, ever devoted and long enduring love will easily bridge over the difference.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Wells of this place, who have resided in Clermont for a number of years.  She possesses a personal magnetism that  has drawn to her many friends, who join with us in wishing her much happiness in her new relationship and responsibilities.

Mr. Rafferty has lived in this vicinity for over 40 years and has accumulated a goodly share of this world's goods; is a man of strict integrity and universally respected in the community, and although fairly along in years, this is his first matrimonial venture,  and his many friends wish him many years yet in which to enjoy the companionship of his young wife
