Some weeks ago the marriage of J.M. Banta and Mrs. Alonzo Whipps was reported in this paper. We learn from Mrs. Whipps who makes her home with her mother and sister at Erhard, Minn that this marriage did not take place. On inquiry of relatives of Mr. Banta we find that they knew he was married but did not know who he had married and surmised that the bride was Mrs. Whipps. They now are of the opinion that the bride is an Indianapolis lady but have no positive opinion. Mrs. Banta would better get out some announcements.

Ben BLANCHARD - Rilla FISHERO

Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal 30 Nov 1894
 
Miss Rilla Fishero has at last married an actor and will doubtless be seen upon the historionic boards herself in the near future.
 
About a week ago Ben S. Blanchard left the Kelley and Angel Comedy Company at Connersville and made a bee line for Crawfordsville where he put up at the Nutt Home. He was there since Monday. Mr. Blanchard is a young man of about twenty-eight years old and' not a bad looking sort of a chap. Few here knew of his presence and no one his business for he kept it to himself. Did we say no one'.' That is hardly correct. Miss Rilla Fishero, teacher of the primary department in the Alamo schools, knew it and in fact was equally interested. She kept as mum as Kenny, however, and not even her most intimate friends here knew of her intentions when she arrived in town last Saturday. She was met by Mr. Blanchard and they took dinner together at the Nutt House and immediately after Mr. Blanchard ambled gracefully up to the court house and took out a license which entitled himself and Miss Fishero to all the privileges and immunities of married life. They then went off presumably in search of a minister. Mr. Blanchard is a widower. Last February his wife and her mother were burned to death in Cincinnati by an explosion of benzine with which they were cleaning some stage clothes. The bride is a very pretty young lady and is well known all over the city. She has had histrionic aspirations for some time and last Summer was with the Carrie Lamont Company for a few days.
 
Mr. Blanchard was seen at the Nutt House in the afternoon about 3 o'clock just as he was unrolling a lot of new popular songs for the stage. He did not deny the soft impeachment said the ceremony had not yet ocurred. All the arrangements been made, however.
 
 
They went to the residence of R.J.Cunningham at half past three, where the nuptials took place in a very quiet manner. Mr. Blanchard said there was no secret about the affair at all. He declared that the Nutt House folks had known about it for a week. Miss Fishero's mother is not opposed to the match, he says, but the father rather objects because he does not want his daughter to get in the show business. "But that's just where she will be in a very short time," continued Mr. Blanchard. "We will join my company at Logansport on Monday and about three weeks later will go to New York and become a part of the John T. Kelley farce comedy company where my wife will be given a part. She has a pretty voice and will take well I am sure. I sing baritone myself. My wife has not yet resigned her school but will do so Monday if it can be supplied. If not, she will continue for a short time until her successor can. be chosen.'' - kbz

Miss Bessie Breaks, the 18 year old daughter of Rev. and Mrs. James Breaks, figured in a rather sensational elopement this morning. She has been employed as a stenographer in the down town office of the match company and as her parents reside in the country she has been staying with her grandparents (sic) Mr. Henry Connard. This morning she drove up to the office with two young men and going in asked Manager Gregg if she might get off for the day. He replied that they could not well spare her today, whereupon she stated that she had expected to quit shortly and might as well do it then. As she departed Miss Bessie stated that if she wa snot back by 9 o'clock they might understand that she had quit for good and getting inthe buggy again with the young men she drove away. Surmising that the was something up Mr. Gregg notified Henry Connard, her grandfather, who went to the Big FOur station and found the parties. Bessie said she was there simply to tell her friends good-bye but Mr. Connard, like the man from Missouri, wanted to see. When the west bound train rolled in the three climbed on. Mr. Connard caught his granddaughter's arm as she started up the steps but the young man with her demanded he let loose and roughly pushed him aside. He offered no further resistance and the train rolled out with the trio. Mr. Connard is not absolutely certain but he thinks the young man is a Mr. Clark of Indianapolis and that the companion was his brother. The Clarks are related to Mrs. Detchon residing north of the city. Miss Breaks has been intimate with the Detchon family and met young Clark while visitng there some time ago. It is supposed they worked up a case and suddenly decided to elope, although there was no occasion for so doing as the young lady is of age. They were probably married today at Danville, Illinois. - kbz

It was known that the young man, with whom Miss Bessie Breaks ran away last Saturday morning, was Orville Clark, of Indianapolis. He is a son of an Indianapolis contractor is 18 and a lather by trade. He is related to Mrs. Sarah Detchon, rsiding north of the city and with his brother, who is several years senior, spent last Friday night there. Miss Breaks was a guest over night also and Saturday mroning left with the Clark boys for the city. Mrs. Detch states that she had no intimation of their intentions utnil after they had departed when her daughter confided to her that Orville and Bessie were going to run away and get married. The facts concerning their departure are already familiar to our readers. On Saturday evening the groom's brother who rather engineered the elopement, alighted from the Big 4 trainand went to Britton's livery stable where he got the horse and buggy they had left ther ein the morning. The rig belonged, it seems to Mrs. Detchon and it fell to the elder Clark's lot to return it. He stated that the eloping couple were married in Danville and that they went back to Indianapolis on the train from which he alighted. He stated that his brother had their father's consent to get married but that was not enough in this state and for that reason they went on to Illinois. In spite of his story, which is very plausible, there was nothing concerning the affair in the Danville Sunday papers. Nor was the issuance of a license noted, although it is possible that the Argus-eyed reporters may have overlooked it. When Clark landed Saturday evneing a local newspaper man laid seige to him for a story and he got one but it was of the "hot air" variety. He claimed his name was Johnson and that he and his brother had been traveling with the Wallace circus as professional acrobate; that his brother Henry of Urbana, Ohio and Miss Breaks had been married at Indianapolis some time ago and that having quite the show business the brother had come to claim his bride, and that he had come along to render assistance in case of trouble. This is of course all a "fake." In the first place, according to her relatives, Bessie had not been away from the city for months so that it was impossible for her to have been married. Mrs. James Breaks, who is an invalid was prostrated when she learned of her daughter's escapade and for a time her condition was quite alarming, but she is better today. Mr. Clark stated Saturday evneing that her relatives would hear form Bessie in a day or two and that everything would turn out well. He returned to Indianapolis on the excursion Sunday - kbz

Daniel R. Perrine and Emily Ann Brown, residing in the neighborhood of Bowers Station were happily married this morning at the clerk’s office in the presence of a small, but select company. The groom has seen 63 winters and this is his 5th matrimonial venture. The bride is three years his junior and having been married but once before, she was hardly as composed during the ceremony as was the groom. In this respect, however, they had the better of Squire Brewer, but this is accounted for the fact that it was his first experience in the art of know tying since he donned the judicial toga. He adjusted in a very satisfactory manner and was the first to extend felicitations. - transcribed by kbz
