Mr. Moses Jones of Dana and Miss Sally Canine of Waveland were quietly married at Crawfordsville on Wednesday evening Sept 9.  The wedding was a quiet one and only a few of Mose’s friends here knew it was going to take place, however the word had gained wide circulation before Friday evening and quite a crowd of friends met them at the evening train. The bride is the beautiful daughter of JC Canine a well-to-do farmer and dealer in horses and mules who has become well known in this section and has many friends here.  The groom has for the past three years been a member of the implement firm of Jones & Co and is considered one of Dana’s most successful business men, who we feel safe in saying has as many friends and few enemies than any man in town. They will make their home for the present with Mr. Jones’ parents on West B Street – Dana News.
