Darlington, Feb 2 – Romance that began 50 years ago in the school days of the participants, culminated this week in Cincinnati when Mrs. Amanda Langdon of that city became the bride of John Marsh of Darlington.  Mr. Marsh and his present wife were lovers way back in those “dear old golden rule days,” but they became separated, Marsh enlisted in the army when the civil war broke out and at its close came to Darlington so that the school day sweethearts knew not whither the winds of fortunate and fate had wafted the other. Marsh came to Darlington in the late 60s and worked for John Peterson of Potato Creek, finally marrying Miss Julia Peterson who died a few years ago, leaving her husband with several children. Soon after the death of his wife, Mr. Marsh visited his old home in Cincinnati and there he found Amanda, the queen of his boyhood’s heart. She, like Marsh, had lost by death her mate and a bond of mutual sympathy drew them together.  The old flame of love flickered once again and finally burst forth and burned with the same impetuosity that it did half a century ago when John carried Amanda’s school books and wrote surreptitious love notes to her. Wednesday these childhood lover, reunited after many years, were married at Cincinnati and left soon after the ceremony for a wedding journal to California and other points on the Pacific coast. They wll return in a few weeks and after a visit with Mrs. Marsh’a daughter, Mrs. Clint Arnold of this place will probably make their home in Cincinnati. - kbz
