Elmer MARSH - Ollie MILLS

Source: Crawfordsville Daily Journal Saturday 3 Dec 1892

The elopement of Elmer Marsh and Miss Ollie Mills is still fresh in mind and the affair is again being discussed thoroughly on account of the unlooked for and rather remarkable reunion of Mr. and Mrs. Marsh. After the elopement, Mrs. Marsh took rooms on North Green Street, furnished them elegantly and proceeded to lead a life of love lorn loneliness. She still loved the erring Elmer, however, and a life size crayon sketch of the frivolous young man hung in her parlor. Several days ago her smiles brightened perceptibly and to a few confidential friends she stated that she had received a letter from her wandering husband full of love and repentance. In this remarkable epistle he made no mention of Miss Mills, but declared to his wife that he still loved her with the fervor of his youth and that life without her sweet companionship would be a barren waste. The tender sentiments of the epistle were backed up by a ten dollar bill and a request that Mrs. Marsh hasten at once to him in St. Louis, where a glorious and never ending reunion would occur.

Mrs. Marsh fairly hopped with joy and night before last accompanied by an extremely gallant and polite young man, she went to the Vandalia station, where bidding her escort a tender farewell, she departed for St. Louis. Last night, she, Elmer, and Ollie Mills all came back to Crawfordsville as happy as a cage of monkeys. Elmer and wife are now at home to their friends in Mrs. Marsh’s suite of rooms and Miss Mills is at home with her mother near the Plum Street station.
This morning Mrs. Marsh, whose joy is of the exuberant kind, related her experiences to a friend. She arrived in St. Louis as sound as a dollar and was met at the station by Elmer who fell on her neck and wept. After the usual preliminary greetings and caresses, he asked her to go home with him. She did so and was surprised on arriving at his rooms to find Miss Ollie Mills fast asleep. The quarters were not at all clean, but ashes and dirt prevailed to an alarming extent. Mrs. Marsh states that she at once told Elmer that he didn’t find things so while she kept house for him and during the interview Miss Ollie awoke and while greatly surprised, was glad to see her. The whole party came home last night and the Marshes will leave this place as soon as possible.
While away, Marsh worked at all sorts of things in Chicago. The sooner Marsh leaves Crawfordsville the better. A year ago he was a young man with good reputation and fine prospects. He had a good business opening and all seemed bright, but his bad break has eternally blasted his name here.

Maggie McDANIEL - Dick SMITH - elope

Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal Thursday, Thursday, 28 August 1873
Ladoga has had a sensation. Mr. Dick Smith, a prominent shoe merchant of that place, wooed and won a fair lady by the name of Maggie McDaniel. “True love never did run smooth.” And so it was in this case. The lady’s parents objected to the match, from some cause or other, and placed obstacles in the way of the young couple which it seemed almost impossible to overcome. “Love laughs at locksmiths,” and subsequent developments that the twain were equal to the emergency. Suddenly the young lady conceived a desire to visit friends in Crawfordsville, and her parents, probably thinking the visit would cause her to forget the object of her girlish affections, reluctantly consented, and about ten days ago she arrived in the city, visiting Mrs. Fannie Townsley, an intimate friend, to whom she confided her story, and in a short time she had the sympathy of a number of young ladies, who “knew how it was themselves.” Early last Monday morning our hero, the seller of brogans, might have been seen, in the disguise of a hunter, wending his way out through the suburbs of Ladoga, into the country, at length coming cautiously out into the road. A rumbling noise is heard in the distance, and away down the road may be seen a covered carriage coming at a frightful speed. “All right, Funk?” “All right! Jump in!” And this is the last that is seen of Smith until he arrives at Crawfordsville, where he exchanges his hunter’s garb for a suit of broadcloth, proceeds to the residence of Mr. Ed. Townsley, where—well, we all know how it ended. Rev. S. Beck officiated. The happy couple returned home the same day, and had a reception, according to previous arrangement, in the evening at the hotel. We forgive them. - kbz

Flora, Ind Jan 7 – About three months ago Henry McDonald, aged 93, and Mrs. Rosetta (Mc) Daniels aged 87 of this city were married. The courtship was rather a stormy one. After marriage the honeymoon was no more placid that the courtship had been.  Mrs. McDonald was jealous and frequent quarrels disturbed their otherwise serene atmosphere. Mrs. McDonald gathered up her belongings and left, remarking as she departed that when a man arrived at the age of 93 it was time for him to stop flirting and settle down.   (Krout maiden name)

The evening of Oct 11th was a gala day with the young people of this vicinity.  (Orange Blossoms) Elder OP Badger at your city, who, by the way is the universal favorite among the young folks as a marriagist, preached to a very great concourse of people, old and young, in our church at 11 a.m. and 6  p.m. after which precisely at 15 minutes to 7 o’clock, eight very finely dressed young people, four ladies and four gentlemen, were seen pushing their way up the densely crowded aisles. The ladies were all so fine looking, that words of comparison would be invidious. The bridesmaids were dressed in pure white, while the brides wore the popular stone-colored silks, with head-dresses of small white flowers. The Elder greeted them with a polite bow, and proceeded to station them to the best advantage, after which he introduced the ceremonies of this very interesting occasion with a few well timed  remarks and a beautiful prayer. He then turned to Mr. Willis Stevens and Miss Emma C. Grantham and consummated the marriage rite in a most impressive manner; he then turned to Mr. Jerry Miller and Miss Cora A. Utterback, and they were soon made one, after which the benediction was pronounced; and while the bridal parties moved with measured step to the doors, the vast audience sat and gazed in mute silence. Soon the happy pairs and their many friends were whirling away to the residence of Elder Thomas Stevens, ¼ of a mile distant, where a sumptuous repast of good things was waiting for them. Truly, “All went merry as a marriage bell,” until a late hour and here I took leave of the happy throng and hied me to my house for repose.  Exit – Fort Red, Ind Oct 12, 1881.  – note: the article says he married four couples but only two are mentioned so not sure !

A secret wedding always presents a romantic side. This is especially so when the parties are well known and highly respected. Secret marriages will leak out, however, in a short time. It is too good to keep. The Reporter to-day reveals a secret of this kind. On the night February 23. a few persons, previously sworn to secrecy, assembled at the home of Mrs. Charlotte McCann, immediately north of the city, and there beheld the impressive ceremony that made William C. Miller, of Montgomery county and Miss May Miles of Boone county, husband wife. Rev. W. H. Ashley was let into the secret and was present and at 7:30 performed the ceremony. The license was secured secretly and all was done without the least cause for suspicion. After congratulations had been offered by the ten persons who were present, Mrs. McCann conducted her guests to the dining room, where a bountiful and elegant repast was served.
After spending pleasant evening the guests departed as secretly as the came, the newly married couple returned to their respective homes, and the fact has been proven that ten persons have kept the secret for two weeks. Miss May Miles is the charming and accomplished daughter of Lao Miles, postmaster at Cason. She is well known here, where she numbers her friends by the full number of her acquaintances. Mr. Miller is a farmer of Montgomery county who has learned the true secret of successful farming. He is well and favorably known here as well as in his own community, being a cousin of ex-Sheriff Joseph S. Miller. Mr. and Mrs. Miller will go to housekeeping at once on their own farm near Shannondale.

Owen David MORRIS - Delilah and Nancy CORY

"Owen David Morris and Nancy Cory were married on November 28, 1839 in Ohio.  Her father's farm joined that of his father.  They were young people in the same neighborhood.  After they were married, they set out with a team and wagon and a few articles to begin house keeping and a few implements for farm work.  Their destination was Indiana.  Several weeks were required for the trip of some 125 miles through wilderness.  When night came and a site was chosen near a stream to make camp.  Often sapling had to be cut from the side of the trail to make a suitable camp space.  They located in Delaware County, Indiana.  On May 8, 1949 Nancy Cory died, and the young father took his four young children back to Ohio and they were cared for in the homes of both sets of grandparents.  On December 16, 1849 in Ohio, Owen married Delilah C. Cory, the younger sister of Nancy C. Cory and began life again. Nancy and Delilah were the daughters of John E. and Mary Knight Cory.
In 1854/5 he sold this farm and migrated across country with an oxen team and his family by way of Buck Creek in southwesterly direction to Montgomery County, Indiana, eight miles east of Crawfordsville, Indiana, where he purchased 220 acres of fine sugar tree land.  
Set up house keeping --
in an old time log and frame house.  A few years later he erected a commodious brick house.  He molded cut dried and burned the brick necessary for the building.  In 1936 the house was still standing"
