Grant – Rees

From the December 22, 1899 Skidmore Standard, page 8:

Ed Rees is a Benedict.

Edwin L. Rees, of Burlington Junction, was married last week to Miss Margaret M. Grant, of Decatur, Illinois.  The bride is a charming young lady and already has a large number of friends in Burlington Junction as she was a resident of that prosperous little city several years ago. Mr. Rees spent several years of his boyhood near Skidmore and is therefore well known to many of our readers.  He is now engaged in the lumber and grain business.

The happy couple passed through here on the passenger, Saturday evening, en route home.  We congratulate.
