Wedding bells from July 1909, as reported in the August 5, 1909 edition of the Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:


Saturday, July 31, 1909, Dr. Roy Morgan and Miss Anna Albright were united in marriage in the parlor of the Henshaw House, at Clarinda, Iowa.  Rev. Abel, pastor of the 1st M. E. church of that city, spoke the words that solemnized the union.

The young couple took the train Saturday morning for Clarinda, and only their most intimate friends knew at that time of their intended marriage.  They returned Sunday evening to the home of the bride’s mother, with whom they will make their home for the present.

The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Anna Albright of Skidmore, and was born and reared in this part of the county.  She is a young lady of many graces of mind and person, who is capable of filling the home she will adorn with happiness and will prove an agreeable companion to the husband she has chosen to honor with her hand.

The groom is the son of a well known citizen of Oregon, Mo., where he was reared to manhood.  He is a graduate of the St. Joseph Veterinary college and is now practicing his profession in Skidmore, making his office in the Model Drug Co.  He is one of the substantial young men of the country and will make his mark as a worthy son of honorable parents.

The congratulations on the happy event are numerous and The New Era is pleased on this occasion to add its hearty good wishes to those being so freely extended.
