Wedding news from the October 17, 1912 Skidmore New Era:

Redmon – Gilleland

Garden City Views

At the home of the bride’s parents in this city occurred the marriage of Miss Anna Gilleland and Mr. William Redmon of Tipton, Missouri. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. J. W. Owens in the presence of only the immediate members of the families of the bride and groom.  In the dining room, which was beautifully decorated with autumn leaves, hand-painted china, water color and pastel pictures, all handiwork of the gifted bride, the sacred words were spoken uniting these two young lives.

From his sick room the invalid father of the bride could witness the beautiful ceremony employed by Rev. Owens and the ring used was a rare old amethyst, the same which Dr. Redmon, father of the groom, claimed his bride thirty-five years ago.

Miss Anna is a young woman of culture and refinement and is possessed of a charming personality.  William Redmon is the only son of Dr. and Mrs. Redmon of Tipton.  His rearing and education have been ideal.  He is a Christian man.  He has proven his business worth in connection with the Bank of Tipton, of which his father is president and as a farmer and stockman around his father’s fine Jersey dairy farm.

Immediately following the wedding the bridal party were sumptuously dined at the Haddan home.  A delicious forty pound turkey with all the trimmings were served.  On the 1:38 train they left for Kansas City to visit the American Royal, thence to St. Louis where they will take the “Stacker Lee” down the Mississippi, stopping at Memphis, Vicksburg and New Orleans, across the gulf to Tampa, Florida, and back by rail to Tipton, where a reception from the groom’s friends awaits them.  They will be at home after December 1 at Tipton.

Miss Gilleland was principal of the Skidmore High School last year.
