In honor of the hearts-and-flowers season, we bring you this wedding announcement from a somewhat warmer day in 1914.  From the June 4, 1914 Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:

Wedding, Snell-Twaddell.

Miss Nona Snell of Maitland and Mr. Lloyd Twaddell of Skidmore were united in marriage Wednesday, May 27, 15 12:30 o’clock p.m. at the parsonage of the M. E. Church, South, in St. Joseph.

The ceremony was performed by Rev. P. B. Taylor in the presence of Mr. Joseph Shull of Skid- Maitland, who accompanied the young couple to St. Joseph Wednesday morning.

The bride is one of the very popular young ladies and school teachers of Maitland and the groom is a prosperous and industrious young farmer of near Skidmore.  They will go to housekeeping at once on the groom’s farm and will take with them to their new home the best wishes of a host of friends of Skidmore, Maitland and Graham, where the bride and groom are so well known.
