WEDDINGS AT REMSEN
POPULAR YOUNG PEOPLE JOINED IN MATRIMONY
PRINCIPALS ARE WELL KNOWN
Miss Margaret Kenney and Joseph Kramer Are United in Marriage in the
Presence of Many Friends
Remsen Bell-Enterprise: Miss Margaret Kenney, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm.
Kenney residing southeast of Remsen, and Mr. Joseph Kramer, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Henry Kramer, who live west of Remsen, were united in the holy bonds of
matrimony Tuesday morning at nine o’clock at St. Mary’s Catholic church in
Marcus. It was one of the prettiest affairs ever solemnized in Marcus, and
many were the friends and relatives who attended the nuptial mass. Promptly
at the appointed hour the young couple were escorted to the church by the
bride’s sister, Ellen Kenney, and bridegroom’s brother, Will Kramer. The
bride was attired in a gown of white imported net trimmed with lace. She
wore a wreath and veil and carried a bouquet of bridal roses. Her maid was
dressed in pink silk chiffon. Upon the conclusion of the ceremonies, the
bridal party repaired to the home of the bride’s parents, eleven miles
southeast of Remsen, where a reception was tendered to a very large number
of their friends, as well as the entire family circle. The home was
beautifully decorated in the chosen colors, pink and white, and a profusion
of pink and white chrysanthemums were very effectively used in adding to the
appearance of the dining room, where dinner was served at noon.
Mr. and Mrs. Kramer departed for LeMars late in the afternoon and they
boarded a west bound train in the evening. They will visit in western cities
for a week and will return to Remsen to settle on the farm west of town,
which the groom has been occupying of late. In the spring they will go to
their future home four miles south of town. The bride, on her honeymoon
trip, wore a suit of dark blue matlasse.
Mr. and Mrs. Kramer carry with them the best of wishes of a multitude of
friends in the community, and both the bride and the bridegroom both of whom
have spent almost all their younger days here, are highly deserving of the
fulfillment of those wishes.

past eight the bride escorted by the groom’s brother, Henry, entered the
church, where, attracted by the popularity of the young couple, a large
number of friends awaited their coming, together with the relatives. Miss

chine, Miss Elizabeth Lotz in light blue brocaded charmeuse and each carried
a bouquet of pink roses.
The ceremony concluded, the bridal party received congratulations from their
waiting friends at the church entrance, after which they returned to the
home of the bride’s parents. Upon entering the reception room they were
greeted with the wedding march played by Miss Laura Meyer, a very dear
friend of the bride, after which all sat down to a bountiful breakfast. The
dining hall was decorated in the colors, pink and white. At noon a sumptuous
dinner was served, and Mr. and Mrs. Ahmann spent the remainder of the day
among only the immediate relatives.
The five thirty train bore the couple to Chicago that evening but not until
they had received many congratulations and sincere best wishes from a crowd

Omaha. Mr. Ahmann is assistant cashier in the First National Bank here, a
position which he has filled very creditably for several years.

MARRIED FIFTY YEARS
Mr. and Mrs. N. S. Moore Assisted in Celebrating Golden Wedding
Anniversary by many Relatives
Mr. and Mrs. N.S. Moore celebrated their fiftieth, or golden, wedding
anniversary at their home in this city on Sunday, October 19, 1913,
under most pleasant and happy conditions. Relatives from this section
and as far east as New England, to the number of about forty, gathered
here to assist them in the observance of the important event. Some of
the relatives met there for the first time and the day was delightfully
spent in the recounting of family reminiscences, visiting and
At a few minutes after one o'clock the honored couple received their
first happy surprise of the occasion. Mr. and Mrs. Moore were seated in
the front parlor under a tastefully arranged canopy, from which was
suspended a large wedding bell, when Mayor A. L Yeaton was ushered in
and, in the presence of the assembled relatives, proceeded to perform a
marriage ceremony in commemoration of that of a half century before.
While there was lacking the solemnity of the ceremony long ago, it
brought back to them a flood of tender memories and, at the same time
opened the way for a period of pertinent jollity, mostly at the expense
of the "newly-married couple."
The dinner hour was then announced-and such a repast it was! The
choicest viands and all the delicacies of the market and season were
served. The dining room was beautifully decorated, twisted streamers of
alternate white and gold, extended from the sidewalls to the chandelier
in the center, from which was suspended a large white bell. An alcove
and the doorways leading from the dining room were also tastefully
festooned with the colors. The tables were laid in the dining room and
with the decorations of cut flowers and silverware, formed a very pretty
scene. Place cards, tied with white and gold ribbon, were used to seat
the guests, and of course, Mr. and Mrs. Moore were assigned places of
honor at the head of the main table.
Mr. and Mrs. N. S. Moore were born and reared in Brattleboro, Vermont,
where they were united in marriage October 19, 1863. Rev. Chandler, a
Congregational minister, performing the ceremony. At that time Mr.
Moore was seriously ill of typhoid fever and until his convalescence
twenty-one days later his bride faithfully nursed him back to health, as
she was called upon to do several times in after years. In March, 1865,
they came to Dubuque, Iowa, where Mr. Moore engaged in the lumber
business. Later the Dubuque Lumber Co., was organized, he and M. H. and
M. A. Moore constituting the managing members of the firm. Mr. Moore
continued in the lumber and planning mill business, meeting with several
reverses in the shape of fires, until he came to Akron in 1891-about
twenty two years ago-and engaged in the retail lumber and coal business.
In 1892 he built the present commodious home, where the family has
resided since coming from Dubuque, July 5, 1892. On July 1, 1911, he
sold his lumber interests here to his brother, M.A. and his sons, F.D.
and Orlan C. and retired from active business.
In this community, where Mr. Moore and his estimable wife have passed so
many years of long married life of such rare mutual companionship, they
have the sincere congratulations of a host of friends and wishes for
many more happy anniversaries of their wedding day.
They were the recipients of many handsome and valuable gifts and
remembrances from their relatives, including a purse of $100 in gold.
Eleven children came to bless the home of Mr. and Mrs. Moore, seven of
whom are living and were present at their parents' golden wedding
anniversary. Their names are included in the following list of guests
Mr. and Mrs. M. A. Moore and daughters, Alice and Colla; Mr. and Mrs.
Fred D. Moore and son, John, Dwight and Robert; Mr. and Mrs. F. A. Post

FEDERAL COURT IN SESSION
CASES AGAINST MONTGOMERY AND MURPHY WILL BE PUSHED
Sioux City Journal: The October term of the federal court for northern
Iowa opened yesterday. Motions on bankruptcy cases were filed during
the forenoon. The grand jury and the petit jury were impaneled
yesterday afternoon. Thirty-five petit jurors reported after excuses
had been accepted in a few cases. Judge Henry T. Reed is presiding.
The first important case to be taken up was that of R.W. Henderson, a
Morningside College student, against the Sioux City Service company for
$25,000 damages. This action was transferred from the district court.
Henderson was injured October 28, 1913, when a Burlington railroad
engine collided with a Morningside line street car at Fourth and
Henderson was a passenger on the street car. A sharp instrument
penetrated his back to the depth of nine inches, it is set forth in his
petition. Permanent injuries to vital organs of his body were caused by

WAS AN EARLY PIONEER
NEVILLE REDMON DIES AT THE OLD HOMESTEAD
HAD LIVED THERE FORTY YEARS
The Decedent Was One of the First Settlers in America Township and
Built the First School House There--Leaves Many Descendants
Neville Redmon, one of the oldest and best known of the early pioneers
of Plymouth county, died at his home in America township on Thursday night
at half past ten at the ripe old age of eighty-five years. Mr. Redmon had
been in feeble health for the past few months and had not been off the farm
since last spring. His death was due to the infirmities of old age.
The passing of Mr. Redmon marks the removal of another sturdy pioneer
from the ranks of the old timers who are fast disappearing. He lived for
forty-five years on the place which he homesteaded and the Redmon place and
school house are landmarks in the county.
Neville Redmon was born in Jackson township, Brown county, Ohio, on
November 30, 1828 and was a son of Alfred and Mary Pickerell Redmon. His
grandfather, Alfred Redmon, was of English descent. When Neville was a boy
of five years old his parents moved to Hamilton county, Indiana, and there
he received a common school education. When a youth he learned the
carpenter trade which he followed for a number of years. Mr. Redmon was
married in April, 1849 to Nancy Jane Keyst, who died five years later,
leaving two sons who are Alfred, of Omaha, and Lafayette D., of Avoca, Neb.
He was united in marriage with Lucretia L. Stanton March 31, 1857, who was
the mother of nine children, who are Mrs. Henry Liesinger, of America
township, George Redmon, of Pipestone, Mrs. A. Demaray, of Jackson, Neb.,
Will of Bonesteel, J. G. Redmon, LeMars, Douglas, residing on the home
place, Mrs. Etta Corkins, Woodstock, N. Y., Mrs. Bertha Fowler, of LeMars,
Mrs. Archie Tucker, of this county. He also leaves twenty-four
grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren. On June 29, 1886, his second
wife departed this life, aged forty-nine years. On August 27, 1887, Mr.
Redmon was united in marriage with Mary B. Robinson, who survives him.
From Indiana Mr. Redmon went to Fillmore county, Minnesota in 1856. He
came to Plymouth county in the spring of 1868 and homesteaded land in
section thirty-two, where he resided until his death. Mr. Redmon lived in
the rough and ready days of the pioneers and underwent the hardships and
vicissitudes which befell the early settlers. He was wont to recall the
times when winter blizzards raged and the wolf howled at the door and it was
no small job to procure enough for a large and growing family. While
homesteading Mr. Redmon worked at his trade of carpenter and built many of
the houses in those days. He built the first school in America township.
Mr. Redmon and his family prospered when the country began to be developed
and settled up and he reaped the reward of his labors and lived to a good
old age in affluence and surrounded by his sons and daughters, his chiefest
pleasure being in the family gatherings for which his hospitable house was
Mr. Redmon was a good citizen, neighbor and friend, a loving father and
husband and enjoyed the respect of a large circle of acquaintances in the
community in which he has been a central figure for so many years.
Mr. Redmon was a member of the Masonic order. In politics he was an
independent republican. In early days he filled the offices of justice of
the peace and township trustee.
The funeral was held yesterday afternoon at the First Congregational
church, Rev. J. L. Blanehard, of Cherokee, officiating.
