soon to become the bride of Cornelius Wolf, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Wolf,
Mr. Plender, Sr., was married to Mrs. Meyer recently and the newly weds are
visiting Mr. Plender’s sons and daughters in this vicinity. They will make
their home in Pella. The new Mrs. Plender visited here several times at the
Sol and Fred Leck homes, so is not a stranger to many.
Mrs. J. W. Graff and daughter, Florence, of Granville, are leaving this week
for Hope, N. D., to be present at the marriage of their son and brother, J.
H. Graff, and Miss Genevieve Ricker, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. W. Ricker.
The two families were neighbors at Granville for many years.
Mr. and Mrs. John Kooreman, of Salem, Oregon, who have been visiting for a
month with their brothers and sisters in this vicinity, left Wednesday for
their home. Mr. Korreman has served the Southern Pacific railroad at Salem
for nearly twenty years and next May he will have earned the right to retire
on a pension.
J. L. McMannaman, of Hawarden, who was serving out a three months sentence
and $300 fine for bootlegging in the co9unty jail, was released Wednesday
after serving out the three months and paying the fine and costs, $356.75.
It was further stipulated that he should leave the county within 30 days, or
run the risk of re-arrest on sight.
The marriage of William V. Hansen and Miss Marcella Konz took place Monday
morning at 8:15 at St. Mary’s church, Very Rev. F. J. Brune officiating.
Mrs. Hansen has always been one of the most popular young ladies in her set,
but has always been, too, a “home girl,” the treasured help of her mother.
The groom, for a number of years lineman for the Remsen-Alton-Granville
Telephone company, has a splendid reputation as a steady, reliable young
man, of honest character, ambitious and thrifty, who will make his mark in
the world. His reputation as a ball player is more than local. While
playing with the LeMars club his batting average rose to the top, not only
of his own club, but of any club in the semi-pro league to which LeMars
belonged at that time. He has been a tower of strength to the Alton Club on
short and second, not only because of his work with the stick but also on
account of his wonderful fielding ability.
