ONTARIO COUNTY TIMES November
Among the latest items of interest is the marriage of Mr. Will Ketcham
to Miss Lottie Vandenburgh, which occurred on the 20th instant. If the old
saying be true, and the bride prove as stormy as the wedding day, we may, as a
matter of course, look for squally times. But judging from the happy and amiable
face of the bride, we conclude that these old maxims are like our weather, very
uncertain. Congratulations to the happy couple.
