Mt. Vernon IL Register - November 26, 1884 Submitted By: Mary Zinzilieta Crystal Wedding Chimes - On Monday last the REGISTER man was accosted with "Are you going to the wedding to-night?" He looked confused and said "No, where?" Why at Abe Casey's out at Pleasant Grove, of course. "Hav'nt you ..." The balance except the particulars we'll tell you some other time, but the REGISTER man "took the cake" all 'ee same. About one hundred persons old and young were assembled at the old "Uncle Tommy" Mansion and the occasion was the Crystal Wedding of A. T. Casey and Laura E. Casey. The hospitable couple with their amiable daughters Effie and Winnie and son Eddie all about "grown-up," were honored with the presence of many of their friends and relatives, who until a late hour in the evening mingled together in a happy re-union of conversation, song and congratulations. An appropriate repast was served and "all went merry as a marriage bell." It is a long time since we had the pleasure of mingling with so many persons of such widely divergent characteristics, ages and history. Jollie "Uncle Jick" Maxey, now over 70, with his impulsive good humor, and old time hunting and other stories --- his good wife "Aunt Polly," with her smiling face, have lived to see Jefferson county grow up from a wilderness where the pioneer would climb to the roof of his cabin and drop corn to the good old sow below to keep her near by, while bruin crouched in the brush only a few rods away waiting for an opportunity to pounce upon her, and another member of the family run to a neighbor's for a trusty rifle to bring protection and relief, to a bright land of numerous happy homes, and of churches, school houses, railroads and all the modern improvements. How queer it seems that only a few years ago "Unlce Tommy" and Aunt Harriet Casey, both now gone to the long resting place, should have scraped the snow away on a spot only a few rods from the house where their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren with their friends are now so happily enjoying the good things of life, and built their rude hut of rails, plastered and carpeted with dry prairie grass, and over the hole cut in one side hung the dried deer-skin for a door, than which none in the land has been more hospitable. And here, in these later days their children and their children's children keep step with the march of Time, and all who come in or go out are impressed with the fact that in the training of those who grew up around them, those sturdy pioneers did their work well. We had the pleasure of meeting, among many others, Mr. Joseph MOSSER, the venerable father of the hostess, who has lived to see built the first railroad in Pennsylvania and in Illinois, who made political speeches in the former state away back in the thirties, when the Anti-Masonic ticket was run in the Presidential race. Also, his genial son, J. Ritner MOSSER, for twenty years the successful publisher of the Decatur Republican. Of course, he is a warm Republican and claims to have done his full share in electing "Uncle Dick."Esq. Clint CASEY with his good wife, who has a kindly smile for all, were present; also our Esquire CASEY, wife and daughter, Birdie; and Mrs. O. O. PETTIT and J. B. WARREN , of Mt. Vernon; Miss Addie MOSS, of Shiloh, who is teaching school at Pleasant Grove, and who, by the way, seemed to be about the most popular young lady in the assemblage. The presents to the happy couple Mr. and Mrs. CASEY were numerous and practical as well as very pretty. We believe the following represents the list, with the donors: Pair bread plates, Mr. and Mrs. Mart ARMOUR; molasses pitcher, Miss Hattie BUCK; shaving mug, C. M. CASEY; molasses pitcher, Miss Emma PETTIT and Mrs. E. Weir; pickle and preserve dish, Mrs. G. W. SMITH; pitcher ewer mug, 1/2 dozen butter plates, soup dish and pair of scissors, Joseph MOSSER, accompanied by a short poem; cake stand, Mrs. Jane ARMOUR; china cup and saucer, Mrs. Ella GALBRAITH; pair vases, Mr. and Mrs. W. Barg CASEY; butter dish, John FYKE; vase, Miss Birdie CASEY; pair vases, Mrs. John WILLIS; pair handkerchiefs and collar, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. M. CASEY; glass fruit dish, W. J. HICKS; pair vases, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. PETTIT and Miss Addie MOSS; dress pattern, Mrs. Jick MAXEY; handkerchief basket, Mrs. J. N. PETTIT; bouquet natural flowers, Mrs. Clint CASEY; breakfast, dinner and tea set, 124 pieces, J. R. MOSSER, Mr. and Mrs. A. S. ROBINSON, and Master Artie Mosser ROBINSON; cup, J. N. PETTIE; pkg. popcorn, Master Charlie PETTIT; Mrs. CASEY's S. S. Class presented a silver castor and also contributed hansomely to the delicious supper; Eddie CASEY presented a handsome hanging lamp.



R. L. Yearwood and Miss Mary Bruns Joined in Matrimony- Principals Are Well Known

At 8 o'clock Saturday evening Ralph L. Yearwood and Miss Mary Bruns were married by Squire W. W. Price at his office. They were accompanied by only a small cotreie of friends who witnessed the performance. The young folks have been telling their aquaintances for some time past that they expected to get married soon, but it was generally considered that they were just joking, but they made good their talk and are now in the midst of the responsibilities of married life. Mr. Yearwood is in the employ of the Register and has charge of the typesetting machine. He has been one of the force for a good many years and is looked upon as one of the fixtures. Mrs. Yearwood is the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Andy Bruns. For several years she has resided in the city, at the home of her uncle, John Collins. The young folks start on their life journey with the good wishes of their numerous friends and aquaintances. Mt. Vernon Register January 30, 1911 Submitted by: Sharlet Bigham LaBarbera Sept 18, 1997

Charles Nigh and Miss Edna Pearl Rutherford were quietly married by Pastor J. F. Harmon in the study of the First M. E. church at 9:45 last night in the presence of a few intimate friends. The groom is the Adams Express messenger on the Jacksonville & St. Louis between this city and Jacksonville, and is a young gentleman of high charcater and of great personal popularity among his associates. His home is in Newton,Ill., but having been a resident of Mt. Vernon for several years this city has a stronger claim upon him than the place of birth. The bride is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. M. Rutherford and is a very handsome and attractive young lady. Devoid of ostentation as their wedding was, no less was their manner of going to housekeeping, and immediately after their marriage, they repaired to their home, in the Tabb property at 207 West Broadway, which had been nicely furnished for their reception. The REGISTER presents its congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Nigh and wishes them a long life of prosperity and happiness.
