BRADFORD COUNTY YOUNG
PEOPLE IN ROMANTIC MARRIAGE,
Stole Away to Wiles-Barre Where
They Were Made As One.
The Pittston Gazette gives the following particulars of the romantic
marriage of Bradford county your people: “Unexpected developments tinged
with romance” the marriage of two young people of Bradford county, who
came to Luzerne county to have the nuptial knot tied.
Floyd E. Dixon of Rome, has been a general store clerk, and Miss Emma A. Hill, of North Orwell, a school teacher agreed that they would quietly steal away to Wilkes-Barre and surprise their friends by returning as Mr. and Mrs. Dixon.
So in Wilkes-Barre they arrived and betook themselves to the court house for a marriage license. The time was 4 p.m. and the office of the marriage license clerk was closed. The young people were in despair. Attorney W. W. Hall and Attorney R. A. Huber who were in the recorder’s office, learning of their predicament, informed them that they could secure a marriage license from Alderman Smith of Pittston. The directed them how to come to Pittston and reach the alderman’s office on north Main street.
After finishing their work in the recorder’s office, the two attorneys boarded Attorney Hall’s Ford runabout and made the run to this city. Meantime the young couples had taken the Laurel Line car. They had thanked Hall and Hubler, whom they supposed were clerks in the court house. As Hall and Hubler came up South Main street, they espied the bride and groom. The young people were more surprised at the meeting than the attorneys, not expecting to see clerks in automobiles.
Perceiving their quandary Mr. Hall motioned to young Dixon and Miss Hill and when they drew near told them that if they would get in the machine he would drive them to the deputy marriage clerk’s office. In the machine they got, very happy. Alderman Smith’s office was reached in two minutes and the license duly procured. “Why not allow the aldermen to marry you?” asked Mr. Hall. The rejoicing groom was willing. But the blushing bride stammered, “No”. She wished to be married by a clergyman.
With the alderman as guide the young people were piloted to the
parsonage of the First Methodist Episcopal church on Broad street. Rev.
George A. Cure, the pastor was not at home, but he arrived soon. With the
regular church ritual, the more impressive because of the quiet simplicity
of the service, Rev Cure at 6 o’clock declared Floyd E. Dixon of Rome,
Pa., and Miss Emma A. Hill of North Orwell, Pa., husband and wife.
Mr. and Mrs. Dixon returned to Wyalusing Thursday evening. They got word that their friends were wise, and so to outwit them, they continued on to Homets Ferry, where they left the train and took a carriage for Wyalusing. Here they were met by a large number of friends, who had surrounded the newly furnished home which the groom had provided for his bride, and if ever a newly wedded pair received a royal welcome, it was Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Dixon. The groom is employed in smith & Waldo’s store at Wyalusing, and is highly regarded by all who know him. His bridge is a charming young lady, and like her husband, is highly esteemed. Thus they started on the journey across the sea of Matrimony.
