Tri County Clippings- Troy Gazette Register 1911
|These clippings from ancient
and fragile newspapers stored above the Troy Gazette-Register office are
being typed by Tri-County volunteers for presentation on site. Primarily
we are preserving the neighborhood news columns and the obituary, marriage
and birth information included in them. I intend also to include articles
that show the influences on the lives and attitudes of our local populations
at the time, and I will also illustrate the individual pages with ads from
the era. Nothing is more revealing of lifestyle than the goods and services
The TGR covers the area of all townships surrounding Troy and many neighborhoods have a local column submitted, but not necessarily every week or even every year.
Our thanks goes to the staff of the Troy Gazette-Register for giving us access to this valuable old news so that we can share it with you. There is no better way to understand the culture and customs of our old communities than by sifting through these clippings. Even the names of some of these old communities have ceased to exist in today's world, but we have them captured and preserved here. If you do not have the time to enjoy the luxury of sifting through clippings, these will be included in the Search Engine which you can reach from the "Front Door" of the Tri-County Genealogy & History sites by Joyce M. Tice.

Romantic Marriage at Bentley Creek.
Referring to the recent marriage of Charles Fremont Chamberlain and Mrs. Nancy Cofflin Winegard at the Baptist Parsonage in Wellsburg, where they were attended by Mr. and Mrs. Earl Wilcox, the Bentley Creek correspondent of the Towanda Review writes:
“A Romance is connected with the wedding. Mr. Chamberlain and Miss Coffin were schoolmates of long ago, and 42 years ago Mr. Chamberlain, then but a small boy, went with his parents to reside in South Dakota, hence they drifted apart. Miss Coffin was later married and became a widow, and for the past two years she has made her home in White Hall, Mich. She returned here from Philadelphia this spring, where she had been spending the winter. During her two years’ absence Mr. Chamberlain had returned to Bentley Creek and purchase the old farm where Mrs. Winegard was raised adjoining the farm where he had spent his early days. A fine new dwelling and farm buildings now mark the spot where the old homestead once stood, and it was to this home that Mr. Chamberlain brought his bride. Both are highly respected and have a host of friends who wish them happiness and prosperity as they journey on life’s pathway.”

The VanDyne-Nearing Wedding in Philadelphia.
An autumnal wedding of note commensurated of the union of the two prominent and wealthy families which it represented was that of Thursday, October 10th, when Miss Dorothy Nearing of Philadelphia, became the bride of Henry Bowers VanDyne, only son of Mr. and Mrs. E. Everett VanDyne of Troy. This happy event also celebrated the twenty-ninth wedding anniversary of the groom’s parents. The wedding ceremony was performed by the pastor in the Universalist church of the Messiah.
Promptly at 6:30 o’clock the bridal party entered the church to the strains of Lohengrin’s march. First the ushers, Allen Pierce of Troy, Dudley Redfield of Hartford, Conn., and Guy and Max Nearing of Philadelphia, brothers of the bride, followed by the bridesmaids, the Misses Beatrice Nearing and Elizabeth VanDyne, each carrying large bouquets of white chrysanthemums in a setting of autumnal oak leaves, having for a beautiful contrasting background the filmy light blue gowns of the fair ones. Next came the maid of honor, Miss Mary Nearing, in a gown of light blue charmeuse, carrying a bouquet of pink roses. The bride followed leaning on the arm of her father. She was attired in a very handsome gown of white satin trimmed with orange blossoms and rose point lace, and inheritance from her grandmother. They were met at the altar by the groom and best man, Mr. George Case of Troy. At the conclusion of the ceremony the bridal party and guest repaired to “Hamilton Court,” where an elegant reception was held. The hall was a bower of beauty, with its elaborated decorations of chrysanthemums, oak leaves and palms, which represented the artistic skill and handiwork of the city’s finest florist. The guests were received by the bride and groom, assisted by their parents, and contrary to the usual custom, mingled with and entertained their guests while they partook of the wedding menu, after which they repaired to an adjoining room, where the bridal table was beautiful and complete in all of its appointments, the decorations being in accord with that of the other rooms. A pleasing incident was the leave taking of the bride and groom, marching down the long hall bowing and smiling to all as they passed, with such grace and dignity that we were carried back in memory to description of the colonial weddings of our great-grandmothers, and it seemed almost fitting to conclude with the old-time stately minuet.
The groom’s gift to the bride was a costly cluster diamond ring, the best man and ushers, valuable scarf pins, while the bride favored her attendants with bar pins set with pearls. The presents were many, being both costly and rare, among them a Baby Grand Steinway piano, presented by the groom’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. VanDyne.
They left for an extended trip, after which they will be at home to their friends in Troy after December 1st.
