Decatur County Journal
December l6, l892

An interesting event, a triple wedding, occurred at the residence of
UNCLE ABNER MARK, Sunday.  It was the fifty-sixth anniversary of UNCLE
ABNER's wedding day, and the thirty-sixth of MR. KIRBY MCGREW's.

Great preparations had been made for the event by the immediate
relatives of the old people, and when REV. LUCE of Cainsville, Mo.
arrived, MR. JOHN MITCHELL and MISS LILLIE MCGREW surprised all present
by making it a triple wedding.  The contracting parties are all well
known here and especially the young people.  MR. MITCHELL has lived here
for a number of years and is a young man of promise.  He is at present
engaged in school teaching; MISS MCGREW needs no words of commendation
from us, as she is well known to a large circle of admiring friends.
She is also engaged in teaching school, in which she excels.

We wish them peace and prosperity, and as they climb the matrimonial
mountain of bliss, we hope they may gather many little 'Lillies' and
'JOHNNY-jump-ups' by the way and thus secure the fruition of all their
hopes in married life.
