Edwin A. Kreuger & Metta A. Miller Marriage   Kruger & Metta Miller Marriage part 2
Edwin A Kreuger & Metta A. Miller
A very pretty church wedding occurred at the German Baptist church, Wednesday, October 6, 1909, when, at eleven o'clock a.m., Rev. J.G. Draewel performed the marriage ceremony that united for life, Metta A. Miller and Edwin A. Kreuger. The ceremony was a very pretty one and was witnessed by a large number of relatives and immediate friends.

The young couple advanced to the alter to the strains of the wedding march, played by Hans Keiser, where they were met by Rev. J. G. Draewel who pronounced the words that made them husband and wife. After congratulations about  seventy-five relatives drove to the home of bride's parents, Hon, and Mrs. Christian Miller in Clermont, where an elegant wedding dinner was served. In the evening a reception was tendered to the young acquaintances of the couple and they gathered at the home where they spent the evening pleasantly. The German Baptist band was there and played a number of very nice selections.

Miss Miller is a young lady of accomplishments and refinement, who has a large circle of friends whom she has won by her lovable and womanly disposition. She will make a true wife and helpmate for the man of her choice.

Mr. Kreuger is a young man of sterling qualities and exemplary habits.  He has grown to manhood here and is widely known as a man whose word is as good as his bond, and now that he has taken a life partner his many friends will congratulate.

Mr. and Mrs. Kreuger will commence married life by assuming control of the farm which has been conducted by Alfred Miller, while he and his  wife will move to Clermont where he will assist in the work of the power dam which is being built by Miller & Sons, and as Mrs. Kreuger is the youngest daughter of the family it brings to mind and interesting fact. Christian Miller and wife have reared a large and interesting family. They are all thrifty and prosperous and Mr. Miller has so arranged his business affairs as to give each of his children a nice start, and now he has all his boys and girls nicely located, some engaged in mercantile and others in agricultural pursuits, but, all prospering and living near him. The families work in harmony and Mr. Miller always has a business place for his boys and girls which keeps them near him and gives to our community worthy and progressive citizens.  The ECHO extends congratulations and best wishes to Mr. and Mrs.Kreuger.
