from TRUTH NUNDA, May 24, 1907

MARRIAGE "CATCHING" / Bridesmain and Best Man Followed Suit /Had Stood Up at Wedding And Tuesday night Geo P Conklin and Maude L Swain drove to Nunda from Swains to be married by Rev Dryer.

Marriage seems to be contagious in Nunda as scarlet fever is in Dansville. Last January, George P Conklin of this town and Miss Maude L Swain of Swains, acted as the bridal attendants at the Floyd Conklin wedding when that gentleman married Miss Fanny Walker, the ceremony being performed at that time by Rev RC Dryer at the M E parsonage.

Great was the surprise of the Rev Mr Dryer Tuesday evening when those who stood up with the January bridal party, appeared at the parsonage and requested the pastor to go through the same ceremony once more, substituting the names of George P Conklin and Maude L Swain.

After the magic words were pronounced, the happy couple drove 10 miles to Swains where at the home of the bride, a pleasant reception was held and congratulations were extended to Mr & Mrs Conklin.
