MARRIED, At 8 o'clock p.m., July 7, at the office of Justice A.J. Endley, Mr. John H. Hammond and Miss Sarah Kern.

The news of the marriage of Mr. Dumont D. Rogers and Miss Maude Emminger created quite a little stir in social circles Friday night.  The young people are well knon in Mansfield.  The groom is the youngest son of Capt. W.A. Rogers and the bride the daughter of Mr. George Emminger.  The young people went to Toledo Friday morning, the groom for the ostensible purpose of purchasing a line of trunks for the city trade and the bride for the purpose of paying a visit to her cousin at Toledo.  Miss Emminger had the permission of her parents to make the trip, but the marriage was as much of a surprise to them as to anyone.  The first known of the affair was the receipt of two telegrams, one by Capt. Rogers and the other by Mr. Emminger.  The telegrams were alike and read as follows:  "Were married at 3 o'clock.  Will be home tomorrow."  The groom is not yet twenty years of age and the bride was seventeen last April.  The license was in all probability secured in Michigan at Detroit.  The telegrams were sent from Toledo, so the supposition is, that the couple went to Detroit direct and after marriage returned directly to Toledo.  They evidently did not waste any time in sending the messages.  It is known that Mr. Rogers bought the line of trunks.  He evidently had an eye for business and succeeded in hitting two birds with one stone.  Whether the whole trip was engineered with matrimonial intentions or not, is not known, but if it was it was certainly managed very skillfully.

Mr. Will G. Colwell, manager for the Oliver Chilled Plow Company at Rochester, N.Y., was married at 7:30 p.m. Thursday to Miss Lena Ritter, at the residence of the bride's father, Mr. John Ritter, the Rev. D.J. Meese officiating.  The young couple left at 8 o'clock for Rochester, by way of Cleveland.  Both have the best wishes of a very large circle of friends in this city.

21 July 1887, Vol. 3, No. 34

MARRIED, At the residence of the bride's father on Pine Street, July 12, at 7:30 p.m., Mr. James B. Keith and Miss Anna Mohler, the Rev. J.A. Dunlap officiating.

11 August 1887, Vol. 3, No. 37

MARRIED, At the home of the bride in this city, at 8 p.m., Aug. 4, 1887.  Mr. Ashabel D. Pastorius and Mrs. Mary L. Kennedy.  Rev. Huddleston, officiating.

18 August 1887, Vol. 3, No. 38

In this city, August 8th., John C. Carrothers, of East Fourth Street, and Mrs. Abbie Gates were married by the Rev. G.W. Huddleston.  Only a short time before the wife secured a divorce at Sandusky from her husband, Theodore Gates, who is now in this city driving the mail to and from the depots.  The groom secured the license in Sandusky and and came to this city to be married.  The couple have been living quietly at the residence of the former's father, Mr. Samuel Carrothers, on East Fourth Street.  The affair was kept very quiet.  On Wednesday Mr. Samuel Carrothers knew nothing about the case and frankly admitted to it a reporter.  Near neighbors only learned the fact of the marriage Saturday.
