THE FREMONT COUNTY HERALD. January 7, 1910. "MARRIED AT ALLERTON.". -- Roy M. Higgins and Miss Rena Thomas, two of Walnut township's well known and popular young people, quietly slipped away from their many friends the early part of the week and journeyed to Allerton, Iowa, where on Wednesday they were united in marriage, the ceremony being performed by Rev. Louis Ripley, a former resident of this county and an intimate friend of both bride and groom.
Roy is one of the substantial young husbandmen of the east side and is constructed from the stuff that make true men. He formed a wide acquaintance through the county in his race for the democratic nomination for county teasurer at the last primary election in which he was accorded a very flattering vote considering his youth and the fact that it was his first introduction in public life. The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Thomas and the county boasts no better connections than are her's. She has been a popular teacher in the east side schools and is a young lady of culture, refinement and, moreover, industry.
The young couple will visit for a week at various points in the state after which they will return to the home of the groom in Walnut township. In the language of one of the nation's wits, "May they live long and prosper."
