September 16, 1897

Harriet Eleanor Carr married Rev. J. Willard DeYoe, the son of James S. DeYoe and Gina B. Welton. 

Thurs Sept 16  Cooler  rained in the morning  we thought Harriet would have a gloomy wedding but it cleared off near 11 AM & the guests began to come & we had a grand good day & all went off as it Should  we had over a 100 here to dinner  I gave them $100 in gold & they got many nice presents & in the Evening 7 Chivareers[1] came & made night hideous with horns guns Bells &c  there were more of them but only 7 came in  I went out & invited them in  we gave them Supper & used them well & I guess they wished themselves at home  I paid Mrs. Hicks [possibly Clarissa Hicks, wife of William] $1,50 for baking buns for the wedding.
