After the ceremonies a fine dinner was in waiting to which all did ample justice. We would make especial mention that the bride herself was the principal one in the preparation – an example for others to follow. The Merriman family is well and favorably known over all of eastern Kansas by all the oldest settlers, and by the officers and soldiers in the times of the Indian raids. They settled near Fort Harker before the fort was built there and have lived in Ellsworth and Lincoln counties ever since.
The Loy family came along with a great many others from Maryland and Virginia in 1872, and are noted for their hospitality – so characteristic of those people wherever you find them.

No young couple in Lincoln ever stepped off the plank into the sea of wedded life followed by more congratulations and sincere wishes for long lives of happiness and prosperity. Mr. Wilmarth has grown up from boyhood in Lincoln County, and dates his residence here from 1871, and counts as wellwishers hosts of newcomers, as well as the old settlers among whom he has ever been a conspicous figure and a popular associate. He is a popular businessman and probably has more than an average business career before him. Miss Dewey is particulary fortunate in being able to count as admirers all who have met her during her residence here.

Sept. 29, 1886, at Corinth, Williamson County, Ill., John Henderson and Della Duryee, formerly both of this place. As child, youth and man we have known John Henderson and have yet to hear the first unkind or disrespectful word spoken of him. He was my pupil 14 years ago, in the first school ever taught in Lincoln Center. "Johnnie" and Della were both my pupils in the Lost Creek school nine years ago, and I remember they had a "leaning toward" each other in those days. Della, I remember as a gentle-mannered, intelligent and amiable girl. A year or two later she removed with her parents to Illinois.
Having relatives in that state, John went there last August, and "All’s well that ends well." "May they live long and prosper," is the wish of hundreds of friends in Lincoln County. – A.C.W.
