Ives, Carrie (Marriage - 14 March 1908)


A quite and unpretentious wedding occurred on Saturday evening of last week, March 14, at the home of Geo. Ives at which time Miss Carry Ives became the wife of Wm. Carpenter. The bride is a popular young lady and also a graduate of the Marshfield high school and has taught two or three successful terms of school where her faithful work and loveable disposition won her a host of friends. The groom is an energetic young man and has a best of friends. They will make their home in this neighborhood amidst the best wishes of their many friends.

To have an hones man's house surrounded by about 30 or 40 neighbors who have in possession pistols, rifles, cross cut saws, cow bells and dynamite with about 50 feet fuse is something rare under the moon. This took place between 9 and 11 o'clock Saturday evening of March 14. It was the chivari Wm Carpenter was worthy of, after he claimed one of the most beautiful young ladies in this vicinity as his wife. No more than had John Kintzele left the residence was bang, bang it went and several guns were discharged in the air, occasionally a stick of dynamite made its report which could be heard 10 miles of more. A bachelor living 1 1/2 miles from the scene while enjoying a good smoke out of an old Henry Clay heard the roar of the charge of dynamite, dropped his pipe and come to the scene bare headed. While he was gone the house cat discovered the milk pitcher on the table, but could not get to the contents unless forced her head into the pitcher. This she did. After licking up the sweet milk which was the middle aged man had prepared for his breakfast, tried to return to her usual sleeping place, but in vain, she was as helpless as a fly in our syrup glass, and fell asleep on the floor with the above mentioned subject fastened around her head. Upon his return he quietly opened the door and the first step took stepped on the cat's tail. Just like living phantom an in a moment he was half delirious, he discovered his little friend in a terrible condition. In his delirious mind and nervous prostration he saw the milk pitcher, grabbed the double bladed as and with clip he parted the cat, but only to his sorrow, the head of the cat was still in the pitcher. Now the only thing to be done was to break the earthen object and get the cat's head out. You may believe this or no, I wont be anything out or nor you anything ahead. Well never mind, the cat and the pitcher have lost its attractions on the bachelor's table. We, we are five dollars ahead till next Saturday night, and Wm Carpenter is five dollars out because he handed it to us as freely as the water runs under the iron bridge north of Fred Dankemeyer's. Bill showed us a pleasing face, whether it was for our hard labor we performed or because he was so proud of his Farm. Be that as it may, come to Emroy Davis' next Saturday night, March 21. You will be surprised in the manor the $ 5.00 are distributed.

No, we haven't heard anything about spring election, be we guess there is a rabbit in the bush. The fellow who inquired must be guilty.

** Notes** ** I have no idea who wrote this or what paper it came out of. I do know it was written in 1908 that is when they were married ** Wm Carpenter is the son of Alford and Ida Ann (Harding) Carpenter. ** Carry Ives should be Carrie Ives ** This article was taped in the back of a book that was written by Carrie Ives Carpenter's sister.

Will Carpenter of Heathville thought to steal a march on a lot of suspicious people, and with John Kintzele in the secret repaired to the Jack Ives home and was quietly married to Carrie, the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Ives, but alas the best laid plans of mice and men gang after agree and directly after the ceremony the air was full of the music of a hearty Chivari. We know Will for a young man of sterling worth. We haven't the pleasure of the bride's acquaintance, but sufficient to say that she is Will's choice. She undoubtly is possessed of all the attributes for a worthy wife and household queen. To them we extend our heartiest congratulations and best wishes.

** Notes** ** Jack Ives should be George Ives ** Date of Marriage is 14 Mar. 1908 which was written on the side of the article as well and the name of the paper and where it was published.
