Pinkerton, Mrs. Margaret (11 June
Mrs. Margaret Pinkerton, who is so well
and favorably known here, guarded well her secret from her friends,
that she had any matrimonial intentions. Perhaps no one knew
that she had gone to Milwaukee with Mr. G.W. Allen to be married
until word was received from there.
Mr. Allen and Mrs. Pinkerton were happily
married by Rev. Webster Miller Tuesday, June 11th, at
Milwaukee. Mr. Allen is quite well known here, having spent
several summers at his cottage on Columbian lake. He has
large lumber interests in the South and fruit and alfalfa ranches
at Roswell, New Mexico.
Mr. and Mrs. Allen will remain at the
Lakes temporarily, and after visiting at Loyal will go to Roswell,
New Mexico. We did not know it was possible to keep a
marriage secret so secret, before. The Leader extends
hearty congratulations for much happiness.
Later—The newly married couple were
as much surprised Monday night as were their friends last
week. At about nine o’clock a party of friends autoed
out to their cottage at Columbian Park with bells and horns and
"jack-o’-lantern" and aroused the retired couple with
melodies which could not be duplicated. After the informal
reception and congratulations a midnight supper was served, fit for
the occasion. A fine souvenir was presented to the visiting
ladies by the bride.
Those in the party were Mr. and Mrs. P.M. Olfson, Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Evans, Dr. and Mrs. J.T. Bristow, Miss Marie Chamberlin, Ward Olfson and Mr. and Mrs. L.W. Krake. - Waupaca Leader
