An interesting article appeared in an 1886 issue of The Republican,
copied as written:
At the residence of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bernhart Lacher,
in Honey Creek township, Iowa county, Iowa, on Thursday evening, November 18,
1886, by the Rev. Geo. Weber, of Vinton, Mr. Henry Linder, of Garrison,
Benton county, and Miss Caroline Lacher, of the former place.
A number of friends and relatives were present to witness the ceremony,
and to start them out upon the troubled sea of matrimony with hearty good
wishes for a safe and pleasant voyage. A large number of presents attested
the esteem in which they are held by their many friends.
The Republican extends to this young couple its best wishes, and trusts
that life with them will be prosperous and happy.
The following is a list of the presents:
Father and mother of the Bride--Set of furniture.
Mother of Groom--Coffee mill.
Mr. and Mrs. Martin Linder--Bed spread.
Mr. Charles Lacher--Two linen towels and picture.
