Tampico Lady Surprises Her Many Friends By Marriage at Mitaca, Minnesota

The many friends of Mrs. Lovinna R. Booth of this place will be somewhat surprised to hear of her marriage recently at Mitaca, Minn. The following account is taken from the Mitaca Times:

The marriage of Mrs. Lovina R. Booth of Tampico, Illinois, to Mr. William P. McCombs of Foresston, Illinois, was solemnized in this city Wednesday morning, Dec. 18, 1912, at nine o'clock at the home of the bride's niece, Mrs. R. Vaaler, Rev. R. E. Sanderson, pastor of the Methodist church officiated, using the ring ceremony. The couple entered the parlor to the strains of the wedding march, played by Mrs. Vaaler. The bride was attired in a gray messaline while the groom wore the conventional black.

Immediately after the ceremony the bridal couple, accoompanied by Mr. and Mrs. R. Vaaler, boarded the train for St. Cloud, where Mr. and Mrs. McCombs took the Oriental Limited early in the afternoon for Portland, Oregon. They expect to visit Mrs. McCombs' only sister, who resides in that city with her daughter, Mrs. Geo. McNulty, at Portland, until spring, when they will return to Tampico, Ill., to make their future home.

The bride has many friends at this place and has been visiting her niece, Mrs. Vaaler, the past few weeks. The groom is a stranger to Milaca people but is a man of pleasing personality, and the couple have the best wishes of all of a happy wedded life.

The groom is a brother of contractor J. B. McCombs of this place and is known in Tampico having visited here several times. On one of the visits he met Mrs. Booth and the friendship developed into love and marriage. Mr. McCombs is spoken of very highly at his home in Forreston as a good, reliable gentleman. He intends to engage in the restaurant business here.
