Schemmer-Richter, Nuptials.

On Wednesday morning of this week at 9:30 o'clock there occurred at St. Mary's church the ceremony which united in the holy bonds of matrimony Mr. Albert Schemmer and Miss Kate Richter, Rev, Father-Phelan officiating.

After the ceremony at St, Mary's the bride and groom and near relatives and friends went to the home of the groom's parents in this city where all partook heartily of a most delicious wedding breakfast. At the home of the bride's parents northwest of town, an equally appetizing dinner was served later, and in the afternoon and evening a reception was given by Mr. and Mrs. Richter in honor of the newly wedded couple, at which there were present a large number of their many friends.

This is a most auspicious union. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Will Richter and one of the noblest and most charming young ladies in our community. She has an amiable and sweet disposition and is loved by all.

The groom is a worthy son of our honored townsman, Henry Schemmer, and is one of our most reliable, thrifty and prosperous business men.

The many friends of both the contracting parties will join in wishing Mr. and Mrs. Albert Schemmer a long and happy voyage o'er the matrimonial sea.

Albert Schemmer moved Monday into his new home over on Aristocratic Avenue, into what has been the First Reformed parsonage. Rev. Englesman moved into the house vacated by Mr. Schemmer, Wednesday. As soon as each can get settled, they will be nicely situated.

Editor's Note : The house mentioned here would become known as "The Schemmer House" staying in the family for 100 years. From Mr. and Mrs. Albert Schemmer to Mrs. and Mrs. Clarence Keegan and finally to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Richter. The Richters moved out of the house in the fall of 2006.
