     At 11:30 yesterday morning [29 August 1889] in St. Paul's Church in this village, Miss Elizabeth M. Linsenbarth of this village was married to Mr. John H. Claxton of Yonkers, NY.  There were no bridesmaids.  Messrs. Frederick E. and Henry F. Linsenbarth were ushers.  The bride was given away by Mr. Frederick E. Linsenbarth, the bride's brother.
     She wore a traveling costume of brown satin trimmed with forget-me-not lace, with hat to match.  She carried a bouquet of China Asters and wore a corsage of white lilies.  The Rev. M.L. Wooley performed the ceremony and Miss Lizzie Lambert played the wedding march.
     The church was beautifully decorated with flowers, the loving work of the bride's many friends and former schoolmates with whom she was a universal favorite.  Directly after the ceremony the happy couple left for their future home in Yonkers, amid a shower of rice and well wishes for their future happiness.
