Married – Upson-Poe – by the Rev. John Clarke, at the house of D. R. Davis, Esq., Mr. Alonzo Upson to Miss Margaret L. Poe; all of this county.

There was a large party at Mr. Davis’ house and the occasion is said to have been one of genuine enjoyment – Our best compliments to Mrs. Davis and hearty good wishes to Mr. Upson and lady. The Schuyler Citizen, January 4, 1860.

This gift was doubly relished from being presented by fair hands. We shall look for another cake ere long. The Schuyler Citizen, January 4, 1860.
