George and Monroe Tucker, 23 year old twins, were married in Frankfort last week, under amusing circumstances, to Warnie Dickey, aged 16, and Mattie Dickey, aged 18, sisters.  The couples reside at Millville, and had gone to Frankfort for holiday shopping, when Monroe and Mattie decided to get married.  They went to secure the license while George and Warnie went in search of a minister.  While looking for one they, too, decided to get married and while the ceremony of linking Monroe to Mattie was going on, they slipped out and got a license and were married immediately afterwards.

Dr. John L. Cox and Miss Vivian Stamper, both of this place, were married at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. G. B. Stamper, Christmas morning.  Both these young people come of prominent families, the bride being the daughter of our present county attorney, and the groom the son of Dr. B. D. Cox.  On the same day, at Jeffersonville, Indiana, Corsa Horton, of Campton, and Miss Gertrude Crawford, of Athol, were married.  The writer joins with the many friends of these four young people in wishing for them long lives of happiness.

Married, on the 24th, at the residence of Harry Nickell, on Grassy, Will Alexander and Miss Grace Nickell.  The Herald joins in congratulations.

Silas Helton and Nannie Goad were married on the 9th at Flat Gap.

Dr. J. D. Whitaker and Miss Dora Lykins were married at Cannel City Sunday, January 20, after a courtship of 15 years.  Our girls say this is very encouraging, because if they could love a man for 15 years before marriage they feel that they’d have no fears after the knot was tied.
