Leon Reporter, Leon, Iowa
Thursday, December 30, l897

Yesterday evening at the home of the bride's parents in Princeton, Mo., occurred the marriage of MR. GEO. HAMILTON, of this city, and MISS NELLIE BOWSHER.

The bride is the daughter of MR. and MRS. RUSH BOWSHER, wealthy and highly esteemed citizens of Princeton. She is a beautiful young lady, one who will be welcomed to our city, and we are sure will soon make a large circle of intimate friends.

The groom is the senior member of the dry goods firm of Hamilton & Gammill, one of the most promising young business men of Leon, who has firmly established himself as one of the leading merchants. He is well and favorably known not only in this city but all over Decatur County, and has many friends who congratulate him on securing such a charming bride, even if he had to go to another state to find her.

MR. and MRS. HAMILTON will arrive from Princeton this afternoon and will go to housekeeping at once in the Jackson Wise property on East 11th Street. They will be "at home" to friends after Jan. l0th.

The happy couple will be warmly welcomed into Leon society, and a host of friends wish them a happy and prosperous life -- one long continued never-ending honeymoon.
