Columbia City Post ~ Saturday April 10, 1920
Mr. Harrison J. Messner and Mrs. Jennie V. Sherwood, well known residents of this city, were united in marriage at the home of the bride on north Main street by Rev. L. A. Luckenbill, Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The license was procured in the forenoon, and this is the second matrimonial venture for each of the contracting parties, death having dissolved the former union in each instance. The bride is a well known and wealthy woman of this city and she recently purchased the handsome home of Henry Outelet, at the corner of Walnut and Market streets, but it is not the intention of the contracting parties to occupy it for the present at least, but they will reside in another property of the bride on North Main street. Mr. Messner has been a farmer the greater part of his life, but for a few years he ran a dray in this city, afterwards moving upon a farm east of town, residing there until the death of his wife, when he returned to this city and has been engaged at various kinds of work since that time. He is well known over the county and has many friends who extend best wishes to him and his bride.
