Van Lieu-Swayzee Marriage (1859)

Columbia City News ~ Thursday, November 10, 1859

Married. On the 3d inst. at the residence of D. S. Swayzee in Thorncreek Township, Whitley County, by the Rev. Mr. Edmundson, Mr. Dennis Van Lieu to Miss Angelina Swayzee, all of Whitley County. With the above notice came an assortment of delicious cake to cheer the weary printers; all hands gathered around the much welcome pile of cake and with glad heart and merry laugh did ample justice to the same. When all were through with the pleasant task, our devil licked his fingers, smacked his lips and wished that Dennis and Angelina would get married every day. The happy bride will accept the thanks of the office – may she and her Dennis live long and happy on earth; and when they shall have filled their destiny, comforted and consoled each other through life, then may they come to the end in peace, and never regret their union.
