Yeager-Brubaker Wedding (1917)

Columbia City Post ~ Saturday, May 12, 1917

Cloyd L. Yeager, son of Clinton Yeager, near Sidney, and Miss Freda Brubake [sic], daughter of George Brubake [sic], near South Whitley, were married at Hillsdale, Mich., Saturday morning by Justice of the Peace C. M. Weaver, at the court house. They were unattended. They spent Saturday night and Sunday in Fort Wayne returning home Sunday evening. They will reside on the Yeager farm near Sidney.


Note: The article header has her surname as Brubaker but the article has Brubake. I did not find a Freda Brubake/Brubaker in the 1910 census index in Whitley or Huntington County though there is one listed in Madison County, Indiana (page 197/10a) though the 1920 census there (page 71/14a) shows her as a widow named Freda Parker. So she obviously isn't the right person - based on the 1920 census for Fort Wayne, Allen County, Indiana (page 253/7a), which shows Cloyd Yeager and his wife Freda enumerated as lodgers in the household of R. E. Viland. Cloyd is 24 years old, married, born in Indiana, parents born in Indiana. Freda is 24 years old, married, born in Illinois, father born in Ohio and mother born in Illinois.

I haven't pursued the search any further to determine if her surname was Brubake or Brubaker.
