The matrimonial market has been lively since our last, and stock has gone up, we quote - on Thursday 13th inst. Mr. Chris Runkle, of Madison township, to Miss Matilda Bickle, of Pike township, and on the same day by Rev Philip Lemaster, Mr. William Wilson, of Pike, to Miss Jane Lemaster, of Madison. We think the boys have made a fair exchange and provided themselves with warm comforters, may theirs be a happy lot, and they never regret the day they started on their matrimonial voyages.
The Jane Lemaster mentioned is Phebe Jane Lemasters (1847- ), daughter of Rev. Luman Walker and Nancy (Young) LeMasters. The minister, Philip Lemasters (1836-1915) was her older brother. William and Jane lived in Pike and Jackson Township, Jay County, Indiana after their marriage.
