AYRES, H. P. - Married, in Piqua, on Monday morning the 2nd ult., by the Rev. A. Guian, Mr. H. P. Ayres, of this place to Miss E. C. Rowan of Piqua.   October 2, 1839

AYRES, JULIA A. - Married, on the 24th ult., by the Rev. N. Badger, Mr. L. F. Kirk, of Piqua, to Miss Julia A. Ayres, of this place.  October 2, 1839

AYRES, MARY - On the 24th ult., by the Rev. Mr. Badger, pastor of Trinity Church, Troy, Mr. Alexander M. Orbison to Miss Mary Ayres, all of this county.  February 6, 1839  

BARNEY, HARRIET N. - In the town of Dayton, on the morning of July 25th inst., by the Rev. J. B. Moore, Mr. Orsamus Osgood, late of Tuscaloosa, Ala., to Miss Harriet N. daughter of Benjamin Barney, Esq., of Dayton, O.  With the above, we acknowledge the receipt of a comfortable share of the wedding cake.  It is a good beginning, for young married people, to remember the printer.  July 31, 1839

CLIFFORD, LUCRETIA - On the 31st ult., by the Rev. R. Brandriff, Mr. Thomas Jacobs to Miss Lucretia Clifford, all of this county.  February 6, 1839

CULBERTSON, JOSEPH - Married at Springfield, Clarke Co., on Sunday last, Joseph Culbertson, Esq., of this place to Miss Rebecca Harker, of the former place.  September 18, 1939

CULBERTSON, MARY JANE - Married, on Tuesday, the 12th, inst., by the Rev. Norman Badger, Mr. Samuel H. Worrell, to Miss Mary Jane Culbertson, all of this town.  Hymen's Bank safe yet--no suspension here-no stopping payment--no prying Commissioners to report a deficit of the genuine specie.  Another of our swains has bolted from the bachelor's club, and assumed the silken chain of Hymen.  May his "burden be easy and his yoke light," and if they live as happy as we wish them, they will never fall out by the way, nor their offspring lack bread.  Received with the above notice lots of wedding cake, well assorted, and tastefully arranged.  November 13, 1839  

EVANS, E. JANE - Married on Monday morning 25th inst., by the Rev. Bela Fancher, Mr. J. E. Hill, merchant of Fort Wayne, Ia., to Miss E. Jane, daughter of Doctor Evans of Troy.  The luxuries enveloped in the above notice, were abundant, delicious, and very acceptable.  We always hail such a sweet token of remembrance, as an omen of future happiness to the parties.  It is certain to draw from a sentimental editor many good wishes and cordial hopes, that their honey-moon may never want, and that their domestic happiness may increase as they travel on the course of time.  We have often remarked that those who thus remember the printer are never churlish , but always sweet tempered and generous hearted. 

May they in their cottage, near green shady groves;

Enjoy the calm sunshine and cool parting rills--

And may days, months and years, still add to their loves,

As they traverse the lawn with their own little Hills.   March 27, 1839

FAUQUIER, ELIZA ANN - On the 21st inst., by Rev. R. Brandriff, Mr. Abram Sleeth, of Green county, to Miss Eliza Ann Fauquier, daughter of Mr. Thos. Fauquier, of Staunton township.  Happy of course they are, and happy they will be; for amidst their rejoicings, they remembered the printer, in a sizeable chunk of wedding cake.  We will therefore say to them, what we have proved, that

 Love is no wandering vapor

   That lures with wild lambent spark;

Love is no transient lapper

   That lives an hour--and leaves us dark;

But, like the lamp that warmeth

   The Greenland home beneath the snow,

Love's sacred, radiance charmeth,

   When all else is chill below.  November 27, 1839

McLUNG, PAULINA - Married, on Thursday evening last, 14th inst., by the Rev. Mr. Badger, Mr. T. V. W. Youngs, to Miss Paulina McLung.

Prepare the hall--the banquet spread;

More guests approach--by Hymen led,

They come, their solemn faith to plight,

And bid to single life--Good night.

The bridal court adjourns--a happy throng;

Delighted HE--and SHE forever young. 

With the above notice we came in for our share of the wedding cake.  It was a spicy concern and very tasteful--so at least the ladies said, for we generally turn over the investigation of such sweet matters to them.  May their fondest anticipations be realized, and their cup of blessings be ever full.  October 30, 1839
