Letter to Shut-ins, by Inez. K. Waterman
... You shutins would enjoy meeting Barton Leneker who married the pretty Miss Joan Devendorf in June. They now have four children and all reside in Palatine Bridge. Joan and Barton are both active in scout work and are well liked in the community.
Barton's parents are busy observing their anniversary this month and that event took place 45 years ago. Delancey Leneker, 69, and his brown-eyed wife, Edna, reside in Palatine Bridge. They are fun-loving people and useful members of society. Edna, who is the former Edna Eacker, laughingly recalls their wedding trip. They drove to Canada and New York City in a Model T Ford. "It was really something to drive through New York in those days," Edna mused. Deiancey is now retired. He was formerly employed in the gum department of Beech-Nut, Inc., Canajoharie. Both are life long residents of the local area. This couple was married in the Salem Evangelical United Brethren Church of East Stone Arabia. It was the first wedding ceremony ever performed by Rev. Harold J. Wood who served the church at that time and he was elated and often remarked about it.
For the traditional accessories, Edna wore a "new" comb. She had a silver pin that was "old," a new "blue" handkerchief and she "borrowed" a silver bracelet. She has tender memories of that ceremony. Every once in a while she takes from its careful wrappings her white gorgette wedding gown. It had short sleeves and was quite "frilly." Her veil was adorned with orange blossoms. Her husband looked "just wonderful" she recalls fondly. She still has the old-fashioned white shirt he wore with its stiffly starched front and fashionable turned down collar.
