THE WESTERN STAR, 22 February 1896
Marriage of
Marriage of Chas. J. Polley and Miss Ora Hill.

The wedding of the week occurred on the line of Comanche and Clark counties, Wednesday evening at 8 o'clock, at the residence of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. M. J. Hill. The contracting parties were Mr. Chas. J. Polley, a popular young farmer and stock man of Protection township, and Miss Ora Hill. The words that made the couple man and wife were pronounced by Rev. Gordon, of Ashland, in a beautifully worded ceremony. A large number of invitations had been issued for the occasion, and the lovely weather was an extra inducement to bring quests from far and near, and the house was filled; something like 70 persons being present. After congratulations were extended all around, supper was announced at 9 o'clock, and it was near eleven before all had regaled themselves of a bountress meal, as the tables were not large enough to seat the crowd, only by turns. The wedding party broke up about one o'clock and the guests returned to their homes after having spent a most pleasant evening.

The Star joins with the many friends of the happy pair in wishing them a long and happy life.

The following bridal presents were received: Oscar Murray, set of goblets; Mr. and Mrs. Wuchter, a pair of towels; Sadie Moore and Harry Hewston, crystal water set; Juston-Cook, lamp; Mattie Fish, table cloth; Mamie Ellington, pickle dish; Mr. and Mrs. Ellington, berry dish; Mr. Taylor, table; Eva and Erkle Myers, jelly stand; Mrs. Stokes, can of baking powder; Mr. and Mrs. Cook, knives and forks; Cora Taylor, pickle dish; Mr. and Mrs. Gordon, linen table cloth; E.
