Wedding Wednesday - Mary Elizabeth Creeden to George J. Fisher

The Ft. Recovery library of Mercer County, Ohio has digitized several local newspapers, including some hard to find issues from the 1890s. This marriage notice for Mary Elizabeth Creeden and George Fisher (usually spelled Fischer) was published in the Mercer County Observer on January 23, 1896.

Married. On Wednesday morning by Rev. Hartman at the St. Marys Catholic church, Geo. J. Fisher, the popular young butcher of Logan street, and Miss Mary Creeden, both of Celina. The young couple left on the afternoon train for Wellington, Ohio, where they will visit relatives for a few days and then return to Celina. May success ever be your lot.

The notice places their wedding date at January 22, 1896. Mary was the daughter of my 2x great-grandfather Timothy Creeden. Mary and George lived in Pueblo, CO for a few years and later settled in Los Angeles, CA. They had three children: Hilda, Beatrice, and Godfrey. Beatrice was married to Paul Kenneth Weddell.
