Clayton Stump Gets "Mail Order Bride" in 1897


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 8/24/1897.

Clayton T. Stump, postmaster at Staten, went up into Clay count a few days ago and brought home with him one of Clay's blushing maids, which he is now pleased to call his wife.  The courtship and wedding was a short romance, they never having met until a day or two before marriage.  They had been corresponding for some time and had exchanged pictures.  We wish them a happy voyage down the stream of time.
