Wedding - Stein-Cronkhite
A very pretty wedding was solemnized at the residence of D. C. Jones on New York Avenue, at 4:00 o'clock Monday afternoon, when Miss Martha Stein became the bride of Hugh D. Cronkhite. Only a few intimate friends and members of the family were present.
Rev. John H. Murray performed the ceremony. Both of these young people are residents of Highrolls and are well known and popular.
Miss Stein for a long while made her home with the Joneses. Mr. Cronkhite is a Superintendent for the Highrolls Development Company farm.
