There are no words in the English language that can be grouped together that will adequately express our gratitude to our kind neighbors and friends that so tenderly cared for our daughter Grace, both day and night, during her sickness. And when she died they took her and buried her under an avalanche of flowers; and while it was very hard for us to part with our daughter, it is a great consolation to know that we have so many kind neighbor's that were so ready to share our sorrows with us. Such kindness would be hard to parallel.

[from Cemeteries of Cheshire Township, Kyger Cemetery listing: "Tate, Nancy J. w/o J.C. b. Jan. 27, 1840 d. June 27, 1899; Tate, Jas. C. Co. F 192 Ohio Inf.", but I find no listing for Grace.]
The barriers have been broken, and Meigs and Gallia counties have been united.
It has been rumored for some time that this would be the final result, and now the inevitable has come; but we must make haste and tell you about it, for we know you are growing impatient so here is the story:
Mr. Elza Starr, one of Meigs county's nice young men, living in Rutland township, near New Lima, and an enterprising and thrifty farmer, became tired of Pope's "single blessedness" and began to look about for another "Starr" to adorn his household. And just in the upper end of Gallia county, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. John C. Price, the object of Mr. Starr's longings was found. Miss Edith, a highly respected and most estimable lady was chosen as the pearl of greatest PRICE, to be the other STARR, or Mrs. Starr.
It will be remembered that Miss Price has until recently been a competent attendant at the Gallia Children's Home.
This happy couple was united in marriage by Rev. E. D. Murch, at the parsonage of Rutland, at 3 o'clock P. M. Sunday.
The bride and groom launch out on the sea of connubial bliss with high hopes and bright prospects for success. Your correspondent shares with their many friends the pleasure of extending hearty congratulations and best wishes for their future happiness and welfare.
Mr. and Mrs. Starr go directly to house-keeping at the home already prepared for their occupancy, by the thoughtful and judicious groom.
