Taken from MA Leeson's History of Stark County - 1887


“In February, 1834,” says Mrs. Shallenburger, “there was a wedding at the house of James Holgate, of which we can still learn something. This was between a gentleman by the name of McClure and a sister of Mrs. Holgate, Miss Marsh. The guests were Mr. and Mrs. Sylvanus Moore, Mr. and Mrs. Greenleaf Smith, Mr. and Mrs. John Dodge, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Seeley and Jesse Heath. Whether Squire Smith or some wandering preacher performed the ceremony, Mr. Holgate did not inform us, but said he had, in 1834, but a cabin sixteen feet square, and well filled with the usual comforts of pioneer life. They took the door from its hinges to add to the table, and as the weather was mild for the season, the men stood outside while the feast was spread. Then “bee gums” were brought in and puncheons laid on them for seats, and they had an excellent dinner, no scarcity of anything but room. The repast over, the men had again to retire to the 'sky parlor' until the table could be cleared and the door restored to its place, when they all managed to get inside and had a gay time. But the toilets must be left to the imagination of the reader.”

The first marriage license in this county was issued by the first clerk, over forty years ago. We give the form of the license and certificate in full:

STATE OF ILLINOIS, STARK COUNTY, ss.--

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and private seal (there being no official seal provided) at Osceola, this 16th day of April, A. D. 1839.

OLIVER WHITAKER
