    • Newspaper Article - Thursday, December 29, 1892 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Wedding At Daysville - A very pleasant event took place on Thursday afternoon, December 22, 1892, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Tollerton, of Daysville, New York, when their daughter, Miss Stella, was united in marriage to Mr. Frank Smart, of Richland. At one o'clock p.m. the happy couple, accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. W. O. Ball, cousins of the bride, entered the parlor where they were met by Rev. Mr. Northrup, of South Richland, pastor of the bride, who in a few pleasant and appropriate words, made them one for life. Hearty and sincere were the congratulations which followed, after which a bountiful repast was served. The social time that followed, enlivened with music and singing, seemed all too short. The only event to mar the occasion was the sickness of the groom's sister, Miss Et-tie Smart, who was unable to be present. Only the near relatives of the bride and groom were present After a short wedding trip, Mr. and Mrs. Smart will return and make Daysville their future home. Stella has secured for herself a warm place in the hearts of the people of Daysville, and Frank is also well and favorably known here, and we welcome him into our midst We join with their many friends in wishing them long life and much happiness.
