Lincoln Co. MO Marriages (1898)

Transcribed from the Troy Free Press, Friday, Jan. 13, 1899, page 3, by Rob. Taylor

A Considerable Gain is Made in the Number of Marriage Licenses Issued Last
Year The Happy Couples.
Lincoln county points with pride to the record made by sly Dan Cupid
during the year 1898. While most neighboring counties report a falling
off in events matrimonial we are pleased to announce that in old Lincoln
the gain has been most pronounced. The recorder's office, where a record
is kept of all licenses issued, reveals this fact. In 1897 there were
issued 137 marriage licenses, but in 1898 this was increased to 166, a
gain of over 20 per cent. Young men and young women and other folks, too,
who live outside of this county and whose love affairs have not prospered,
are invited to come to the fair land of Lincoln, where Hymen has taken up
his home and where Cupid frisks and frolics from dawn till dewy eve. Now
some of our Republican friends will at once rush to the front and say that
this increase in marriages is a sure sign of prosperity's arrival. Quite
the contrary, though. Sensible people declare that young men usually
marry when their burden of poverty becomes too heavy to be carried alone
that they then hie themselves forth and persuade some brave girl to share
their burden. But be as it may, Lincoln county is proud of its
matrimonial record and proposes to keep up the good work during this
coming year. The parties to whom licenses were issued last year are given
below with the date preceding the names.
