Garden Grove Express
Wednesday, December 12, 1894
Garden Grove, Iowa

Miss Tilda MILLS, of Leon, and Mr. MCKEE of Garden Grove were united in
marriage at the Presbyterian parsonage, Wednesday, November 28, 1894 Rev. GURLEY
officiating. This couple is well known especially the bride, who is the
daughter of W. H. MILLS, one of the successful farmers of Eden township. Miss Tilda
is one of Eden's most exemplary young ladies, and will be greatly missed by
the young people as a leader of the society. She is one of Decatur county's
most popular school teachers. During her time in the field, she put forth such
efforts that the good example she put before the public in her school room will
be hard to fill. She finished the course of the Decatur county Institute in
June 1894. By her modest and pleasant manner she has won many friends. Mr.
MCKEE, although not personally acquainted with him, we understand is a young
man of good habits, an industrious farmer, and a successful stock raiser. He is
the owner of a valuable farm near Garden Grove, where the happy couple will
make their future home. May they live a long happy life together. - Reporter.
