Harner/Bedinger - wedding:
The following is a wedding announcement dated 1893, possibly from the Berrien Springs Journal? Frank A. Harner and Maggie Bedinger were both 21 years of age when they married on 04 Jan 1893 in Oronoko Township of Berrien County, Michigan. Frank A. Harner was the son of William H. and Mary Ann (Feather) Harner. William Harrison Harner was the son of Michael and Sophia (Plank) Harner.

“Married, Wednesday evening, Jan. 4, at the home of the bride’s father, by Rev. S. P. Fryberger, Frank A Harner and Maggie, daughter of Martin S. Bedinger. The high contracting parties to this affair were born and raised in the neighborhood where they live and in which they propose to live in the future. They are among the best respected young people in Oronoko and it was to be expected that numerous friends should assemble to see them launched on what they all hoped might prove the placid sea of matrimony.
