Fred & Lula Get Married
Freddie and Lula Thomas were wed at the Shannon Hotel in Pawnee City, Nebraska since they were building the new courthouse.
The newspaper account read:
They were married at 8:00am with Judge Barton performing the ceremony in
quiet fashion. The bride's parents and sister attended as well as Groom's parents. The couple went to Gretna, KS. on Wednesday for their honeymoon
Gossip in the family indicates that Fred and Lula were very poor during the first part of their marrage.
So poor infact that Fred's father (Frederick George Mathias) had to bring them food on a regular basis so they wouldn't starve!
