--------- Wade, Gladys R. (Marriage - 16 JUL 1908)
Married, at the home of the bride's sister, Mrs. S. L. Demouth, in Christie, Miss Gladys Rose Wade of the town of Eaton, Clark County, Wis. to Mr. Amos Charles Davis of Galesburg, Ill., on Thursday, July 16, 1908, at high noon, rev. Towne of Loyal officiating.
The young couple was attended by Roy A. Pierce and Miss Winifred E. Pierce, brother and sister of the bride. Little Musa Demouth, niece of the bride, acted as ring bearer and flower girl. Only immediate relatives of the bride were present. The house was prettily decorated with ferns and roses.
The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Frank Pierce of Pioneer Farm near Greenwood, Clark County and has grown to womanhood in our midst and will be greatly missed by her many friends here. The groom is the only son of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Davis of Galesburg, Ill., and although a stranger to most of us he is highly spoken of by those who have made his acquaintance.
After the ceremony a bounteous repast was served and the happy couple took the evening train at Neillsville for Winona and other points. They will be at home to their friends after Sept. 1st at Galesburg, Ill.
That long life and true happiness may attend these new voyages is the wish of their many friends.

Name spelled Gladys, Glaydes, Glaydis.

Postcard from Aunt Gladyes to her niece Mable Braden Adams, postmark Mar 1955 Downs, KANS., copy in files of D.Z.Stevens:
Dear Ones - I got a message Feb. 27 that your Aunt Mabel had passed away that A.M. The funeral was to be Mar.2 in P.M. I did not go as I was not well enough and the weather uncertain. I would rather remember her as I last saw her at your old home down on the creek in the year you were born. Isn't it dreadful for sisters to be parted that long? Have you seen Uncle Roy lately? He (doesn't?) write so I know nothing about him. We are the only ones left of the family circle. We are having spring like weather after some very severe cold winter. Expect we will have some more before Mar. is gone. Amos and I both have high blood pressure so do not feel too good. Have to diet, no salt at all. Hope you are all well and enjoying your new daughter. Love to all.
Lovingly, Aunt Gladyes
