From the Hanover Journal, 22 May, 1907
Hiram S. Hunt and Miss Brookie Maye Keene, both of Hanover, were united in the Holy bands of matrimony at the M.E. parsonage, in Galena, Ill, Wednesday morning, May 15th, 1907.
Rev. J. A. Matlack, officiating.
The marriage of the young couple was not entirely unexpected to their many Hanover friends, although few had thought that the event would occur quite so soon, but they stole a march on the knowing ones by driving to Galena to have the knot tied.
The bride is the oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Keene of this village and she has been a resident of Hanover all her life. She is well known as an industrious and energetic young lady of pleasing address and has hosts of friends here.
The groom is the oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Hunt, who reside on a farm a few miles south of town. He is one of our most enterprising and industrious young farmers and well versed in farming and the raising of blooded cattle and horses.
The young couple will commence married life on a farm where they had everything in readiness to commence housekeeping.
The JOURNAL joins the many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Hunt in best wishes for a long and prosperous marital voyage.
