A Bride and Groom in Hard Luck in 1901

A newspaper clipping from Corning Journal -February 20,1901 when there were still passenger trains on the New York Central Railroad from Corning, NY to Lock Haven, Penna.  (passing through Presho and Town of Lindley)   (Found on the Fulton Newspaper Archives Web site)

                                            From Wednesday's Daily Journal

              A bride and groom of this city have had their troubles in going on a wedding trip. They were to leave on the 6:30 train going South on the Central last night and after waiting at the station for awhile they concluded not to go as the train was 3 hours late.
            They were on hand at 6 o'clock this morning for the Central train which did not leave Corning until 9:30 on account of a wreck at Presho. They were also delayed at Presho until
12 o'clock today.  We hope their trip will be all the more pleasant as a poor beginning makes a good ending for the Young groom and his bride.

Archie Miller Store -Presho and Rt.15
Donated by Marion (Adsit ) Brion
The Miller store and barn in the upper photo are no longer there. These buildings would have been  north of the Methodist Church on the same side of  U.S. 15 before the 4 lane highway opened in 1970. In the Lindley history  -Looking Back 200 years 1790-1990,Virginia Kittel and Derma Ward reminisced about the stores that they remembered in Presho. Virginia remembered the Miller store and a blacksmith shop across the road. She, also, mentioned Mrs. Atwell's store that was across from the Methodist Church . Buying candy there for a Penny there was one of her memories. .
