NEWSPAPER TIDBIT: Danville High School Student Marries In Illinois (1923)

from The Republican (Danville, Indiana) – issue of Thursday, November 15, 1923 – page 1, column 3:

With her school books in her hand, Miss Georgeanna Blair left home ostensibly for school, Thursday morning. Before night, she was the bride of Henry Halfacre, of Pittsboro. He met her in Danville and they drove to Marshall, Ill., where they were married. The evening mail brought a special delivery letter to the bride’s mother, Mrs. Anna Blair, stating that by the time she received the letter she would be Mrs. Halfacre. Mr. and Mrs. Halfacre visited in Illinois until Saturday when they returned to his home at Pittsboro. Sunday, they visited in Danville. They will live with his people, Mr. and Mrs. R.T. Halfacre, for the present. He is employed in Indianapolis. Mrs. Halfacre was a member of the sophomore class, Danville high school. Mr. Halfacre graduated from the Pittsboro high school in 1920 and is 20 years of age.
