NEWSPAPER TIDBIT: Lake County Couple Marries in Danville (1925)

from The Republican (Danville, Indiana) – issue of Thursday, October 15, 1925 – page 1, column 1:

When Miss Mary Conapoetis, pretty Greek girl at Gary, was returning home from the picture show, Monday evening with her mother, an automobile containing three men dashed up to the walk. Mary was seized, thrust into the car which disappeared at terrific speed. The story was spread that there had been a mysterious kidnapping.

When Mary next appeared she was in company with Frank Fetsis, also a Greek, in the clerk’s office in Danville. Frank and Mary applied for a marriage license and Mary’s application said she lived at Brownsburg. They were married by Rev. F.H. Longwell. There was no kidnapping, just a scheme to be married, perhaps the Grecian way.
