Frankie GENTRY Secretly Marries in Kentucky (1915)

From the Danville Gazette (Danville, Indiana) - issue of Thursday, March 25, 1915 - page 1, column 2:

Frankie Gentry Slipped Away to Kentucky Last Week and Became Wife of Indianapolis Man

Miss Frankie Gentry, daughter of Sheriff J.W. Gentry, was married on Tuesday afternoon of last week to R.E. Trimble of Indianapolis. The wedding took place at Henderson, Ky. It was the intention of the young couple to keep the event a secret for a time, but fate was against them. Soon after the marriage was solemnized the young couple met an acquaintance who guessed the truth and then they wanted to be the first to tell of their new happiness. Thus the secret was not kept.

The wedding was the outcome of a friendship formed several years ago when the young couple met at the home of a friend in Indianapolis.

The groom resides at 2640 North Meridian Street, Indianapolis. He is connected with the Western Oil Refining Co., and has a traveling position. The young couple have not completed their plans for the future. The bride has been called home by the illness of her mother, who is suffering from a slight attack of pneumonia. She will remain here until her mother is fully recovered.

  1. Hello, I am looking for descendants of the Frankie Gentry and/or R.E. Trimble who are interested in genealogy. I have photographs and a book on the Gentry Family. My Grandmother married into this family and I would like to find a descendant I can give these items too.
