Birth: Dec. 25, 1867
Death: Mar. 19, 1947

From the November 4, 1898 Skidmore Standard, page 1:
We record this week the marriage of Miss Lydia E. Parrish to George Manchester, two estimable young people of our little city, Squire Hasty saying the impressive words which made them man and wife."

It was a very quiet and rather unique affair. The contracting parties spent the day in moving and arranging their household effects. At 8 o'clock, p.m. Squire Hasty was called in and they were married in the presence of the brides sisters Mrs. Fred Parshall, Misses Grace and Ruth Parrish, and her cousin, Miss Hattie Branum.

The bride is the daughter of J. V. Parrish and is one of Nodaway county's best known and most successful teachers, having taught in the Graham and Skidmore public schools and also several country schools.

The bridegroom is a young man of sterling qualities and is well and favorably known throughout the community. He holds a position as clerk with Sewell & Co, one of our leading business firms.

The Standard wishes them the success which they merit."
