On Jan. 12, 1858, Leanna was united in marriage to John Ginder in Havana, Mason Co., Illinois. He died Jan. 16, 1900, in Rice Lake and both he and Leanna are buried in the Ginder family plot in Nora Cemetery. Their children were: Augusta, Mary Ellen & Ellen Leanna Ginder, b. June 14, 1861. Augusta married Amos C. Nichols, Mary Ellen married Horace W. Drake, and Ellen Leanna married William W. Dietz.

At the time of their marriage Mahlon was a Real Estate and Insurance Agent in Rice Lake. Mahlon was born October 22, 1836, in Walton, Delaware County, New York, son of Alfred C. Barry, D.D., and Adaline Robertson, both also born in New York. He died May 23, 1911, at Rice Lake, aged 74 years, 7 months and 1 day, and was buried there in Orchard Beach Cemetery.

M. P. Barry and Mrs. Leanna M.
Ginder Married at 5 p.m. Monday-
Go to Chicago on Wedding Trip-
No Danger of Their Baggage Going
Astray as It Was Well Marked-"At
Home" in This City After June 14.

The marriage of M. P. Barry and Mrs. Leanna M. Ginder took place at the residence of the bride Monday afternoon at 5 o/clock. The wedding being a private one none but the relatives and immediate friends of the bride and groom were present. The ceremony that made the two one was performed by Rev. Koons and was followed by a wedding dinner.

Mr. and Mrs. Barry are both too well known to need any introduction to our readers, having lived here for many years, and are well and favorably known. The Chronotype joins their many friends in wishing them many years of happiness and prosperity. They will spend the week at Chicago and other points of interest going to Chippewa Falls to attend the State G.A.R. encampment next week and will be at home to their many friends after June 14, 1903.

Mr. and Mrs. Barry may have thought prior to Monday evening that the people here took no interest in them, but this is not true, as there was a great crowd at the depot to seen them off, the entire platform being crowded with ladies and gentlemen. The baggage of the newly married couple was duly decorated with all the known and some hitherto unknown inscriptions and appendages. Enough rice was scattered through the crowd and on the platform to make many a good meal. If Mr. and Mrs. Barry were at all careful in saving what lodged in and about their clothing they will have enough for soups and puddings for many moons.

A great joke on some of those that decorated the baggage was that they glued a showy placard to a grip that did not belong to the bridal party and it was interesting to see them try to remove it. We extend our sympathy to Mr. and Mrs. Barry for any annoyance that they may have felt, but they are both old enough to have known how it would be.
