Nettie, is the daughter of Edward Archer and Mary Compton. She married John Slonecker on 20 Mar 1895. They had 3 children; Lloyd, Ninna and Frank.

Wedding Day:

From the Seward Independent
March 23, 1895

Miss Nettie F. Archer and John T. Slonecker were united in marriage at the Presbyterian church in this village at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Rev. T.A. Hull of Seward performing the ceremony in the presence of a crowded sanctuary of invited friends. The bride is the second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E.C. Archer and has lived all her young life in this vicinity in fact on the same quarter section of land. The groom is the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. H.F. Slonecker, and he too has passed his life hereabouts. After the ceremony, a few intimate friends and relatives gave the happy couple an impromptu reception at the home of the brides parents, and I learn that a large number of their male friends tendered them a rousing and melodious concert, with tin pan accompaniment, later on.

The evening was devoted to a reception of their young friends who assembled to the number of forty-five, and played croquet and other games until a very late hour. Refreshments were served, and after all had partaken, the brideās cake was passed, and the groom passed a box of cigars around to his gentleman friends, after which a large number of guests formed a procession and accompanied the bride and groom to their own home, at the grooms parents.

Their many friends will wish them a happy and long life of wedded felicity, and may their pathway be strewn with roses. The following is a partial list of presents received.
