Dec 21, 1890, The Wyoming Commonwealth, Cheyenne, Cheyenne Co., Wyoming (pg 4):
ROMANTIC COURTSHIP.
A Big Horn Basin Man Wins a Wife by Correspondence.
A Leadville, Colo., correspondent says that Mr. and Mrs. S.W. Hyatt were among the passengers who left Leadville this evening. They were a bridal couple and the marriage, which occurred Thursday night, was quite romantic. On Thanksgiving night, at the residence of Mr. M.A. Cronise, 205 East Seventh street, Rev. J.R. Wood of the Episcopal church of this city united in marriage Mr. Samuel W. Hyatt of Hyattsville, Johnson county, Wyo., and Miss Lizzie Calhoun, of Lisbon, Bedford county, Va. The ceremony was witnessed by a few of the intimate friends of Mr. and Mrs. Cronise.

Mr. Hyatt owns a fine ranch in the Big Horn basin, about ninety miles from the nearest railroad, and has not had the opportunities which some men living in busy towns have possessed in the way of ladies' society. So he conceived the plan about two years ago of advertising for a wife. The advertisement was inserted in an eastern paper and was read by Miss Calhoun. She answered the advertisement, photos were exchanged, and a correspondence started up between the parties. That lasted for nearly two years. Finally, Miss Calhoun came west to visit Mrs. Cronise, and Mr. Hyatt came to Leadville to meet his fiancée, with the result as above stated.
