COCHISE REVIEW, SATURDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 23, 1901 (Bisbee, Arizona)

QUIETLY MARRIED.
Wedding of W.C. Greene and Miss Mary A. Proctor.
Mr. W. C. Greene and Miss Mary A. Proctor were married Saturday evening at 9:30 o'clock the rooms of Mr. and Mrs. A.C. Bernard in the Occidental hotel.
The hasty wedding was somewhat of a surprise to the friends of the contracting parties, though it indicates nothing of a specially romantic nature. It had been agreed upon for some time by the parties interested, though dates and final plans had not been made. Miss Proctor has been in Phoenix for some days the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Barnard. Mr. Greene was called here Saturday by court business and also received telegrams which necessitated an early visit to New York. There being no good reason to the contrary they decided on Saturday to tie the knot and make the trip to New York a bridal tour as well as a business visit. Probate Judge Langston was therefore summoned, and after a short ceremony and congratulations of the few friends present they took the 11 o'clock S. P. & P. train for the north.
The groom is well known all over Arizona as a mining man, and his connection with the Cobre Grande litigation has made his name prominent in the territorial press.
The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank L. Proctor of Naco, Arizona, and is a most estimable young lady, particularly well known in Pima county.-Phoenix Republican.
The news of the wedding was received in Bisbee on Monday and came as a big surprise to the friends of the newly married couple. The REVIEW takes special delight in extending congratulations. "Lucky Bill" Greene is indeed a fortunate man, not only in his mining deals, but in choosing a life partner to share in his bright prospects for the future. Miss Maria Proctor is a native of Tucson, where she is well known and one of Tucson's most popular young ladies.

CHARLES WISWALL IS NOW BENEDICT
Friends in this city have received word of the marriage this week of Charles Wiswall of Cananea to Mrs. W.C. Greene of Los Angeles, the marriage taking place in the California city. Both have friends throughout Arizona and in northern Mexico who will be interested to know of their marriage.
Mrs. Greene is the widow of the late Col. W.C. Greene and since the death of the colonel has resided in Los Angeles, though occasionally visiting in Arizona and in Cananea to look after her large business interests. She is a native daughter of this state and her childhood was spent in Tucson, where her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Proctor, were pioneers.
Mr. Wiswall has resided at Cananea for many years and since the death of Colonel Greene has been general manager of the Green Cattle company, the largest cattle holding company in northern Mexico. He is a man of many friends in Mexico and in Arizona and during the long troublesome years in Mexico has managed to retain the good will of leaders of all factions.
Nothing is known here of the plans of Mr. and Mrs. Wiswall for the future, but their many friends will wish them all happiness and prosperity in the future.

1955.- En aquella fecha terminaba la vida de la Señora Mary Greene Wiswall quien fuera la esposa del magnate de las minas de Cananea, William Cornell Greene, este que muriera el día 5 de agosto de 1911 y después de varios años, volvía a casarse con el administrador de los grandes negocios de la familia, el Sr. Charles Wiswaal, este que muriera en el año de 1952. Doña María Green Wiswall sobrevivió a sus dos maridos. Los católicos de Cananea la recuerdan porque fue una persona que ayudó mucho al Padre Ricardo Monge Valenzuela, cuando este siguió la construcción del Templo Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe hasta su terminación. La última donación que se conoce hizo doña María Greene W., a la iglesia, fueron las puertas laterales y las de frente. La vida de esta mujer mexicana de origen, pues su señora madre fue doña Gregoria Álvarez y su Sr. Padre el Sr. Albert Case Benedict, pero quedó huérfana muy pequeña y fue adoptada por la familia de Frank Proctor y a partir de aquello adoptó el apellido Proctor. La vida de esta mujer es muy grande y bonita, sugiero a los historiadores la conozcan y verán que doña María Greene no solo fue la mujer del hombre más poderoso de su tiempo, sino una de las primeras mujeres que trabajaron en el periodismo en los Estados Unidos.
