From family notes on how they got married:

"On Nov. 21, 1925, Florence Miller went to Easton (PA) - ostensibly to see a football game. She wasn't surprised, however, when Henry met her at the station. They attended the football game, had dinner together - and later that evening called at the home of Dr. Allan S. Meck, Pastor of St. Mark's Reformed Church in Easton. At 8:00pm, in a simple wedding ceremony, with Mrs. Meck as the only witness, the former Miss Florence Miller became Mrs. Henry Clay Banks."
