From Local Somerset Paper, Thursday, July 21, 1921:

Would-Be Serenaders Foiled:

Ursina, July 20 - Miss Gladys Firestone of Upper Turkeyfoot Township and Charles Gerhard of Draketown were married at the residence of E. D. Thomas, J. P., at 10 o'clock on Monday night. After the ceremony was performed and the happy young couple got ready to seek their home, ther found that the Phillistines were on their track with all kinds of implements of torture, ready to serenade them under the broad canopy of Heaven. But the good Lord, who tempers the winds to the shorn lambs does not forsake the equally helpless newly married kids. He that doeth all things well, sent to the rescue of the "babes in the wood" a "good samaritan, Rober Marshall, bachelor, who bobbed up when his services were required. This good Samaritan did not stop to inquire whether they were married or single, but seeing they were like the man that went down to Jericho and had fallen among roughnecks, he proceeded immediately to aid them and led their horse and buggy to a convenient place in an alley. Squire Thomas, who expects in the near future also to join the army of benedicts, took the blushing bride by the arm and told the groom to catch on, and then led them by devious ways through the bottom lands of the valley of the North Fork, until they found their horse and buggy and, after helping them to go while the going was good. After they got into the buggy they left like a streak of lightning, and the would-be serenaders got left.
