On Wednesday, February 6, the marriage of Mary C., daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Morgan Link, of the town of Taghkanic, to Mr. Lewis Fingar, occurred at the residence of the bride. The ceremony was performed by the Rev Mr. Empie, and at its conclusion the bride and groom received the congratulations of about seventy guests.
After all had been presented to the happy couple, they were ushered into the dining room, where the menu had been provided. The inclemency of the weather, and the miserable state of the roads, prevented many from being present.
The bride was the recipient [of] many costly and elegant gifts, among others a beautifully designed marble-top stand presented by Mrs. Wilson Potts. Many elaborate and expensive costumes, made purposely for the occasion, were worn. The happy couple took the 10:49 train from Hudson, Thursday morning, for New York. MUCH JOY. - The Register February 15, 1884
