      ___________________

      Albert and Anna had wanted to marry sooner than they did but when they approached their minister (name unknown), he refused to marry them and suggested that they wait a while. When they approached him a second time, he again refused to marry them. This refusal was due to the fact that Anna's father did not want Anna to marry "a cripple" and had convinced the minister that he should not marry them. Anna had previously worked for Bishop Jonas Snider so they asked him to marry them. He not only conducted the marriage ceremony when Albert married Anna S Shantz, but also performed the marriage ceremony when Albert married Martha G Bauman.

      When the family was away in Toronto, Albert ran out of corn and put the horses on the round treadmill platform to cut some. When he shoved the corn into the cutter it caught his hand and took it off. He ran to the uncle's place, Bert Barbour, who took him to the doctor in Plattsville.
