Marriage of Ona Zoe Snodgrass
December 6, 1900 (newspaper not named, probably the Crestline Advocate)

Married --- Last Wednesday evening Rev. Upp opened the prayer meeting in the M.E. church, and after reading the scripture lesson for the evening, offered prayer and commented briefly upon the scripture, turned the meeting into the hands of a leader and excused himself for the balance of the evening. It was rumored that he had a wedding party on hand but who the contracting persons were remained a mystery. It later developed that he was met at the parsonage by G.W. Keller and Ona Z. Snodgrass who desired to be made one. Rev. Upp soon united the happy couple in the bonds of matrimony. The bride and groom will make their home on what is known as the Talbott farm south of town. Their friends extend best wishes for their future.
