I say that it must have been after April 1891 as she was a widow living with her parents in that census.

This marriage was registered as 009405, on page 112 of 2d volume for marriages for 1885. He is noted as age 23 at the date of the marriage; she 20 which means that she was born before September 1865. If his age is correct, the he must have been born a year earlier than I have noted otherwise. His place of residence is shown as Kansas, U.S.A. at the date of marriage but he was born in West Nissouri Township. She is from West Nissouri. He was a bachelor and she a spinster.

Note    N1064         Index
This marriage is 007562 on page 193 of 3d volume of marriages for the year. There seems to be a problem with their ages as he is shown as 21 and she as 18 - that would make them born in 1868 and 1871 respectively. The address of the place of marriage might be 817 Maple St. The witnesses are William K. Chittedden(?) and Mary Parker(?). They are both Methodists and were married by the Reverend William Parker or Porter(?).

Here is the text of a newspaper clipping:

German - Timms

The home of Mr. and Mrs. and John
Timms, Nissouri, was the scene of
a pleasing event on Wednesday, Dec
28th, when their eldest daughter,
Bessie M., was united in marriage
to Mr. Roy V. German of Arkona.
The ceremony was performed by the
Rev. Mr. Gilmour of Granton. The
bride entered the parlor leaning on
the arm of her father, to the strains
of the wedding march rendered by
Miss B. German of Wellburn, and
looked charming in a gown of cream
nunsveiling with silk trimmings and
carried a white prayer book. The
bride was attended by her sister,
Miss Nellie, who was dressed in
cream nunsveiling with chiffon trim-
mings while the groom was support-
ed by Mr. James Forest of Granton.
The bridal party stood under
an arch of evergreens and holly.
There were guests to the number
of about thirty. After the ceremony
was performed and congratulations
had been extended, the guests re-
paired to the dining room where a
sumptuous repast was served. The
many and costly presents at-
tested the esteem in which the young
couple are held. The happy young
couple left on the following day on
the afternoon train for Arkona,
where they will reside in the future.
The bride's travelling dress was
broadcloth with hat to match and
sable furs. The Journal extends con-
gratulations.
