This marriage took place the same day as the license was issued. The Reverend John Bauer(?), pastor presided. The license application was issued on August 11, 1909 - again the same day. He was living at 1715 Prospect Ave. She was at 1509 Oak. They were both of Kansas City. He was 24 and she was 20.

She appears as Elva Welsh on the marriage license. I am guessing that she was married previously too. Her obituary would demonstrate that. Oddly enough, the bottom half of the license is not filled in. Did they actually get married?

The actual license application was issued the same day as the marriage certificate. Walter signed and said that he was over 21 years old.
A Gertrude Marsh signed for Elva as says that she is 18 years old. I am guessing that 18 was still a minor which required an adult to sign.
