     Several Kinsearching columns in February, March, and April of 2015 contain data pertaining to the HAMLIN family in Iowa and their relatives and friends. Here is another fragile clipping, probably from an Iowa newspaper and apparently dated early April 1933, found in the Opal and Lester Saffell family papers, currently held in a private collection in Lubbock, Texas. (Some punctuation, capital letters in proper names, and other letters have been added or deleted for clarity and readability. All-caps for surnames are used for emphasis.)

Secret Marriage Announced

“Mr. and Mrs. Bert NEWMAN entertained twenty guests at a dinner party at their home Friday night at which time the secret marriage of Miss Helen SHIRES of Elliott and Mr. Claude HAMLIN of Red Oak, was announced. The wedding took place nearly a year ago on April 16, 1932, at Hayti, S. D. The bride, who is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S. D. SHIRES of Elliott, is a teacher at Schleswig, Ia. The groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. A. R. HAMLIN of Red Oak. He is employed with the Standard Oil Company and is located at their station at Sixth and Washington Avenue. The young couple did not announce their future plans. Guests at the Newman home included:

     After the dinner, the jolly group took the bride and groom for a ride, the party ending up at Shenandoah.”
