Frankton Weekly Enterprise, May 14th, 1886

Miss Viola Carpenter and Isom Ault, formerly of this location, were married in Kansas not long ago, having to send to this county for license, as they had no blacksmith in their county (Sherman) to manufacture them. (Also) We would like to heve a Kansas letter from Sanford, John and Isom Ault to The Enterprise, to hear what they have to say about the country.
