Christian & Unknown Silistia

Marry On An Auto
Couple Are Doubly Wed to Comply With the Law

Sioux Falls, SD, Oct. 15 - The courtship of Christian Silistia, a prominent young business man of Parkston, and the woman of his choice, who came from Iowa for the purpose of uniting her fortunes with those of the young South Dakotan had a romantic termination. They were twice married within an hour, the second time in an automobile while speeding over a country road at the rate of forty-five miles an hour.

With the idea of surprising the friends and relatives of the groom at Parkston, Mr. Silistia, after procuring a marriage license, met his sweetheart at Scotland, Bon Homme county, where they made their way to the home of Rev. A. M. Thurston, who pronounced them man and wife. While the marriage certificate was being prepared it was discovered by the clergyman that the marriage license had been issued in Hutchinson county, of which Parkston is one of the principal towns. As the state law requires marriage ceremonies to be performed in the county in which a license is issued, the bride and groom were greatly perplexed as to what course they could adopt in order to make their marriage legal and binding.

When they were at their wits' end, the clergyman's wife came to their rescue by suggesting that they induce Dr. Seagley, a Scotland physician, to take the wedding party in his automobile and proceed with all haste across the border to Hutchinson county. The bride and groom, with the clergyman and physician, were bundled into the automobile, which was soon speeding in the direction of the Hutchinson county line, only a few miles away. Soon the party had entered Hutchinson county while the automobile was gliding over a public highway, a new marriage ceremony was performed, and the couple had the pleasure of knowing that the state law had been strictly complied with.

Omar & Miranda (Gustafson) Terry

A married man was indicted last month and charged with bigamy after allegedly marrying a woman after having already been married.

Omar Terry, 37, of Spencer, was married to Miranda Gustafson on Sept. 20, 2008, in Tyndall, court documents state, but Terry was already married to Claudia Perez at that point.

On Feb. 4, Terry was indicted and charged with bigamy, a Class 6 felony, punishable upon conviction by up to two years in prison and a $4,000 fine.

According to Mitchell Patrol Officer Dan Fechner, Terry and Gustafson were preparing for divorce, and Gustafson reported Terry's alleged crime on Nov. 12 to the Mitchell Police Division. It is unknown if Gustafson knew Terry was married at the time of their wedding.

Fechner then interviewed Terry, and Terry allegedly admitted to the offense.

Bon Homme County State's Attorney Lisa Rothschadl also filed a habitual offender charge against Terry due to his felony record.

According to court documents, Terry was convicted of burglary of habitation-theft from a structure or vehicle adapted for overnight accommodation-a second-degree felony, on Nov. 26, 1999, in San Antonio Texas. After that, he was convicted of vehicle theft valued between $1,500 and $20,000 on Nov. 29, 2000, also in San Antonio. Finally, Terry pleaded guilty to identity theft, a Class 6 felony, in Yankton County on May 28, 2007.

Per South Dakota law, a habitual offender charge in which a person has been convicted of three or more non-violent offenses enhances the current felony charge by two levels, court documents state.

The habitual offender charge, if substantiated, would bump the bigamy charge to a Class 4 felony, punishable upon conviction by up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.

Rothschadl declined to comment but said Terry has not yet been arrested. A warrant was issued, and Terry is to be held on a $2,000 bond.

Man sentenced to four months in jail for marrying two women

TYNDALL - A McCook County man charged with bigamy was sentenced to 120 days in jail last week.

Omar Terry, 37, of Spencer, was sentenced on May 13 to two years in prison, suspended to 120 days in jail, and was placed on probation for two years after pleading guilty to bigamy - marrying someone while still wed to another - on May 10.

Terry was indicted for the class 6 felony on Feb. 4. According to court documents, Terry married Miranda Gustafson on Sept. 20, 2008, in Tyndall, but he was already married to Claudia Perez at that time.

Gustafson reported Terry's crime on Nov. 12, according to the Mitchell Police Division, while the two were preparing for divorce. It is unknown if Gustafson knew Terry was married on the date of their wedding.

A habitual offender charge - which increases the penalty of other charges - was dismissed. Bon Homme County State's Attorney Lisa Rothschadl originally filed the habitual offender charge because Terry has been convicted of three prior felonies: burglary and vehicle theft in Texas and identity theft in Yankton County.

William & Carrie (Robinson) Wilson

On the morning of the 30th day of June, at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Robinson, occurred the marriage of Wm. G. Wilson and Carrie L. Robinson. The house was decorated in seasonable novelties and embellished with flowers and plants. At the hour of 10:15 a.m., the bride and groom preceded by little Helen, sister of the bride, bearing the ring within the petals of a rose, entered the room to the music Lohngrin's "Wedding March," played by Mrs. Flora Freeman, sister of the groom. They stood under a beautiful arch made of green decorated with white syringas blossoms, from which hung a lovers knot made of white. Here they were met by the officiating clergyman, Rev. Chas. E. Wilcox and with the beautiful ring ceremony each plighted troth to the other while the sweet tones of music floated from the piano.

The bride was dressed in Paris Lawn, trimmed in lace, worn with a beautiful sash of white satin. In her hand she carried a bouquet of beauteous bride roses. One of the ornaments she wore was a pearl pin that was the gift of her father to her mother and was worn by her mother on her wedding day. She also wore her mother's wedding slippers. The groom wore the conventional black.

After congratulations and good wishes had been extended, two solos entitled, "To My First Love" and "You'd Better Ask Me," were beautifully rendered by Miss Ethel Haynes.

While the happy couple and the guests enjoyed themselves in conversation a bountiful wedding breakfast was prepared and served, the dining room being decorated with pink and white. When all were seated at the table, Miss Eugenia Parmenter sang, "Oh promise Mr: in her sweet way. After the blessing was asked by Rev. Wilcox, the company proceeded to do justice to the good things which were served by three lady friends of the bride. The bride's cake contained the usual hidden treasures of thimbles, ring and penny which will undoubtedly prognosticate the future of those who found the various articles in the individual pieces. So the friends of Mr. Robinson will be sorry to learn that he secured the thimble; Rev. Wilcox the ring and Mrs. Frank Wilson the penny. At the conclusion of the repast a carriage was in waiting at the door which took the bridal party to the depot in time to catch the showers of rice and congratulations which were waiting them, and also incidentally to take the north bound train. The traveling suits were all of gray with hat and gloves to match. The honeymoon will be spent amidst the beauties and coolness of the Black Hills region.

This was the consummation of one of the happiest events. The bride and groom are among the best respected and most promising of the young people of Scotland, and seem in every way suited to one another.

The bride has grown up in Scotland and has a great multitude of sincere friends whom she has won by her true sweet womanly ways. The groom became one of the business men of Scotland about four years ago and has by his business integrity won a strong position for himself in the business world of Scotland. By the uprightness of his life he has won a place in the esteem of his townsmen.

Mr. and Mrs. Wilson have rented the Reich property across from the Presbyterian church, where they will be at home after the 18th of August.

The prospect seems very brights and promising for these young people and we join with the rest in calling down upon them the brightest and richest blessings of heaven.

Out of town guests were Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Bruntlette, of Wessington Springs, S.D.; Mr. and Mrs. Frank Wilson, of Audubon, IA., and Mrs. Floyd Wilson, of Manilla, Ia.

Ellery & Elsie (Bardwell) Wilcox

A very quiet, unique and romantic marriage was solemnized Sunday afternoon on the banks of the James River in the grove a miles and a half south east of the Maxwell Mennonite Colony. Standing upon a carpet of beautiful green dotted in profusion by the crimson, fallen leaves, over shadowed by the beautiful trees, and surrounded by the nearest and dearest of earthly friends, E. V. Wilcox of Sioux City and Miss Elsie Bardwell of Scotland pledged their troth each to other with the beautiful ring ceremony, Rev. Wilcox being the officiating clergyman. These young people had a desire not to be always bound by the conventional and to exercise their own originality. They finally gained consent to have the arrangements to suit themselves. So all things were planned swiftly and quietly. Some did not even know that they were bound for such an errand even after they were on the way. But the auto overtook the quietly jogging horse of the minister and enlightment shone in the eyes. After the happy consummation of the wedding vows it did not seem that any thing could be more beautiful or fitting.

Mr. Wilcox is a photographer, has made his home in Sioux City for some time but now resides at Mitchell where he and his wife will make their home. He is to be congratulated on the woman he has won.

The bride's home has been in Scotland and vicinity. Here she has grown to womanhood. In her home life and her work of a trained nurse she has shown herself a true womanly woman. The many friends she has won for herself by her admirable qualities all join in wishing her and her husband the best of life's blessings.
