Dalgarno and Dunbar wedding, 1888 – 52 Ancestors

January 20, 2014

A cute Newdale wedding story from the Manitoba Daily Free Press in 1888.

A wedding took place a few days ago at Newdale.  A young lady from Wingham, Ontario, arrived here on the evening train, was met at the station by her future husband and married in 20 minutes after leaving the cars. Manitoba is not so slow after all; except in completing the Red River Valley Railroad.

Newdale column, Manitoba Daily Free Press, Friday, 27 January, 1888, page 4.

This must have been the wedding of Sarah Dunbar and Robert Dalgarno, 16 January 1888. [The Manitoba Vital Statistics index shows Daljarno.]

Robert Dalgarno is included in the Manitoba Historical Society’s Memorable Manitobans and his and Sarah’s family is included in the Newdale history book.
