Alexander W. Perry marries Abbie Cheney

“A noon wedding occurred in Mankato today. Mr. Alex W. Perry and Miss Abbie V. Cheney of Amboy were married, the ceremony taking place at the Stahl House, Dr. C. Line of the Methodist church officiating.” The (Mankato) Review, Nov 9, 1897.

The Stahl House is now a wine bar, and is at the corner of Riverfront Dr and Plum St. Street View Stahl House

Abbie Cheney’s family came from Rutland County Vermont, the same county that James Perry came from. There were a number of Cheneys who also lived in the Mankato area, including Rapidan. In fact, Rapidan lists a Perry W. Cheney as a barber (no known connection to Abbie Cheney or the Perrys in my family).
