Marriage Announced

Miss Eleanor Irene Whitehead, the daughter of T. O. Whitehead, and Grant Sinton were quietly married Friday, December 24, at 5 o'clock, at the residence of the Rev. Royden C. Leonard, who performed the ceremony in the presence of a few friends and relatives.

Mrs. Sinton is well known here, and attended the local High school. Mr. Sinton served overseas during the late war. They will make their home in Colorado Springs.

Now we have a problem. The above article says the marriage took place on Friday 24 December 1920 but the official Colorado records say it took place on Monday 27 December 1920. I'm going with the Colorado records.
