1896: Renewed Their Early Love

Royal Grant, Aged 81, and Martha Galpin, Aged 71, United In Matrimony.

Middletown, Conn., March 18.–“Rev. Raymond Maplesden, the Baptist pastor, married yesterday afternoon Royal Grant, aged 81, and Mrs. Martha J. Warren, aged 71. Grant is an essence peddler and years ago met Martha J. Galpin, but his suit was not successful. Since then he has drifted around the country and married twice, she once, and now after several years of loneliness, they have met and renewed their early love.”– From the Middletown Daily Argus (Middletown, N. Y.), March 18, 1896.
