This day in the Boyertown Area:  October 19, 1910
It is learned, to the biggest surprise of their friends, that
Cambria Kolb and Bessie Mock have eloped to Wilmington and
were married.  The elopement was the "culmination of a rocky
wooing, in which the waves were high, and smooth sailing was
rare.  When the storm raged furiously at the bride's home, it was
decided that the only way to true happiness was an elopement."  
Kolb left town on the 6:00 AM trolley, followed by Miss Mock
on the 7:00 AM car.  They met at Pottstown and proceeded to
Wilmington where they were married.  The young couple is now
residing with the groom's parents on East Philadelphia Avenue
and have been serenaded by the P.O.S.A drum corps.
