  Marriage Notes:

The ceremony, performed by W. H. Chapman of Anaheim was witnessed by Bird V. Beebe of Anaheim and G. L. Butterfield of Los Angeles.

The following is the wedding announcement that appeared in a local newspaper, probably published in Anaheim, California, based upon an advertisement on the reverse of the clipping. Bird V. Beebe lived in Anaheim, California. Upland, the home of Jay's mother, is in San Bernardino County, California.

"Dr. J. L. Beebe, of Lower Lake, Lake county, and Miss Eva Pobst [sic], of Rochester, Minn., were married at high noon Wednesday at the residence of the groom's brother, Bird V. Beebe. Rev. W. H. Chapman performed the ceremony, which was a very quiet one, only a few immediate relatives of the groom being present. Mrs. Chapman rendered an appropriate musical program, and after the ceremony a handsome wedding dinner was served. Dr. Beebe recently came out from the East and settled in Lake county, and after establishing himself sent for his promised bride to follow him. Dr. and Mrs. Beebe left Wednesday for a short visit to the former's mother at Upland, and thence will proceed to Lower Lake."
