In 1913, the Gustavus Adolphus orphanage was the scene of an usually interesting wedding Wednesday evening. John Oscar Peterson and Lillian Louise Martin, both of whom had been brought up from childhood in the institution, being united in marriage by Rev. Dr. Julius Lincoln, pastor of the First Lutheran Church. They were attended by Harry Nyquist and Signe Swensson. The ceremony at 8 p.m. was performed in the parlor before the fireplace, which was banked with ferns, white and yellow chrysanthemums and potted plants. Following the ceremony, a wedding supper was served in the large dining room of the orphanage.
