Georgia Kirschenstein Kern (Keins?)*
(Mrs. Edward Kern or Keins)
* NOTE -- Georgia Kirchenstein's married name appears two different ways in two separate newspaper articles. Her 1917 wedding announcement spealls the name as "Kern," while her 1928 obituary lists it as "Keins."
The following article was found in the March 29, 1917, Lowell Tribune on
page 1, column 4:
Married at the home of the bride's parents, Edward Kern, of Danville,
Ill., to Miss Georgia Kirschenstein Monday, March 26th. The ceremony
was performed by Rev. V.B. Servies, pastor of the Lowell M.E. church.
There were about twenty-five guests present. The bride is the daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Kirschenstein, of Belshaw, and one of our most respected
and highly esteemed young ladies. The groom is a trainman of the C., I,
& S railroad, and those who know him speak of him in the highest terms
of praise. The newly married couple left on the 6 p.m. train for
Danville, where they will make their future home. The newly married
couple have congratulations of their friends.
The following August 30, 1928, Lowell Tribune obituary appeared on page 8, column 3:
