Fancy bonnets, kid gloves, and silk dresses were never dreamed of. The most
complete wardrobe consisted of a home-spun dress,deer-skin petticoats, dyed blue from the bark of the soft maple, and a squirrel-skin bonnet. In many instances, bride and bridegroom mounted the same horse, and rode away to the nearest magistrate, a
happy couple.
