I can't remember who was researching the name WILSON but I found this
article and thought I would post it here.

June 7 1899

Location: Baltimore, MD

Description: Drove 70 Miles to Wed.

Dover, Del., June 6.--Alfred C. WILSON, a civil engineer in Sussex county,
was offered a position with the National Dredging Company provided he could
reach Mobile,Ala., within 36 hours.

WILSON accepted but wanted to marry before he went. He hurried to Milton,
was accepted by Miss Fannie L. WILSON, and, with Ralph WILSON, his brother, and
Miss Nancy WELSH, started to get a license. They had to drive by relays to
Dover, get the license and hurry to Houston, where both couples were married
by Rev. George S. SMITH.

Alfred WILSON and his bride then started for Mobile. They had driven 70
miles before they were wedded.
