Corte Madera Man Elopes Second Time

An item of interest to Corte Madera residents recently appeared in a Napa county paper. It concerned the elopement of Miss Virginia SQUIRES, high school girl of Napa and daughter of Dr. Squires of that city, with Alfred NELSON of Corte Madera, and who is now employed in Sacramento by the Pacific Gas & Electric Company.

The parents of the young bride objected to her marriage on account of her youth and had the marriage annulled. No soon[er] had that been accomplished than the young people eloped again, this time with better success.

Following a honeymoon trip to Los Angeles, they are now domiciled in Fairfield and have received a belated blessing from the bride’s parents who have decided not to again interfere.
