John W. McCallum, 74 years of age, and Jessie L. Vaughn, 58, both of Meadow Grove, had been keeping company for about a year. Friends in their home town smiled at each other. They expected a match to result. And they were not disappointed, for Thursday, June 3rd , the couple came to Omaha, obtained a license from “Cupid” Stubbendorf and were married by Judge Foster. Immediately after the knot was tied the bridegroom fulfilled a pre-nuptial agreement by presenting the bride with $10,000. Mr. McCallum is a retired farmer—Omaha Bee.  The News extends heartiest congratulations to the happy couple. Source: Meadow Grove News, Friday, June 11, 1920, page 1.
