A very quiet home wedding occurred at the farm home of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Hillman, northeast of town last Sunday, June 3 at high noon when their daughter, Gladys Mae, was united in marriage to Louie R. Lane of Arthur County; the Reverend J. W. Gress tieing the nuptial knot in the presence of about twenty-five close friends and relatives.

The bride wore an embroidered net dress over cream chiffon. She is one of Hayes County’s choicest young ladies and is respected by all. She was a junior in the Hayes County High School the last year.

The groom wore a suit of dark brown serge. He is the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. David Lane. He is a very energetic, young ranchman of Arthur County where he went over a year ago and settled upon a section homestead and has fitted up a home where he and his young bride will embark on their matrimonal voyage with the best wishes of a large circle of friends. They departed yesterday for the homestead via covered wagon.

Louie Robert Lane

First born of David and Mary Lane

Louie Robert Lane, born 1 Jun 1894 at Corning, Holt County, MO.  Married on 3 Jun 1917 in Hayes County, NE to Gladys Mae Hillman.  She was born 16 Jan 1898 in Hayes County, NE, the second-oldest of four daughters of Harry and Mary Elizabeth Hillman.  The Nebraska Times Republican newspaper of Hayes County reported the event in its June 7, 1917 issue, noting that the Rev. J.W. Gress performed the ceremony “in the presence of about twenty-five close friends and relatives” and that  Louie “is a very energetic, young ranchman of Arthur County…”
Louie may not have attended any high school, but did attend a business college at York, a town midway between Grand Island and Lincoln, Neb.  It was on 26 June 1919 that the federal land office, then located at Broken Bow, NE, issued a Homestead patent for 639.04 acres in Arthur County to Louie R. Lane, document number 010476, issued by authority of President Woodrow Wilson.

They came to a 40-acre berry farm in Boring in 1936 and were active in the Haley Baptist Church and in retirement years they were active in the Gresham Senior Center “Hot Shots” band.  They participated with that band in performances at many county fairs and at the 1974 Worlds Fair in Spokane, Wash.  The “Hot Shots” played non-traditional instruments and were directed by Mae’s sister, Irma L. Wilson of Gresham.  Louie usually played “bones” and Mae played percussion (on pots or pans).  They raised 6 children on their berry farm in rural Clackamas County, OR.  Mae died 2 June 1987 in Boring.  Louie died 16 Feb 1988 at Boring and the two of them are buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Gresham, OR.  (At the time of his death, according to the obituary published in the Gresham newspaper, he had 30 grandchildren, 51 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great-grandchildren!)
