Quote from an address given by William (Bill) Snell, age 82, at his Grand Niece, Betty Berg's wedding.

"This occasion brings back memories to me of the past - the wedding day of my sister Margaret Ross Snell, the bride's Grandmother to Francis Oliver Jaques on June 22nd 1904. It was a most beautiful day - one can still imagine the leaves of the trees and the other foliage and flowers there at that time of year down east. The marriage took place on a farm (my father's) know as Minto Hill Farm in the County of Wellington, in the Township of Minto, in the Province of Ontario. The ceremony was held to the north of the house under an arch of evergreens built of spruce and cedar boughs, which it fell to my lot to build. Also, I had built a long table nearby, upon which the wedding supper was served to about 40 guests - a beautiful setting. After supper, a lot of rice was thrown and good wishes and hand shakings went the rounds - then the Bride and Groom and Groomsman in one buggy and the Bridesmaid and a cousin and myself in another buggy took the couple to the town of Mount Forest Ontario as the first step of their Honeymoon. From there they went by train to Michigan State and New York State. On their return, they settled 9 miles north of the city of Woodstock, but they came west in the spring of 1911 to make their home in Eastern Alberta, south west of where Oyen now is."
