Missouri: 1930’s Elopement to Kansas




Miss Mosceoline McAninch [1], daughter of Dr. and Mrs. W. M. McAninch [2] of this city [3],

and Mr. Elmo Gregg [4], of Nevada [5], surprised their families and friends by driving to

Girard [6] last Monday evening and getting married. Mrs. McAninch thought her daughter was

staying all night with her friend, Miss Pauline Quillen, until she called up Miss Pauline the next

morning and learned that Miss Mosceoline was not there.


Following their marriage at Girard, the young folks went to the home of the groom's parents in

Nevada . Mr. Gregg is employed in a large furniture store in Nevada that is owned by his father.


The bride graduated from the Lamar High school in the class of 1929. She is a bright vivacious 

and attractive girl. She has many young friends in Lamar, and is a most admirable young woman.
