11 iv. Mary Agnes Myers was born in E. of Wheeling, Ohio Co., WV 13 Apr 1874.(1590) just across the state line from Alexander, PA (which was the family's post office).(1591) Mary died 1969 in McPherson, McPherson Co., KS, at age 95. She married Jacob Lewis (Lew) Schwartz 26 Nov 1896 in Wellington, Sumner co., KS.(1592) From the unfinished memoirs of Mary Agnes (Myers) Schwartz: Lew and I were married very early in the morning -- I believe 7:30 -- as the train on which we left town on our wedding trip was an early train. I had a silver gray dress, silk and wool mixed -- trimmed in maroon velvet -- and a gray camel's hair hat, with a shirred maroon velvet crown and aigrets; gray gloves fastened with small three-eyed pearl buttons and black shoes and black coat with immense balloon sleeves. We went to Wichita where we changed cars. While waiting in the station, we weighed ourselves on the waiting room scales. I weighed 109 lbs and Lew weighed 139 lbs. We went to Newton from Wichita and had another wait. Then on to Florence and then to Lyons, our destination. It was snowing when we reached Lyons. Cree Henderson met us at the station and we went in the hack to Uncle Jimmie's and Aunt Ev's home, where we made a short visit. Among the callers were Miriam Coutter and Harvey Motter who were afterward married -- I have forgotten -- perhaps they were married at that time, but I think not. Grandfather Myers gave me for a wedding present a book on Missions that he was trying to sell, for those were the days of book agents. He also asked me for money. This peeved me, for I had intended giving him some money, and was disgusted that he made the request before I got around to making the gift. After returning to Wellington, we began to arrange to move to Hutchinson where my father and Lew were establishing a lsundry. After our wedding trip Lew had no money for such an investment. The money I had saved from teaching school and turned over to my father for the business had never been accounted for up to this time. So, I asked my father to transfer stock accordingly to Lew, and put it in his name. I could see this didn't please my father, but he couldn't say "No". He had always carried the family pocket book. However, this was done and that was the way Lew got started in the laundry business. That was all the capital he had, but he certainly was a working partner.(1593)
Jacob was born 12 Aug 1864 in Near Ottumwa, Wappello Co., IA.(1594) Jacob was the son of Lewis Schwartz and Mary Ann Sophia Bonstead.
