More Early History.
Some time bgo The Chronicle pub
lished an account of the marriage of
William McKy and Margaret Camp
bell, winch took place in Wasco, county
in lojb. At tl at time the statement
was made that possibly this may have
b3en the first marriage of record in this
county, since no records of an earlier
one were foand. Now, however, the
contrary is determined. The reading of
the article in this paper caused -Mr. M.
M. Cushing, the well known fruit-raiser,
of 5-Mile creek, to call from memory the
date of hi) marriage, which is shown to
be older than that of Dr. McKay. On
the 16ih day of April, 1854 M. M, Cush
ing and Mary Pigott were united in
marriage. The ceremony took place at
the quarters of Major. G. O. Haller in
old Fort Dalles. Nathan Olney per
formed the ceremony, aud these were
witnesses: Eliza Pigott, a sister of
Mrs. Cushing, Major and Mrs. G. O.
Haller, Captain and Mrs. M. Maloney,
Lieut. Montgomery, Lieut. Forsythe,
Dr. Summers, the post surgeon, Mrs.
Caleb now Mrs. Schutis Sergeant
Ja me 8 McAuliff now a resident of
Walla Walla and Musician James
Whitebread. The certificate of marriage
Mr. Cushing still has, and it was shown
to the writer todav. It reads as follows :

I do hereby certify that on the 16th
day of Aprii A. D., 1854.'Mr. M. M.
(Jusning and Miss Mary Pigott, both of
the county and precinct aforesaid, were
by me joined together, with their
mutual consent, in tho . bonds of wed
lock ; and I did first ascertain that the
said parties were of sufficient age to con
sent to ttie same.

The writing is on a piece of blue
paper,' discolored with age; but the

record has been misplaced or destroyed
Mrs. Cushing came around the Horn in
1853, while Mr, Cushing, as a soldier in
the regular army, crossed the Isthmus
in 1852, arriving in Tho Dalles Septem
ber 3, 1852. Mr. and Mrs. Cushing have
lived in Wasco county for many years,
ar.d are numbered among its oldest and
most respected pioneers.
A curious coincidence happened in
connection with these early marriages.
Until yesterday Mr. Cushing thought
his was the first ceremony performed in
this section o the country, but a casual
conversation with Mr. George Snipes
disclosed the fact that that gentleman
was in th lead. Mr. Snipes was mar
ried in The Dalles September 18, 1853,
before Wasco county was organized. The
ceremony took place near where the
Umatilla House now stands, and was
performed by Rev. Gustavus Hines.
There is quite a romance connected with
this episode, as an elopement preceded
the marriage of Mr. Snipes to the esti
mable lady who is his wife. Love was
just as strong in those days as it is now,
and it laughed at locksmiths and long
journeys and braved difficulties innum
