|Joseph W. & Charlotta Banks Wade|
Both Joseph and Lottie lived in Chester, IL at the time of the marriage. I am writing a bio on Joseph and will talk later about how I believe Joseph and Lottie most likely met. Here is their Marriage License.
According to the Return of Marriage to a County Clerk, Joseph was a Machinist, born in Carmi, Indiana. His parents were Joseph Wade and Elizabeth Pelt. It was his first marriage. Lottie's father was Sherman Banks, although she was raised by her stepfather Frank Bruce. The witnesses to the marriage were Thomas Devine, Justice of the Peace and Mary Bruce (most likely related to Frank).
