* The home of Mrs. Margaret E. Englar, at New Windsor, was the scene of a very pretty wedding on Wednesday afternoon last. The contracting parties were Mr. R. Smith Snader, son of Mr. Philip Snader, a prominent farmer in this community, and Miss Emma L. Englar, daughter of Mrs. Margaret E. Englar, of New Windsor. It was a few minutes after two o'clock when Mrs. John Smelser, of New Windsor, first struck the familiar chords of Mendelssohn's march, and only a few strains were necessary to put expectation in the faces of the many friends who had assembled to witness the ceremony. At 4:45, Mr. and Mrs. Snader left for an extended trip to the World's Fair and other noted points of interest in the North and East. -- American Sentinel, Sept. 30, 1893.
