One of the two individuals mentioned in the clipping below from the Cincinnati Daily Press, July 26, 1860, might be related to my wife. However, that is not why I am sharing this.
I found the phrasing particularly interesting. I am fairly certain if the below appeared in a newspaper today, many readers would assume something very different from what most 1860 readers assumed.
"...Night before last, however, a wedding took place near the Brighton House and almost before the pair had become legally one, Charles Schrock and Henry Erndt became involved in a difficulty, when, after many words and a few blows, the latter drew a knife and stabbed his antagonist in the side and arm..."
Of course, both readers are making an assumption. We need to be extra cautious about the assumptions we make.
