Wedding Wednesday - Maitland and Oliphant

On the 4th day of March, 1865, Mr. Maitland was married to Miss Mary G. Oliphant, daughter of Alexander Oliphant, deceased, formerly of Ray County. This was the day of Abraham Lincoln's second inauguration. Ironic since Alexander was a Confederate sympathizer, living north of the Missouri river. His father-in-law, Alexander Oliphant, was pro-union.
