My grandmother's brother Henry RIECKMANN, in Buffalo County, Nebr., got
a "mail-order bride" from Indiania, named Mary Schneider. I was told
that her brother who had a dry goods store. When she came to Nebraska to
marry Uncle Henry, she brought samples of yard goods (cloth) with her.
He had been born in Hannover in 1864, she had been born in Germany in
1875. I don't know the date of their marriage.
I don't know any details of the arrangements, except that there was a
newspaper ad involved.
