Remember when

Julia Grace Wilson was born in La Porte in 1869. In 1890, she married Lowell Cary Bassford of Hastings, Minnesota. Their wedding was quite the event; it received three columns of coverage in the local newspaper! After their wedding, the bridal party traveled to Chicago, then St. Paul, presumably to visit Lowell’s family. The couple had one child, Wilson Lowell, in 1892. Julia died in La Grange, Illinois, in 1924.
