Wedding Day – 1910

Martha Peterson and William Fergus met at a dance in Snowville, Box Elder, Utah.  William and his brother were homesteading in Holbrook, Idaho, at the time.  He was a pretty fancy fellow, a college graduate, and a good dancer, so naturally he attracted attention.  In this case, it was the attention of young Martha and her bishop.  Martha’s bishop warned her not to go steady with a “northern” boy, but Martha was bound and determined.  Holbrook, Idaho was north of Snowville, yet still in Curlew Stake.  William and Martha married on April 11, 1910, and continued to dance together for the rest of their lives, often winning prizes for their skill.
