Marriage of John Jacob Astor IV...



Item # 694570

February 18, 1891

THE DAILY JOURNAL, Philipsburg, Pennsylvania, Feb. 18, 1891  

* John Jacob Astor IV wedding

The back page has a full column taken up with a detailed report of the first marriage of John Jacob Astor IV, headed: "HYMEN'S GOLDEN CHAINS" "They Link the Lives of John Jacob Astor and Miss Willing" "Married in Philadelphia". There are printers of both J.J. Astor, and Miss Ava Willing.
John Jacob Astor would die in the sinking of the Titanic in 1912, but his 2nd wife, Madeleine, would survive the sinking, living until 1940.
Four pages, toned throughout, archivally rejoined at the spine, minor margin tears, but it must be handled carefully due to fragility.
