Andrew and Alvina (DesLarzes) O’Connor were married Sept. 26, 1900, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin DesLarzes, 13 miles southeast of Holyoke on the Yuma County Line. The wedding was held partially in a field in Phillips County, where the bride and groom stood on sheet-covered boxes and were married by a Catholic priest. Their wedding license was secured in Phillips County. The bride’s wedding gown was made by her father, a Frenchman who came from Switzerland, who was a tailor and could make anything. — Source: Phillips County Museum
