    • Trenton Republican Leader, Friday, May 12, 1922, p.1, c6

      Miss Marjorie Negley and Sterling Holston went to Denver last Friday and were married in that city, Saturday. Apparently they had figured on springing a surprise on their Trenton friends by returning each to their former home and keeping the wedding a secret until after the school was out, but they did not take into consideration that the Denver papers came here and gave us the news before they returned. They arrived home Monday morning and each sought their own bed, but their surprise was soon gone, and Sterling was around with the wedding trinkets.

      The bride has been the principal of our schools for the past two years and has made many friends all of whom are pleased that she is to remain and make her home with us. The groom is a graduate of our school, was born here and has the confidence of the entire community. The Leader has only the best of wishes for Mr. and Mrs. Holston, and hope their life may prove as rosy to them as it now appears.

      School Notes: "Miss Marjorie Negley and Mr. Sterling Holston gave the people of Trenton a surprise when they slipped off to Denver and were married while visiting her sister. They were accompanied by Mr. Floyd Negley, who was en route to California."

  • Notes 
    • (Research):There is a Sterling C. Holston, age 28 listed in the 1930 U.S. Census of Minneapolis, Minnesota who is married to a Majorie F., age 35. He states that he was born in Nebraska and his father in Iowa. But the one fact that doesn't fit is that he says his mother was born in Iowa as well when know for certain that she was born in Missouri. This is our Sterling Holston, despite the error in his mother's birthplace.

      Sterling was living in Indianapolis, IN in 1931 when father died. In 1947 at time of his mother's death he was in Omaha, NE
