C E Ward and Miss Chloe Vann quietly departed Saturday night for Chandler, Oklahoma, where they were married on Sunday. They returned the same evening and are now happily domiciled on South First street. This marriage was an elopement and is another instance where love laughs at locksmiths. It was supposed that the parents of the bride had broken off the attachment, but the young folks were only biding their time and on Saturday night made good their plighted vows. By working a little ruse they left the confines of the city for a short period to return as man and wife. Both parties are well known in Tulsa and many there are who wish them a world of happiness in their wedded state. Tulsa Indian Republican newspaper, 22 Aug 1902, pg 9, col 1, "Local Paragraphs"
