This is the third time George thrusts his head into the matrimonial noose, but with him the "yoke is easy and the burden light." We rejoice heartily with those that rejoice, and dove-tail our best wishes with those of a host of old acquaintances, for a pleasant bon voyage over the rough sea of life, and that it may go well with them to the end. Thanks for the greenback.

3. ELIZA LOUISA2 SPARLING (SPARLING1) was born Abt. 1822 in Ireland. She married AARON HAINES.

Notes for AARON HAINES:
February 19, 1880
Died at Winfield, Kan., Feb. 8, of lung fever, Aaron Haines, 69 years, 3 months 4 days, recently of Snachwine, and brother-in-law of George Sparling.

Father Aaron Haines, late of Snachwine, was gathered to his fathers at Winfield, Kan., two Sundays ago, of lung fever. Mr. Haines was one of the pioneers of Snachwine, and perhaps had as much to do in the formation of the town as any other man. He was a native of Canada. By a first wife he had two children, one daughter, still living in Canada, and the other a son, living in California. His second wife is a sister of George Sparling, who survives him. He owned the farm now in possession of W. B. Robinson, southwest of the village, where he kept the hotel of the place until he moved to Kansas a year ago. He was a carpenter by trade, and most of the houses standing in Snachwine, were built through his handiwork. He was a stirring, usefel man, active in social and church work, and always ready to help a friend in need. He never held a public office, though a conspicuous citizen, which is a wonder, and leaves a memory previous to a large circle of old friends and neighbors, who will revere him for his probity, frankness, generosity, nobleness and tenderness of heart. He was a friend to the sick and distressed and one of the best of neighbors.
