      ------
      There is a Conner family tradition that Emma Conner and her mother, Margaret Ellen (Sackett) Conner were married in a double wedding to William Berry and his son Wiltz Berry. Weygant has Emma Conner married to William Berry and her mother married to John Berry.

      The Cass County WPA Marriage Records [http://www.rootsweb.com/~incass/mcon-cop.html]
      have the following:
      Conner Ellen John H Berry Sept 3 1874; Book 5, page 585
      Conner Emma Wilson R Berry Jan 30 1878; Book 6, page 414

      [This is appears to be a case where a family tradition is shown to be in error. It could be that Wilson and Emma met at her mother's wedding and that Wilson and and/or Emma had determined at that time they were in love. - T, King]
      ------
      Emma and Wiltz took a stagecoach, on the ice, ACROSS Lake Ontario to Canada for their honeymoon. Wiltz, was an accomplished artist who painted murals in the Parliament Building in Ottawa. They lived in Logansport, Indiana and were apparently very well to do as they owned several homes there. ( preusmably rented them out). Wiltz won several blue ribbons for his paintings at the Chicago Art Festivals. In his old age he painted circus wagons! - Rachel Stella
