Notes for ALICE LANNON:
Sussex - Several of our village
people attended the marriage of Allie (Alice) Lannon to Alex Brennon, of
Sussex, at St. Mary's church, Pewaukee, last Monday morning at 9 o'clock.
A reception followed at the home of the bride's father, A. Lannon (the
only A. Lannon I've found in the area was William's son Andrew, but he was
never attributed to having been married or had children. Then in Alice's
obit, her father is listed as Edward), to which a large number of
relatives were invited. Mr. and Mrs. Brennon took the afternoon train for
Oconomowoc and will be at home to their many friends after July 1st at the
Lannon farm, three miles west (?) of the village. Source: Waukesha
