From the Adair County (KY) News, April 25, 1900

We clip the following from the Lebanon Enterprise [newspaper]:

"Prof. James E. Willis, assistant teacher in the Bradfordsville Normal and High School, eloped Wednesday with Miss Verna Glasscock, the beautiful daughter of Mr. James H. Glasscock, Bradfordsville. Their intentions were known to no one and their elopement was a great surprise."
Prof. Willis was reared in [Adair] County--a representative of one of the best families and is a young lawyer, as well as a teacher, whose energy and ability will produce good returns wherever he may locate. Miss Glasscock is a charming young lady and has visited [Columbia]. These young people have the good wishes of their many friends in this part of the country.

(Another source -- History of Kentucky, Judge Charles Kerr, Editor, Vol. 5 (1922) -- states that Miss Glasscock was born in 1884 and that she first married Mr. Willis "and is now the wife Lawrence Walker.")
