From The Marion Star, 29 May 1901 issue:
Regular column:  Page's Mill Dots 
(Lake View was formerly named Page's Mill.)
Mrs. Joel Hays was bitten by a large rattlesnake pilot last 
Saturday and came near losing her life. Almost immediately 
her arm began to swell to immense proportions. She soon 
began to suffer terrific pain with great nausea and vomiting. 
A physician arrived at once and by the skillful use of 
medicine (several lines illegible) ...and wildly delirious. 
At present, when last heard, she was slowly recovering.
(Mrs. Joel Hays was the former Anna  Missouri Hill. -jcd)

From The Marion Star, ?? May 1901 issue:
Regular column:  Page's Mill Dots 
A very romantic marriage was that of Mr. W.C. Husbands, 
the popular janitor of the courthouse, to Miss Missouri 
Hayes of Page's Mill Monday evening. The groom is a 
veteran of the Confederate War and is 68 years old. The 
bride is a winsome young lady of 20. Mr. F.W. McKerral, 
a notary, in the presence of a large company of the friends 
of the happy couple, read the marriage service, and with 
great dignity and grace tied the nuptial knot. Mr. J.B. DuBose 
acted as "best" man. (Miss Missouri Hayes was the youngest 
daughter of Joel B. Hayes and Anna Missouri Hill. -jcd)
