JEROME – During the holidays friends here learned of the marriage of Bill Hawkins, so of Mr. and Mrs. William Hawkins of Davenport.

“The first wedding to be held in the chapel of the new First Congregational church was Miss Francia Ann Kozelka, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Kozelka of Springfield, Ill., to William Richard Hawkins of Davenport at 4:30 on Dec. 26, 1959. Miss Martha Cotton of Springfield was the bride’s matron of honor and James R. Moeller of Walcott was Hawkins’ best man.
“A reception was held in the church parlors after the wedding ceremony.
“The newlyweds are third-year students at the University of Chicago and have returned to school. They live at 5520 Ellis Ave., Apt. 1 E, Chicago, Ill.”
