Wedding Guest Book

Thank you to my aunt for sharing the wedding guest book of my great grandparents, Howard Lutter (1889-1959) and Ethel Laurel "Laura" Winterton (1891-1962).

They were married in Newark, Essex County, New Jersey in 1910.

Witnesses were the bride's parents, William Walling Winterton (1862-1932) and Catherine Butterfoss Dunn (1865-1944).

The only guests who signed the book were Howard's mother, Clara Rosalie Uhl (1865-1955), Laura's brother, William Gladstone Winterton (1898-1976), and Miss J Brown. I do not know who this is.

In later years, a descendant drew on the book during childhood.

Howard and Laura divorced in 1927. Howard remarried to Fiorita Lorenz in 1928. Fiorita was newly divorced from James Winnie. I do not know how or when they met, but Howard lived with Fiorita and her husband as a tenant in Bloomfield. Fiorita testified for Howard in his divorce. Howard purchased the house from Fiorita and James and then resided in it with his two children, Fiorita, and her daughter.
