Carringers in the News — Leora Pearl Carringer Marries Albert William Singleton in 1918 in Franklin, Pennsylvania

 It is time for one more version of “Carringers within the Information” – a weekly characteristic from the historic newspapers about individuals with the surname Carringer (my mom’s maiden surname) which might be attention-grabbing, helpful, mysterious, enjoyable, macabre, or add data to my household tree database.

This week’s entry is from The Information-Herald [Franklin, Penn.] newspaper dated 7 March 1918:

The transcription of this text is:  

Albert William Singleton and Miss Leola Pearl Carringer had been married at 2 o’clock Thursday afternoon on the residence of the bride’s dad and mom, Mr. and Mrs. W.E. Carringer, on thirteenth road.  Rev. S.V. Carmany officiated and the ring ceremony was used.  Following the ceremony, a marriage diner was served.  The younger couple will make their residence in Franklin.  Among the many visitors was Mrs. W.G. Kimes of Oil Metropolis.”

The supply quotation is:

“Singleton-Carringer,” The Information-Herald [Franklin, Penn.] newspaper, marriage article, Thursday, 7 March 1918, web page 5, column 3, Albert William Singleton and Leola Pearl Carringer marriage article;  ( : accessed 4 October 2021).

This marriage article gives the names of the bride and groom, the bride’s dad and mom names, and one of many out of city attendees.  

Albert William Singleton (1896-1971) was born 29 October 1896, the son of William Thomas and Flora (Ross) Singleton of Franklin, and died 9 January 1971 in Detroit, Michigan.  Leola Pearl Carringer (1901-1982) was born 7 March 1901 in Mercer County, Pennsylvania, daughter of William Earl and Fanny Lobertha (Latshaw) Carringer, and died 9 August 1982 in Pinellas County, Florida.  They married 7 March 191 in Franklin, Pennsylvania.  That they had one youngster:

In keeping with different out there data, “Leola’s” given identify was Leora Pearl Carringer.  She married (2) Abel W. Haldeman (1902-1984) in 1928.

I’m a 4th cousin as soon as eliminated to Leora Pearl (Carringer) (Singleton) Haldeman.  Our widespread ancestors are my 4th great-grandparents Martin Carringer (1758-1835) and Maria Magdalena Hoax (1768-1851).

There are a whole bunch of Carringer “tales” in my household tree – and this was considered one of them.   Life occurs, by chance and deliberately, and generally a newspaper article accommodates the mistaken spelling of a reputation. I’m glad that I can honor Leora Pearl Carringer as we speak.
