A wedding according to the ritual of the
Catholic church, and the first one that has ever taken place in town,
occurred on last Monday morning. Mr. John Wolf
was married to Miss
in the church, Rev. Father Ripen officiating. A
good many Protestants were attracted by the novelty of the performance
but came away not much wiser than they went, as no part of the spoken
service was intelligible to the Yankees. Everything passed off
satisfactorily, however, and the work was doubtless well done. Mr. Wolf
has been a resident of town several years but his bride is but a little
time in this country. Mr. Wolf had Messrs. Charles Wendlegass and
Gottleib Klengenberger for his groomsmen and the bride was attended by
Miss Mary Deigert and Miss Anna Fried. The remainder of the day was
spent in festivities at the home of the groom.

the ceremony there was a reception at the home of the groom's parents,
Mr. and Mrs. Louis Mazzi on South Wayne street, Phelps, after which the
couple accompanied by a host of their friends, left for this city,
they arrived shortly before six. They repaired to the newly-furnished
house, prepared by the groom, at the corner of Middle and Exchange
street, where another reception was held, accompanied by a banquet and
musicale. The event was a long-looked for one by the neighbors and
that section of the city, and nearly 300 persons were congregated about
the house last night, listening to the Italian music.
The wedding is the outcome of a most unusual lovemaking
affair, inasmuch as neither the bride or groom ever saw each other
until at Phelps last Friday, when the bride arrived from Italy. The
groom until recently operated a shoe repairing shop on Exchange street
and has in his employ Frank Albanese, a fellow countryman. Mazzi had
serious intentions regarding several young American girls and upon
informing his fellow workman of his feelings one day, Albanese told him
about a pretty sister that he had left behind in Italy. She was
a school teacher, and very popular, and he often wished that she would
come to this country to reside. Mazzi listened to him, and for several
days it was noticed that he was very quiet and thoughtful. Finally he
Albanese if he could correspond with his sister and receiving an
reply, the courtship began. Soon pictures were exchanged and finally a
was borne across the waters. The maid in the land of sunshine demurred,
but was informed in a letter by her brother that Mazzi was sincere and
accepted. Mazzi closed up his shoe shop, rented a house, furnished it

As a sequel to a series of interesting events related to the
marriage of John Mazzi of this city, and Miss Antoinetta Albanese, a
native of Italy, after having seen each other but once, comes the
announcement this morning that Mrs. Mazzi has left her husband; that he
is still on the hunt for her and threatens to kill her on sight. Such
is the state of
affairs with which residents of Exchange, State and Middle streets
acquainted with this morning when Mrs. Mazzi was seen to leave the
at the corner of Exchange and Middle streets, bag and baggage, while
her husband was away from home. She went to live with an Italian family
by the name of Mongoose, who reside on State avenue. Her husband
this afternoon from his work and finding the house empty, informed
Italians in the neighborhood that he was going to kill the woman, but
would wait until night so that he could do the job and make his escape.
The police have been notified. According to Joseph Sanzone and Alex
Onorator, two Italians who conduct stores on Exchange street near the
Mazzi residence, the woman who cannot speak a word of English, abhors
her husband and has done so from the date of the marriage, which was
solemnized at Phelps, June 29. She refused to sleep in the same room
with him and yesterday afternoon announced her intention of leaving his
house. Mazzi, who was seated at
a table eating, became crazed, and went into a fit upon hearing this
and it required the services of a physician to bring him out of it. He
been acting strangely since last night and his friends are afraid that
he will carry out his threat to kill his wife. The woman is quite
and she has attracted the attention of the young Italian dandies in the
neighborhood with whom she has been quite friendly, it is said. Friends
of both husband and wife say that she was satisfied with Mazzi until
saw other prosperous Italians about the city who pleased her better.
From Geneva Daily Times 25 July 1904
The trouble existing in the Mazzi family on Exchange street, has
been settled, temporarily, at least the bride and groom are again
living together. Saturday afternoon Mr. Mazzi sought the aid of a
policeman to get his wife back for him, but the peace guardian did not
see his way clear to perform any such delicate operations. Finally,
however, the policeman went to the Mazzi residence to make further
inquiries into the
affair, and was met at the door by the husband who was laughing,
clapping his hands, and dancing about like a madman. His joy, for such
it was, was caused by the appearance of his wife at the house, and by
her promise to try try and love him and never run away again. She said
as much in words, through her husband as interpreter, to the officer
and she apparently was very happy. Mazzi now threatens to bring civil
action against his brother and other friends for alienation of his
