Article in the Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph published on Sunday 20 September 1908 reads

The marriage of Miss Bell Sinton, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. William K. Sinton of this city, and Mr. F. Nathaniel Willett of Woodbine, Ia., was quietly celebrated yesterday at noon in the Sinton home, 1220 North Tejon Street. There were no attendants and the only witnesses were near relatives.

The ceremony was performed by the Rev. James B. Gregg, pastor of the First Congregrational church, who officiated at the marriage of the bride's parents, 23 years ago this month. Mr and Mrs. Willett have gone to the mountains for a week or two and will then go to Iowa to make their home.

Mr. and Mrs. Willett have both been students in Cutler Academy and Colorado College and have known each other for some years.
