| The following marriage intentions were found
in a newspaper called the Lowell Evening Mail which published a listing
called "MARRIAGE INTENTIONS" several times a week. However, this newspaper
publication on 8 May 1908 so for the remainder of that year,
no listing could be found. For some unknown reason the Lowell Sunday Telegram
ceased publishing this information in 1908.
In addition to the names of the couple to be married, the paper usually listed their ages, addresses, occupations and if they were widowed or divorced. If they list a widowed or divorced woman, they usually also list her maiden name. Attempts were made to verify the spelling of names but as this was not always possible, the names were copied as printed in the newspaper.
