GHtanel and his prospective bride were awaiting the preacher at La Junta, Feb. 2. 1831, when it was learned ,1 flood had washed out a bridge at Las Animus, preventing the minister from reaching the scene of the wedding. The chief dispatcher for the Santa Fc railroad permitted Giliand to use his office for the nuptials and the entire ceremony was performed by telegraph messages between Li Junta and L'is Animas.
