McDonough - Scane Wedding.

Another stitch towards keeping the circle unbroken was taken when Patrick McDonough of Evanston brought his fiancee Jennifer Scane to Beaver Island and married her in the Episcopal Church on August 24th. The son of William Glen McDonough (the son of Bill Pat and Sophia "Skeezix" McDonough) and Eleanor (the daughter of Young James and sister to Mary Bert), Patrick has stayed in touch with his many Island cousins, and well knew how to do it right. Violin, organ, and bagpipes (pipes are a part of the lore of Ireland as well as Scotland) accompanied the ceremony, and after the wedding dinner at the Beaver Island Lodge a Dancing Reception was held at the Brothers' Place with music by Danny Gillespie, Cindy Gillespie-Cushman, Edward Palmer, and Brian Scane, the bride's brother.
