State Law

1941 – 79 year old Richmond McIntyre of Fusonia, merchant, had reason to gripe about a new state law which required blood tests before a marriage license would be issued. A busy man, McIntyre wanted to get married “right off the bat” like in the old days. He had too much work to do tending his store, keeping house, milking cows and other chores. When McIntyre and his bride-to-be Martha Brewer went to the Perry County Court House and were told of the new law, McIntyre became indignant: “Why, I’ve been so busy I haven’t had time to make up my bed in a month and I need this woman.”
