Secretly Married Four Months Ago.  
Principals in Ceremony Miss P.G. Henshaw and F. Kinsman.  
Santa Clara Young Man Has Been Successful as an Actor.  

Santa Clara, Dec. 23.  

The news of a secret wedding, which occurred over four months ago, in which a well known and popular young lady of this vicinity was one of the principals, is just now being whispered among the relatives and a few immediate friends.  As the marriage has not yet been publicly announced it will be received with much surprise by the friends of the contracting parties, who are Miss Pearl G. Henshaw of Campbell and Fred Kinsman, an electrician in the employ of the United Railroad Company of San Francisco.  The young couple had kept company for some time and the relatives were anxiously the coming of the wedding [sic], but were greatly surprised to learn but a few days since that they had been quietly married on the 17th of August last in San Rafael.  Their secret was well guarded and the first intimation of it was a few days ago when the young lady informed her mother.  It is stated that the wedding was such a quiet affair because of the death of her father some months ago and the lingering illness of her brother, which terminated in his death last week.  Since the marriage the bride has resided at her home near Campbell and the groom continued at his work in the metropolis.  On Sunday next a dinner will be given in honor of the married couple, after which the bride-elect will leave for San Francisco, where she will reside.

Pearl lived on a ranch after the 1906 earthquake, then later moved to Burlingame, San Mateo County, California.1
