In 1880 Weld County, Colorado, Henry F. Currier, born about 1856 in Vermont, is a sheep raiser, single.
Lucy M. Packard married Henry F. Currier June 29, 1880, recorded in Weld County.

Henry F. Currier of Meadow Park Sheep Ranch and Miss Lucy M. Packard, one of Greeley s fairest daughters. The wedding , a comparatively unusual event in the town, was one of particular interest, owing to the social standing of the and the of fact that they were generally and widely known Mr. Currier, the groom, is the son of Judge Warren Currier of Denver, a gentleman whose legal abilities placed him among the foremost of his profession in St. Louis and who was at one time on the bench Court of . ;bnde is the daughter of the Reverend A. K. Packard Park Congregational Church Greeley. The happy couple was unusually well mated. The groom has firmly established himself in the respect, admiration and affection of a large and constantly increasing circle of friends, and his sterling good qualities, united with a firm and well-balanced character, mak a conbinafion as enviable as it is rare; on the other hand, the fair bride is one of those loveable characters, whose purity and graces bind to her, in indissoluable ties, all with whom she comes in contact. It was affirmed with no insincerity that after the ceremony was finished friends flocked up in scores and heartily congratulated Mr. Currier on the prize wooed and won. At half past eight last evening Mr. Packard's residence was crowded with guests, all anxious by their presence and participation to wish the young couple God-speed in their entrance upon a new and untried life. It had been originally intended to hold the ceremonies upon the lawn outside, where scores of illuminated Chinese lanterns would cast a quiet and subdued light upon all concerned, and where the solemn words of the minister would mingle with the free air of Nature; but unfortunately the rain clouds gathered and winds swept down the Poudre valley in whistling gusts, so that windows and doors d to be closed and shelter be sought. It was nearly nine o'clock before the bridal party descended the stairs and entered the north parlor, where Mr. Packard awaited their coming, while the guests thronged parior and hall in quiet, interested expectation. To the right of the groom, as they took their stand in the bay window and faced their gathered friends, stood Mr. W. C. Packard, brother of the bride and to the left of the bride was Miss Minnie Emerson, the two acting as groomsman and bridesmaid. When all was quiet and the parties had taken their positions, Mr. Packard began ceremonies with questions. Of the two, the bride was much the less nervous, while Mr. Currier had his face drawn in hard lines that showed the mastery of will over the weakness of ervous feeling, but his replies were firm and clear, and uttered with a ringing determination lhat left no room of doubt as to their sincerity. When the questions and answers were finished, the ring placed upon the finger, the last ministerial words spoken, all heads bowed, as the aged father and able clergyman appealed to the Almighty that blessings might follow all that had been done and the newly married couple live out lives cf Christian usefulness, and when the "amen" had been spoken -- a finality that found a hearty, responsive echo in every heart present -- Ihe ladies and gentlemen pushed forward in couples lo offer their congratulations. In the meantime willing hands were lighting the lanterns and swinging them from trees that fringed the lawn, and as each couple passed the bride and groom, they moved on out to the open air, and promenaded between rows of picturesque red, white and blue lights, that lined the walks. Perhaps some of these couples began the necessary steps that some day would, end in a like occasion -- perhaps there were words whispered that will yet bear fruit perhaps well, perhaps there were, but the reporter declines to publicly state, all he suspects -- all he knows. The bride was dressed in a beautiful and tightly fitting dress of while brocade silk, trimmed with white satin, and over this from the four head trailed orange blossoms, while a long train finished off the effect, which, to say the least, was exceedingly pleasing to the eye. The groom was clad in the regulation black, which served as a capital setting for the whiteness of his slighter companion. Among the guests- ia deal of much pretty dressing was noticeable, and the effect of the scene to the eye of a beholder was a pleasant one in a very high degree. Following the congratulations, the dining room was thrown open and the guests thronged nto it to partake of a bountiful collation of ice cream and lemonade, and all through the balance of the evening a constant stream was passing in and out, nibbling at the refreshments, so to speak. In an upper room were the presents of the fair bride -a notable array of pretty things, of considerable intrinsic value. Among these were noticed: Diamond earrings, a lady Elgin watch and chain and an upright piano, from Judge Currier; gold thimble from Mrs. Currier; silver table ware, Rev. A. K.
