Winfield Courier, Thursday, February 19, 1885.
The drug house of Q. A. Glass has received a decoration at the hands of A. B. Roberts that gives it a very citified appearance. The walls are artistically decorated with inlaid paper of beautiful design, fairly reflecting the handsome “phizzes” of Mr. Glass and his popular assistants.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, July 9, 1885.
Justice Snow united in the holy bonds of matrimony Thursday, Alonzo B. Roberts and Miss Nellie McCormick. Mr. Roberts is of the firm of Roberts & Nelson, painters in this city. Miss McCormick has lived in this city some time. We wish them much joy, a long life, a happy old age.
                                           WEDDING ANNOUNCEMENTS.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, July 9, 1885.
THE COURIER don’t like to give anything away—and we won’t. But we caught him in the act Thursday and here goes; but don’t tell anybody just yet—it hasn’t come off. Mr. Alonzo B. Roberts, one of Winfield’s substantial young men, was granted a license Thursday to lead to the altar Miss Nellie McCormick. Now, we predict that he will shoot us for this—with some fine cigars. Samuel S. Hamlin and Susan McQuain were also given the certificate, Saturday evening, that has made them one.

The home of A. B. Roberts, the painter on 8th avenue, was struck last evening by a beam of sunshine in the shape of a sweet little girl that weighs eight pounds and A. B. wears a broad smile this morning and steps very high. We congratulate Mr. and Mrs. Roberts.
Roberts & Toplin, Winfield...
Winfield Courier, Thursday, March 18, 1886.
Roberts & Toplin, the painters, are out with their paint wagon, which is as pretty as a spring daisy.
