A lightly edited transcription of the Simcoe column on page 8 of the 3 Oct 1901 issue of the Waterford Star newspaper.


A wedding that was of interest to the numerous friends of the contracting parties was solemnized on Wednesday afternoon at the residence of the bride's parents, Simcoe.

The fortunate young man in the case was Frederick Thompson Brook, eldest son of Joseph Brook. The wife he has won was Miss Eillie Estella, only daughter of Richard Johnson.

The ceremony was performed by Rev. D. Dack, assisted by Rev. R. Hicks, in a room made specially attractive for the occasion by a generous use of palms and flowers and handsome hangings.

There were assembled to witness it, a number of smartly dressed gowned people, relatives interested.

The bride wore an attractive dress of white creme de chene over white silk, with the customary bridal train and veil and carried a boquet of white roses.

The bridesmaids were Miss Palmerton of Simcoe and Miss Brook of Listowel, who wore pink and white respectively.
The groom was supported by 
Dr. L. C. Wadsworth of Simcoe.

After the ceremony, the guests were entertained to luncheon.

Mr. and Mrs. Brooks then took the 5.20 train for New York.
