A very pleasing event took
place Wednesday evening, 10 Jul 1901, at the residence of the
bride's parents in this town when Miss
Lena Henderson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alex. Henderson, and
Herbert W. Clark, dress goods salesman in Northway, Anderson &
Falls', were united in marriage.
Promptly at six o'clock the
bride came in leaning upon her father's arm. She was ably supported
by her sister, Miss Ada Henderson. Miss Ethel Clark was maid of
honor, and Mr. W. E. Maxwell of Ridgetown acted as best man.
The bride was tastefully
attired in white organdie trimmed with satin and lace, and carried a
boquet of white roses.
The brief, simple, yet
impressive marriage service was read and the two were made one
by the Rev. D. W. Snider, pastor of the Methodist church.
The parlor was beautifully
decorated, the ceremony being performed under a magnificent floral
The bridal party and guests
repairing to the lawn, where flags and bunting were much in
evidence, ample justice was done to a beautiful repast.
Mr. and Mrs. Clark left on
the evening train for St. Thomas, thence to Syracuse, N.Y.
At the station the party was
met by a crows of friends and, the train being fortunately about
half an hour late, nought that mischievous ingenuity could devise,
was left undone.
