A lightly edited transcription of a page 1 article from 8 Jan 1920 Simcoe Reformer. 


On Wednesday, Jan. 7th, at St. John's Church, Woodhouse, Mr. Russell Wilson and Miss Bertha Nichol of Simcoe were married by the Rev. James Ward.

The bride's sister, Miss Lillian Nichol, was bridesmaid, and little Thelma Start made a sweet little flower girl. 
The groom was supported by Mr. Gordon Palmerton. 
The bride entered the church with her brother, 
Mr. Albert Nichol.

As Mr. Wilson has lived all his life in the neighborhood, with the exception of three years spent overseas, his marriage to the charming young lady he has chosen to bring to his old home was a matter of much interest to the members of this old parish church, who came to witness the event.

The many beautiful presents which included a substantial cheque from the bride's father, were much admired.

Mr. and Mrs. John Wilson, father and mother of the groom, entertained the guests in their usual hospitable manner. The tables were beautifully decorated and after the wedding breakfast the happy couple went off on their honeymoon. On their return, Mr. and Mrs. Wilson will reside in the old home.
