Married in Toronto

On Saturday 15 Nov 1919, Port Rowan lost two more of her popular young ladies, when Edna M. Snook, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Snooks, became the bride of George C. Barnes, and May Palmerston, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Palmerston, became the wife of Bailey Kelly, only son of Mr. and Mrs. J. Kelly of Simcoe. 

The brides are cousins. The grooms have both recently returned from overseas.

The happy couples were married in Toronto, the former by the Rev. A. I. Terryberry, Methodist minister, at 2.15 p.m. while the latter were married by Rev. Dr. Graham, Baptist minister, at 1.20 p.m. 

After the ceremonies the party was given a very dainty luncheon by Mrs. Earl Slack, an aunt of the brides.

They left later for Niagara Falls, Buffalo and St. Catharines, the brides wearing navy serge suits and black hats. Mrs. Barnes wore a beautiful set of black fox furs, the gift of the groom, and Mrs. Kelly wore red fox furs, the groom's gift in this instance being a beautiful pearl necklace.

The best of good wishes go with them from a host of friends in Port Rowan and vicinity. They will live in Toronto on their return.
