The marriage of Miss Mary Gertrude Baillie, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Byron B. Baillie of Norfolk Street North, Simcoe, to Mr. Thomas Lloyd Rivers of Exeter, took place Sunday morning, 4 Apr 1920.

The service was read by the rector of Trinity church, Rev. A. B. Farney, and the bride was given away by her father in the presence of immediate families and relatives.

After the ceremony the young couple left for a short honeymoon trip west. On their return they will take up residence in Merlin.

Mr. and Mrs. Rivers are held in high esteem in Simcoe, where they have a host of friends that join in congratulations.

The young bride had exceptional gifts that endeared her to her associates.

At the outbreak  of the war, the bridegroom was on the staff of  the Molsons Bank here, and with three brothers enlisted promptly for overseas. They all returned -- the groom of Sunday with a decoration for distinguished service.
