A lightly edited partial transcription of the Port Dover column on page 10 of the 6 Nov 1919 issue of the Simcoe Reformer newspaper, under the banner "Too late for last week."


At the residence of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph S. Smith, Miss Viola Adelaide Smith became the bride of Charles Alexander, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Snively of Hamilton, on Monday 20 Oct 1919.

The bride was attended by her sister, Miss Agnes Smith, while the groom was supported by his cousin, Mr. Bruce Snively of Waterford.

The ceremony was performed by the Rev. H. Brand, in the presence of 50 relatives and near friends. Guests were present from Port Ryerse, Hamilton, London, Waterford, Simcoe, Palmerston and other points.

The happy couple left on a wedding trip to Niagara Falls, Buffalo and New York. Mr. and Mrs. Snively will reside at 157 Wilson St., Hamilton.



The following is clipped from The London Echo:

Knox Presbyterian Church, South London, was the scene of a quiet wedding on Tuesday at high noon, when Melen [sic] Isabel Symington of Port Dover, daughter of Mrs. James Symington, was united in marriage to Mr. William Turner Barron of Niagara Falls, Ontario.

Rev. T. A. Symington, brother of the bride, officiated at the ceremony. 

The bride looked handsome in her traveling suit of reindeer gray tricotine, with hat and shoes to match, and wore a corsage bouquet of Ophelia roses. She was given in marriage by her brother-in-law, Mr. Norman Holden of Port Dover.

After the ceremony a luncheon was served at the home of the bride's brother, Rev. T. A. Symington, only the immediate member of the family being present.


Mrs. Norman Holden has returned from Niagara Falls, Ont., after a week with her mother, Mrs. James Symington, who now resides in that city.
