McLean, Mary (23 NOV 1927)

Lieutenant Charles Frederick Cresswell, U. S. Navy, and Miss Mary McLean, daughter of Captain and Mrs. Norman T. McLean, were married at the home of the bride's parents at Norfolk, Va., Nov. 23, 1927. It was a military wedding, about 100 guests being present, mostly relatives and naval officers.

The groom is the son of Dr. W. B. Cresswell of Neillsville, Clark County, Wis. He grew to manhood here, graduated from Neillsville High School and secured an appointment as cadet in the U. S. Naval Academy, where he graduated in 1924. He has since been in the Naval service and is now stationed at the Army Signal School, Fort Monmouth, N.J. Lieut. Cresswell has visited here from time to time during his naval training, and is one of the young men of whom this community is justly proud.

The bride has also grown up with naval traditions, her father being long a naval officer and still in the service at the Norfolk Navy yard. She attended the Wykeham Rise School at Washington, Conn., and the Garland School, Boston, later taking a trip around the world and studying for a time in Paris.

They will make their home at Ocean Port, Fort Monmouth, N.J.

The Press extends heartiest congratulations and best wishes.
