Wilson, Mary (8 SEP 1909)

Wedding bells, so long silent in Humbird, Clark County, Wis., again sounded their merry chimes at the home of one of our village fathers, Mr. Orin Wilson. On Sept. 8, 1909, his youngest daughter Mary was united in marriage to Mr. Elmer A. Austin of Abbotsford, Rev. A. E. Smith officiating. At the time appointed for the ceremony, Mrs. Earl Grush at the piano, played the wedding march, while the bride and groom advanced to their place in the parlor, accompanied by Mr. John Wilson and Miss Mamie Brandstedter. The usual congratulations followed the ceremony, after which the members of the company evinced their appreciation of a richly prepared table and the joy of good fellowship. The bride also favored the company with several solos with her usual charm.

The sympathetic clouds showed their regret at the loss of one of the amiable daughters by weeping just long enough to lay the dust. A short time after the ceremony, which was performed at 2:30, and while the sumptuous repast was being enjoyed by the guests, the sun shone out with a radiant smile of approval and blessing on the young couple just starting out on life's journey. The company consisted of a few of the relatives of the bride and groom with several old friends of the family.

The following were present: Miss Dorathea Masters, Mrs. Blanch Grush, S. B. Wilson, Mrs. E. W. Whitehead, Mr. and Mrs. E. S. Austin, Clyde Whitehead, Mrs. H. S. Corliss, Harriet Corliss, Mrs. Etta Babler, Mrs. A. E. Smith, E. A. Webster, Orin Wilson, Jr., A. D. Wilson, Mr. and Mrs. Orin Wilson.

While we shall greatly miss the voice of one of our sweet singers in the choir and her presence at our religious and social gatherings, we congratulate this happy pair and follow them with our best wishes for their prosperity and good fortune in their new home in Abbotsford.
