Griffith, Florence (Marriage - 17 JUN 1914)

On Wednesday, June 17th, 1914 at 1:30 o’clock, a very pretty wedding occurred at the home of Mr. and Mrs. E.J. Griffith, when their daughter Florence was united in marriage to Lloyd Watters, Rev. G. Nogle officiating.

The bride’s sisters Laura and Edna Hellman of Oshkosh were bridesmaids, while the groom’s brother, Virgil, and Glen Robinson attended the groom.

The room was tastily decorated and at the appointed time the bridal party descended the stairs and took their places to the strains of Lohengrin’s Bridal March played by Miss M. Constance Hamilton, accompanist of Mrs. William of Marshfield. The music was continued softly throughout the ceremony, after which the bridal party and guests sat down to an elaborate wedding dinner.

The bride wore the customary bridal veil and a beautiful gown of white silk draped with shadow lace. The groom was dressed in the conventional manner.

The bride is a young lady of rare refinement and intelligence. To her natural grace of person and manner have been added a beautiful home training under the care and direction of wise and earnest Christian parents. As a student in the Neillsville schools, in social contact with the young people here and in her work in the Woelffer Drug Store she has shown herself well worthy of the friendship which she has won on every hand.

The groom is the son of Mrs. J. Watters, whose home is just north of this city (Neillsville, Clark County). He graduated from Neillsville High School in 1911 and after some experience in other lines has gone back to the farm. He is a splendid young man, bright of mind, upright in character and strong and athletic physically. The young couple will make their home at the Watters farm, where they went immediately after the wedding to take up the duties of farm and home.

Guests from out of town were Miss Edna Hellman of Oshkosh, Miss Grace Dean of Lake Mills, Mrs. J.B. Hamilton and daughter, Miss M. Constance, of Marshfield. Among the relatives present, four generations of the family were represented.
