|On Thursday, Oct. 14th, at 12 o’clock M, a company
of 46 besides the family, in all 52 in number, gathered at the house of
Mr. and Mrs. Oakley Lewis, in Leroy, to witness the marriage of their only
daughter, Bertha, to Llewellyn Stone, only son and only child of W. B.
It was a highly pleasant event and a happy occasion. The marriage
service was performed by Elder Moyer, of East Canton. There were guests
from Troy, Canton, East Canton, Monroe, Granville and Le Roy. On
arriving at the residence of Mr. Lewis’s one could see no little pains
had been taken in making elaborate preparation for the occasion. On entering
the parlor, the blinds being closed and lamps lighted, added beauty and
gravity to the scene, while the tables were arrayed with presents, both
useful and ornamental, beside in a side room adjoining was a very handsome
bed room suit from the bride’s parents, and among the presents was a nice
large bible from the grooms parents, _______ set, a toilet set, three very
pretty vases, two pickle castors, a butter dish with silver top, a number
of articles in glassware and other things too numerous to mention.
After a few moments had been spent in social intercourse, the bride and
groom and their attendants were escorted into the parlor preceded by the
Elder, who in due form of law pronounced them husband and wife.
After the ceremony and the usual congratulations, we were invited to
a bountifully spread table, the quality of which gave great credit to the
hostess. The bride was becomingly attired in a dress of light blue and
white. Soon after 2 o’clock the bridal company took their departure
to attend the marriage of Miss Ettie Ross and Mr. Seigal Holcomb, and in
company with them went to Towanda. Although the day was a little
misty, it was preferable to the heat and dust of a few days previous.
A Witness. LeRoy, Oct. 17th.
