Berth Bell Lewis’s wedding to Horace Llewellyn Stone
Center front page on the October 21, 1886 Bradford Republican
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. Stone.

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.
