Two Popular Young People Took the Matrimonial Vow at the Bride’s Home
At 6:30 o’clock last Sunday evening — a gracious time for the plighting of troth — two of our popular young people took the matrimonial vow at the home of the bride.
This was the marriage of Earl N. Baldwin, son of Mr. and Mrs. Nelson Baldwin, and Mertie, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M.C. Rorick — a social happening of much intreest in which only immediate relatives participated, and a joyous bringing together of two prominent and well known families.
Rev. T.C. Jones, the congregational pastor, officiated, and after the ceremony supper was served to the company.
There is but a single day’s difference in the ages of the young people, who are approaching 22.
The bride is an estimable and accomplished young lady, who, following her high school graduation, successfully engaged in teaching. The bridgegroom is an energetic young man, of excellence business capacity, who for some time has been employed in G.W. Guss’s hardware store.
In happy youth they begin life together under most favorable circumstances, and we truly hope that they realize that which is heartily wished them by a host of relatives and friends.
