Married, at the residence of H.B. Tingle, Esq., March 7, 1888, at 2 o’clock p.m., Andrew Briner and Miss Mabel McGrew, Rev. Craven officiating. Briner is a young man of exemplary character and sterling qualities of heart and mind, and well calculated to plan a bright future for his bride, who is one of Perrydale’s fairest daughters. We commend Miss Mabel on her choice of a fine and noble husband, and to say that he could not have done better but expresses the sentiment of their many friends. They young couple went to housekeeping soon after the marriage in the house formerly occupied by J. Likens. Thus our daughters leave us, just as they have learned to love. A stranger comes through the village and carries off its fairest daughters.—Perrydale, March 20.
