Adair County Marriages


Adair County News, December 18, 1901

Tomorrow Mr. Horace Jeffries, of the firm W.F. Jeffries & Son, and Miss Minnie Marshall, a popular teacher of Glenville, will be married at the home of the intended bride's brother, Mr. James Marshall, Rev. Z.T. Williams officiating. The couple had contemplated a trip to Louisville and other cities, but the extreme cold weather prevents. In a very short time this happy couple will become residents of Columbia and will occupy the cottage the intended groom recently purchased of Mr. J.M. Traylor. The coming event will be the result of a long and devoted courtship. May happiness be with them continuously as they go hand in hand down the stream of Time.
