1908 - FINDLEY-ZUCK Wedding
Mr. Reich A. Findley and Miss Mabel E. Zuck Wedding - December 30, 1908.
One of the prettiest weddings that has taken place for some time was on Wednesday at high noon, when Mr. Reich A. Findley and Miss Mabel E. Zuck were united in marriage at the home of her parents six miles east of Hamburg.
This wedding has been looked forward to, for some time, and as both bride and groom are among our most prominent young people the interest in their welfare was quite widely evident. They are both prominent, she having been organist for a number of years at Madison church. Both are liked by every one and, as “all the world loves a lover,” everyone has been interested in their courtship.
The home of Mr. and Mrs. John Zuck was the center of attraction on Wednesday, December 30, ’08, about 40 guests were invited to witness this ceremony. The wedding march was played by Oletta Ackley, a cousin of the bride, and promptly at 12 o’clock the bride and groom descended the stairs, unattended, and took their places near the bay window where they were met by the officiating clergyman, Rev. Joe Stephen, of Farragut, pastor of the M. E. church.
The corner was decorated in Christmas green and carnations under which hung three white Christmas bells. The bride wore a gown of white batiste trimmed in embroidery silk bands. The groom wore the conventional black. The wedding dinner was served by Miss Nellie Zuck, sister of the bride, Mrs. Andy Barnes and Mrs. Bina Holtsinger.
Mr. and Mrs. Findley expect to make their home after March 1st near Richmond, South Dakota, where he has purchased a farm. They received many nice presents, valuable and useful as well as ornamental, which are very material evidence of the esteem and affection of their many friends.
