Wedding Bells
On Thursday, February 6th, 1896, about fifty friends and relatives were assembled at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Hukill, near Sully, to witness the marriage of their youngest daughter, Bessie, to Mr. John Croy. Rev. A. Rouse was the officiating clergyman.
At twelve o’clock, Miss Grace Hukill, niece of the bride, began the wedding march and soon the bridal couple entered the parlor, preceded by Mr. Robert Lanaberry and Miss Ivy Mendenhall. Amid the oppressive silence the solemn vows were taken, and two loving hearts were bound together in the golden bands of matrimony.
After congratulations, a bountiful repast was served to the company. The bride was becomingly attired in a costume of pale blue henrietta cloth, trimmed with white lace and ribbon. The groom wore the conventional black. They are both well known in our community and respected by all who know them. A number of valuable and useful presents were received, showing the high esteem in which they are held by their many friends.
The newly married couple left Monday morning for Hubbard, where they will visit the bride’s sister, Mrs. O. Cable and family. After their return they will be found on the farm north of town.
Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Hukill and family were present from Des Moines. A reception was given on Friday by the groom’s parents.
