10. LACY - DORROH
Vernon Clipper, March 5, 1880
Mr. Editor: On Wednesday morning, 25th ult, a party consisting of CAPT. D. J. LACY, Mr. ALEX. A. WALL, and his estimable lady, MR. EDDIE MORTON and myself left here for Pickens County, to attend the Wedding of the first named gentleman. After crossing Yellow Creek Swamp we got upon firm road and moved off very quietly. We called at the gate of that enterprising gentleman Dr. COLLINS to procure some provider for our stock, which he furnished us in abundance; and upon his refusing any remuneration we told him to come up and get his pay by eating from our table and feeding his horse from our barn. We called a halt at a small stream, fed our stock, and had an elegant lunch, prepared by Mrs. Wall and Capt. Lacy, which was extensively enjoyed by all. We were soon under head-way again passing many beautiful farms, gardens and dwellings, most of which exhibits to the passer-by the fact that there is an energetic go-ahead man in charge. Near sun set we arrived at the house of Mr. JOEL F. DORRAH. Some introductions were passed. Several beautiful smileing (sic) faces could be seen moving here and there all bright and hansom (sic). About 7:30 it was announced that all were ready, the door were thrown open and in came CAPT. L. leaning upon his arm was the beautiful MISS MARY DORROH, soon to be made Mrs. LACY. They stood about the middle of the room in front of the Rev. Mr. MCKEE, when in about a minute and a half formally pronounced them man and wife in the name of the Holy Trinity. There and then we decided that Pickens society had lost one of its best and most accomplished members and Lamar had gained it, and in the transaction Capt. LACY had gained for the better half. About this time supper was announced, and we walked out to a table loaded with good things that we think would have satisfied the most fastidious epicure. Supper being over some of the young people proposed a moon-light stroll to the banks of the stream near by which was very pleasant we know. That morning we added to our party MISS PARRIE and ELLA DORRAH, Miss MOLLIE KENNEDY, Mr. JOE DORROH, and Mr. SHELTON. On our return we called to see the new mill and wool cards of the clever energetic DR. KENNDEY. Such machinery as that under the supervision of such a man as Dr. K. cannot be otherwise than a great benefit to the community. We commend him and his machinery to the favorable consideration of the Public. From the mill we crossed Luxapalila, stopping at a small stream we alighted; seating ourselves around a well filled basket we soon devoured its contents, but in justice to the party we must say that Mr. WALL and one other gentleman were the principal actors in this game. At this point the horse back riders of the caravan proposed to go ahead. Acting as advance guards or heralds we informed the crowd of eager lookers, in Vernon, that the bride and groom was some distance behind. His information quieted things down for awhile. About four and a half p.m.; the carriages drove up in front of CAPT. LACY’S residence where quite a large company of friends and relatives were in waiting to welcome him and his new bride home. We will now draw the curtains over this scene of pleasantness and joy by wishing the newly married couple a long prosperous and a happy life.

13. BANKHEAD - SUMMERS
Vernon Clipper, March 19, 1880
MARRIED – At the residence of the bride’s father, Mr. A. A. SUMMERS, on the evening of the 11th inst., by Rev. J. J. CROW, MR. G. EVANS BANKHEAD and MISS DONZELLA SUMMERS. A more beautiful bride we have never seen led to the hymenial altar, than was led by Mr. Bankhead on this occasion. It has never been our privilege to attend a wedding that afforded more pleasure than this one. Judging from the pleasant look worn by the groom at the close of the ceremony, we interpret the language of his heart thus:
“Thou hast vowed by they faith my Donnie
By that pretty white hand of thine
And by all the loving stars in Heaven
That thou wouldst ever be mine.
And I have sworn by my faith my Donnie
And by that kind heart of thine
By all the stars sown thick o’er Heaven
That thou shalt ever be mine.
Foul be the hands would loose such love
And the heart that would break such ties,
But there’s no hand can loose the bond
But the fingers of Him above.
       The supper was a complete success; everything on the heavy laden table was gorgeous, rich, and tastefully arranged, in a word it was superb.
       On the morning of the 13th, a party from Vernon accompanied the newly married couple to the bride-grooms residence, three miles north of Moscow, where a host of friends and relatives, and sumptuous dinner awaited their arrival. – The ladies superintending the arrangement of the table were MRS. MARGARET BANKHEAD, MRS. ADALINE CANTRELL and MISS KATE JONES. The table formed a hollow square. It was perfectly grand and equal to any. We bid the happy couple adiew with the following lines:
“Oh, May the hopes that wrestle in Donnie’s gladsome heart today,
Be ever bright as now, and life for the young bride display
Its fairest sunniest side. May gentle peace her smile bestow
Illuming thy coming years with a ray of Eden’s glow,
And happiness with seraph tones be thy heart’s guest,
Making thy life all beautiful and bright and purely blest.
Oh Happy Green! Who has pledged they marriage vow,
Preserve it always in thy heart as sacredly as now
Take her, the fair, young, trusting bride, and love her ever, ever,
And may your heart’s pure fervent love flow on in joy forever.
Nourish her dearly, near thy soul for thou today has won
The fairest, purest lily that the sun ever shown upon.
May fate with lavish hand for both, her choicest sweets distill.
And guardian angels hover near, keeping you from all ill.
Leading you on in peace and joy, o’er like’s broad rolling sea
Till anchored where life’s love still lives in immortality.”

We were not present, neither were we the recipient of the usual cake and wine the printer or his d—l, but we are informed by those who were there, that it was a splendid affair, that the supper was one of unusual attraction to which the numerous guests did ample justice.

A HAPPY MARRIAGE
       Last Sunday will be long remembered as one of remarkable interest in the history of Vernon, Lamar having no Probate Judge the general expectation has been that marrying would have to cease until an appointment be made. But such ideas have proven erroneous by the romantic marriage of Dr. F. L. MORTON and Miss EUNICE MCLAINE. About 10 o’clock Christmas morning the bride and groom with a number of friends set out for Lowndes County Mississippi. Though the weather was extremely cold and the snow lay everywhere yet the sun shone forth in all his brilliancy and made a magnificent Christmas Sunday. A more beautiful day could not have been chosen. The scenery along the entire route was grand beyond description. All nature seemed to be attired, especially for the occasion in her costliest robe. The sun shining though the pure crystal snow supported by the green pine boughs afforded a scene rarely excelled in loveliness. At about 2 o’clock pm the merry party arrived at its designation, the residence of Mr. THOMAS SMITH, where Rev. G. L. HEWITT, (after being assured that there could be no question in regard to being on Mississippi soil, performed, in a most solemn manner, the ceremony which made “Two hearts beat as one.” With but a short delay the jovial throng was again on the road speeding gaily in the direction of Vernon. Arriving at Col. T. B. NESMITH’S a few hours later, the bridal party was met by a pleasant crowd of friends and sincere congratulations offered. After an elegant supper at which all fared sumptuously, the crowd retired to the parlor were the remainder of the evening was most pleasantly spent. None could fail to appreciate the excellent music furnished by Mrs. S. J. SHIELDS and Col. NESMITH. Repartee was also indulged in freely.
