Follows text of my wife's grandmother's engagement picture from the Houston, MS newspaper. Don't know the date, but Theda Bara and Lillian Gish are mentioned as being in current movies on the flip side of the clipping. Also have pictures.

If you have a connection, please reply.


"Mississippi Girl Will Be a June Bride"

"One of Mississippi (sic) most popular and beautiful brides-to-be is Miss Laura Wildie Roane of Houston, Miss. On June 14, the month of brides and roses and when every part of nature is singing the gladsome tunes of summer, Miss Roane will become the wife of A.C. Dominick of Little Rock, Ark. Miss Roane is the daughter of the late Simeon M. Roane of West Point, Miss.; a niece of Judge A.T. Roane of Grenada, Miss.; and Judge W.A. Roane of Atlanta, Ga.; great-granddaughter of Gov. Archibald Roane of Tennessee and great-grandneice of Gov. John Seldon Roane of Arkansas. The groom-to-be is the son of Mr. Alonzo Dominick of West Point, Miss. After the marriage and honeymoon the happy couple will make their home in Little Rock, where Mr. Dominick is prominently connected with business institutions."
