Amanuensis Monday - McCorn-Weatherell Nuptials


This wedding announcement was found in the scrapbook of Mrs. John L. Puff of Newfield. The articles in this book are dated between 1890 and 1912, so I suspect this wedding took place within those years.

Wedding bells have been ringing again in Newfield (NY). The house of Mr. and Mrs. Wm H. Weatherell was the scene of joyous festivity yesterday afternoon at the marriage of their daughter Maggie to Wm. A. McCorn. The bride was elegantly attired in wine-colored silk, en train. The floral decorations were very beautiful, and were artistically arranged by Mrs. David Keppel and excited considerable comment. Among the guests present were Mrs. Geo. Cox, Miss Rose Broadhurst and Mr. Thomas Bradley, all of Elmira; Mrs. O.D. Smith of Syracuse, Rev. Noble Palmer of Buffalo performed the ceremony according to the Episcopal rite. Mr. and Mrs. McCorn left on the 6:25 p.m. train for Buffalo where Mr. McCorn is to pursue his medical studies at the Buffalo Medical College. May joy and prosperity go with them is the wish of their many friends.
