Currie - Eudaley Wedding (1902)

Earlington Bee (Earlington, Kentucky) 5 June 1902, p. 7


At 1:30 p.m. Tuesday June 3rd at the M.E. church south Nebo., Ky., Rev. B.M. Curry of this city and Miss Fannie Eudaley, of Nebo, were united in the holy bonds of wedlock. The ceremony was performed by Rev. J. H. Harrison, President of Vanderbilt training school Elkton, Ky., under whom the groom graduated.

The church was beautifully and attractively decorated by Mrs. J. T. Robards, and Miss Lillian Robards played the wedding march with her usual charming skill. Ushers Robt. Payne and Travis Sights seated the large crowd as best they could, but the house was far to small to accomodate the many friends of the bride and groom.

Mr. Minnos Cox and Miss Nannie Winstead were waiters. The bride was dressed in pure white and the groom in solid black. After the ceremony they were driven to Earlington where a sumptuous repast was partaken of with Mr. and Mrs. Y. Q. Walker and the happy couple left on the eleven o'clock train for the groom's home in Brownsville, Tenn., where they will spend the honey moon. We sincerely hope the guiding star if true love may ever shine down the dim vistas of thier coming days and light the journey along the pathway of life, rest o'er their couch when time with them shall be no more, then pilot them to their appointed places in the heavens where it will continue its ceasless revolutions around the glittering throne of His Majesty on high.
