Married in South Carolina.
Charles Akerman, Formerly of This City, Weds Miss Davis, of Clinton, S. C.

A dispatch from Clinton, S. C. says:
A pretty wedding of the week was that of Mr. Charles Akerman, of Macon, Ga., to Miss Sara J. Davis, one of the most attractive and popular young ladies of this community.  Mrs. Akerman is a daughter of Mr. John C. Davis, a large planter and prominent citizen of this county.  She is widely connected and is descended from men who made history in South Carolina both during the revolution and the civil war.

The bride came in with her brother, Mr. Jack H. Davis, who gave her away.  She wore a becoming traveling dress.

The bride’s sisters, Mrs. J. Q. Phillips and Miss Agatha Davis, were matron and maid of honor.  Her niece, little Miss Emily Phillips, was flower girl, while her nephew, Master Wier Davis, acted as ringbearer.  The ushers were Messrs. R. J. Copeland, Jr., R. C. Philson, James R. Davis and W. W. Davis, the two last being brothers of the bride.

The choir of the Presbyterian church sang the wedding chorus from Tannhouser as the party entered and as they left the church.  Mrs. Jones, of Laurens, sang “Oh Promise Me,” during the ceremony, which was performed by Dr. W. P. Jacobs, the pastor.

On the evening of the 19th a reception at which about one hundred people were present was given the bridal party at the home of Dr. and Mrs. J. Q. Phillips.

Mr. and Mrs. Akerman left on the noon train for Atlanta and Macon, followed by many good wishes.
