A pretty wedding on Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 30th, was that of Miss
Abigail Stanton to Mr. Reuben Rogers Beasley, of Cartersville, which took
place at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Stanton,
on Main Street, Newborn. The ceremony at 3 o'clock was impressively performed
by Rev. J. D. Milton, and there was present to witness only a family gathering.
As the people marched in by the strains of the wedding march, rendered
sweetly by Miss Mary Speer, they paused just in front of a bank of beautiful
palms and ferns, under a bell suspended by garland of green.
The bride wore a handsome tailored suit of peacock blue, the coat opening
over a hand embroidered net waist, a fur toque and a handsome set of sable
furs completed the costume.
Mr. and Mrs. Beasley, with the bridal party, left on the 4 o'clock train
for Atlanta, and in Covington were entertained between trains at an informal
reception given by Mrs. Evans Lunsford. They left Atlanta the next afternoon
for his home, where a reception was tendered them.
Mrs. Beasley as Miss Abigail Stanton was a graduate of the G. N. &
I. College of Milledgeville, and one of Newborn's most highly cultured
young ladies, who numbers her friends by the score.
Mr. Beasley is one of Bartow county's most substantial business men,
and has a host of friends throughout Georgia and Tennessee.
