Corbitt – Cobb.
Pretty Marriage at Atlanta Last Saturday Evening.

A very pretty wedding in which the people of Cartersville are interested, took place in Atlanta last Saturday evening, at the residence of Mrs. R. W. Satterfield, 146 S. Pryor street.  There Mr. Cooper Cobb was united in marriage to Miss Estelle G. Corbitt, of Talladega, Ala.  The marriage which was a surprise to many Cartersvillians, was to have taken place several weeks ago but on account of the illness of the young lady, was postponed.

For the past year Mrs. Cobb has been teaching elocution in the Female College at Douglasville, Ga.  There she was a great favorite with both faculty and students as well as with the general public, and it was with much regret they gave her up. She is the daughter of Mrs. J. R. Barrett, of Talladega, and is a young woman of many rare charms both of person and character.  She will be a decided acquisition to the society of Cartersville.  Mr. Cobb is the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. S. Cobb, of Cartersville.  He is well and favorably known to the people of Bartow, among whom his life has been spent.  He is in the railway mail service on the run between Cartersville and Talladega.

By mutual consent the young people met in Atlanta last Saturday evening at the residence of Mrs. R. W. Satterfield, and there the ceremony that made them husband and wife was performed by Rev. Alex. W. Bealer.  There were present besides the minister and the contracting parties, Mrs. Satterfield, Misses Annie and Ruby Satterfield, Miss Jessie Cobb, Mrs. Florence Obear, Mr. Ron Satterfield, Miss Burton Cobb, Mr. Frank Satterfield, Mr. Geo. S. Cobb, Jr., and Mr. Jack Cobb.

Mr. and Mrs. Cobb are at home to their friends at the residence of his father on Erwin street.
