Patton---Jackson—The marriage of Miss Fannie, only daughter of Mr. Zimri Jackson, of Bartow county, near Cartersville, to Colonel James E. Patton, of Lafayette, was celebrated at the residence of the bride’s parents on the morning of the 23d of October, the Rev. Mr. Stipe of Kingston, officiating. The attendants were Miss Eliza Venable, of Bartow county, and Mr. Duke Harris, of Walker; Miss Anna Saxon, of Bartow, and Mr. William Withers, of Walker; Miss Helen Chunn, of Bartow, and Mr. George Napier, of Walker; Miss Mamie Gilbert, of Cartersville, and Mr. C. A. Cameron, of Rome; Miss Lizzie Lumpkin, of Bartow, and Mr. Oliver Williams, of Cartersville. The bride and her maidens were dressed very becomingly, and looked very sweet, and I was proud that our neighborhood could produce so much loveliness. The lucky groom and his attendants looked like very decent young men. The numerous presents showed the high estimation entertained for the bride by her numerous friends. A large concourse of friends attended the happy couple on their bridal tour, which will embrace the Louisville exposition and other places of note. Fannie has left us, and I hope that she will find as many new friends in her new home in Walker county as she left here in old Bartow. The bereft old father and mother have my deep sympathy. They must remember that it is the same old, old story: “bring up a child, and away she will go.”
