Truitt – Price.
The Marriage of Mr. Truitt, of LaGrange, to one of Cartersville’s Sweetest and Most Popular Young Ladies.

On Tuesday evening December 23, 1884, at 5 o’clock p. m., Mr. Alf T. Truitt, of LaGrange, and Miss Ida Price, of this city were married, Rev. J. B. Robins officiating.  The attendants were Miss Sallie Parrott and Miss Mamie Wikle, of Cartersville, Miss Lizzie Trammel, of Dalton, and Miss Lizzie Traylor, of LaGrange.  The ceremony was performed at the residence of the bride’s mother on Erwin street, in the presence of a few invited friends and the immediate relatives of the bride.  Some beautiful and very expensive presents in silver and china ware were received by the bride.  Almost immediately after the marriage ceremony was performed the happy couple left for Atlanta and spent the night at the Markham house, proceeding from there to LaGrange which is to be their future home.

Mr. Truitt is to be congratulated.  He is an energetic and successful business man with a splendid reputation in commercial circles, is well established in business and enjoys the full confidence of his business associates.  Added to this he has won a bride who will lend light, love and joy to his home.  Mrs. Truitt is a most lovable woman.  She was one of Cartersville’s most decided favorites, and is popular with every one.  Her more than two thousand friends in Cartersville give her up with reluctance.  She carries with her the love and esteem of our whole people.  She is the happy possessor of those noble qualities so lovable in, and so characteristic of, the truest type of our southern women.  Beautiful, brilliant and cultivated, she will be missed from the society of our little city where she has been a reigning belle.  Added to these splendid accomplishments, she possessed a sweetness of disposition and true religious piety, without which every life is a fraud and a failure.  We wish Mr. Truitt and his fair young bride their full share of this world’s happiness, its successes and its pleasures; and may its trials and disappointments be sweetened by “pure, unselfish love.”
