Transcribed by 2006


In this city, on Tuesday, at the home of the bride’s parents, Captain and Mrs. John J. Calhoun, occurred the marriage of their daughter, Miss H. Louise to Mr. H. N. VanDevander.

A pleasant reception was given the evening before the event at Capt. Calhoun’s to the relatives of the contracting parties.

The marriage took place at 9 a. m., Revs. J. E. Jones and J. S. Hillhouse officiating, in the presence only of relatives, after which the couple took the 9:40 train on the W. & A. for a bridal trip of a month or so that will embrace Cincinnati and the exposition, a visit to the groom’s relatives at Williamsburgh, Pa., a visit to relatives of the bride in Washington City and a return home.  They will reside at Priors, where Mr. V. has extensive interests.

The bride is a lady possessed of queenly graces, such as few can boast; modest, amiable, intelligent and pleasant mannered, she has made friends of all she has met.  The groom is a steady, energetic young man, of many noble traits of character, and is worthy of her whose hand he has won.  The Courant American hopes for them in their life journey all joy and prosperity.
