Wofford –Parrott.  At the Methodist E. Church, in this city, on the evening of the 4th (July) instant, by Rev. James L. Pierce, Ab. P. Wofford, Esq., to Miss Lula Parrott, eldest daughter of Judge J. R. Parrott, all of this place.

Thus has passed from a state of single blessedness into one of conjugal felicity, one of Cartersville’s brightest, most beautiful and accomplished daughters.  We are happy to congratulate our handsome and esteemed young friend, Ab., on his good fortune in leading to the altar, one so lovely and well qualified to make him an affectionate and doting wife.  May their days upon earth be long and happily spent in each others embrace—may no dark cloud of adversity ever frown upon their pathway through life—May they enjoy together here a life of undisturbed quiet and peace, and in eternity one of unalloyed bliss.

Attendants. – T. W. Milner, Esq., and Miss Mary Lou Young; R. W. Murphey, Esq., and Miss Ella Erwin; W. C. Scott, Esq., of Rome, Ga., and Miss Lula Trammell; Dr.  T. H. Baker and Miss Willie Davis; Mr. John Cobb and Miss Fannie Cunyus; Mr. Wm. H. Howard and Miss Mary Parrott; Mr. E. Doug Puckett and Miss Amelia Starr, of Gordon county.

The ceremony was performed in the presence of a large and appreciative audience, after which in company with their guests, the happy twain retired to the residence of the Bride’s father, where they received the congratulations of friends, and all engaged in discussing the merits of a table lavishly spread with the bounties of nature.
