Pretty Home Wedding
A very pretty home wedding occurred last Wednesday evening, February 21,
when Miss Martha Zartman and Ward Bruce Hathaway were united in marriage
at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. J.E. Zartman. Rev.
J.J. Simpson performed the ceremony in the presence of about twenty-five
relatives and friends. The wedding march, "Lohengrin's Bridal Chorus,"
was played by Miss Orra Zartman, sister of the bride. The house was
beautifully decorated with cut flowers, which were distributed among the
guests after the serving of the refreshments.
The newly married couple are among our most highly respected young
people and they have the well wishes of a large circle of friends for a
long and happy wedded life. The young people left immediately after the
ceremony for a wedding trip to Indianapolis and St. Louis, where they
will visit relatives. On returning home they will take up their
residence on the Hathaway farm east of Lowell.

A.D. Smith and Mrs. Martha Hathaway were united in marriage at Crown Point last Saturday; the Rev. Jones, pastor of the M.E. church, performed the ceremony. Immediately after the ceremony the newly married couple went to Dunes Park, returning to Lowell Sunday evening. The bride is the eldest daughter of J.E. Zartman and one of our most highly esteemed ladies. The groom has been a resident of Lowell for several years and during his residence here has made [a] host of friends. We join the large circle of friends of the bride and groom in extending congratulations and best wishes for their future happiness.
