Family Items of Interest
Mr. Albert Skinner of Bevier and Miss Jane Maud Clarkson of Macon, were united
in marriage at the home of the bride's mother, Mrs. Catherine Clarkson, in
that city, on Wednesday, Oct. 23, 1901 at 7:30 o'clock p.m., the groom's
father, Rev. W.R.Skinner of Macon, officiating. The wedding was a quiet one,
only the relatives and immediate friends of the young couple being present.
The groom is a very promising and highly respected young man. He is manager
of the Reichel Furniture Co. store in this city, and enjoys the good will
of the people as well as the confidence of the firm, with which he has been
connected for several years. The bride is a most estimable young lady, and
until recently held a position as bookkeeper in the Gieselman dry goods store
in Macon. They came to Bevier Wednesday night and went direct to housekeeping
in the handsomely furnished residence on Shelby street, which was purchased
some time ago by the groom. Their Bevier friends unite in wishing them abundant
joy and happiness.
