CAMPBELL - BARKER.
The Cleveland Leader of recent date con-
tained the following wedding notice. Since
the bride formerly lived in this town and
the groom is an old Eldon boy the particu-
lars of their marriage will be of interest to
many of our readers. The Leader's notice
is as follows: "One of the prettiest autumn
weddings took place on Sept. 27th at the
residence of Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Barker, 18
Linwood-st. Cleveland, Ohio, when their
niece Miss Welhelmina Barker was united
in marriage to Mr. W. C. Campbell of
Cleveland. The marriage ceremony was
performed in the drawing room, which
was profusely decorated with palms, ferns
and cut flowers. Dr. Louis Albert Banks
of the First Methodist Episcopal church
officiated, assisted by Dr. T. H. McMichael
of the First Presbyterian church. The
bride entered the drawing room at 6 o'clock
sharp, on the arm of her uncle, to the
strains of Mendelsohns' wedding march,
and looked charming in a gown of white
taffeta silk. She was there found by the
groom and his best man, the Rev. F. W.
Davis of Collingwood, Ohio. The bride
was attended by her half-sister, Miss Louise
Bain of Lindsay, Ont. The marriage was
strictly private and was witnessed by the
following guests: Mr. and Mr. Jas. Barker,
Rev. Dr. and Mrs. McMichael, Rev. L.A.
Banks, Mrs. Fred Taylor, Mr. John E.
Ashman, Mr. Harry Nicholson, Miss Jennie
Barker. A wedding supper was served
immediately after the ceremony for the
bridal party, and was followed by a recep-
tion from 8 to 11, about 50 guests respond-
ing. The young couple left the same even-
ing for their home at 684 Hough Ave.,
which was all in readiness, and will be at
home to friends after Nov. 1st."
