Henderson County  Marriage



The Reporter, Henderson, Kentucky

January 31, 1884

We do not know that we so much regret the accidental delay of this issue, since we are thereby enable to give even a brief account of the YOUNG-SOAPER nuptials which were celebrated at St. Paul's Church at half past 8 this morning. We must necessarily be brief however, for we have not had time to collect particulars.

Rev. R. S. BARRETT was the officiating clergyman. Prof. C. F. ARTES, organist and Messrs. James E. RANKIN and R. H. CUNNINGHAM, ushers. The Bridesmaids were Misses Fannie ATKINSON, Sarah PRINGLE, Katie DALLAM, Sallie DIXON, Mary BUNCH, Maria Belle ALVES, Bettie SOAPER and Lizzie DALLAM.

The bride was dressed in an embossed velvet dress of royal purple, and a pansy bonnet. All the lady attendants were appropriately dressed and all wore bonnets.

In a solemn and impressive manner Mr. BARRETT pronounced the words that united H. M. YOUNG and Sadie SOAPER as man and wife, till death do them part.

Immediately at the conclusion of the ceremony the happy couple attended by their friends, took carriages for the residence of the bride's brother, Mr. Thomas SOAPER, whence, after donning traveling costumes, the newly wedded pair proceeded to the Depot where they took the cars for an extended southern and southwestern tour. May happiness attend them on this, and ever on life's journey to its end.
