Shared by Grandson Jim Utley

A happy event of interest occurred near Johns Station last Wednesday afternoon, March 17, 1909, at the 
home of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Jernigan, when their charming daughter, Miss Katie, became the bride of Mr. 
Kenneth Watson, of Hamlet.

Only a few relatives and friends of the contracting parties witnessed the happy event.
The parlor was tastefully decorated with ivy for the occasion.   The Wedding March was sweetly rendered 
by Mrs. J. H. Dixon, and at the first soft tones the bride entered, leaning on the arm of the groom, 
dressed in bewitching white messaline, carrying a beautiful bouquet of lilles of the valley and ferns. 
Rev. J. H. Dixon, in his impressive manner, spoke the solemn words that made them man and wife.
After the soleum vows had been taken, and congratulations of relatives and friends had been received, 
Mr. and Mrs. Watson boarded the 7 o'clock train at John's, amid showers of rice, for Jacksonville, St. 
Agustine and other Southern pointe.

Besides best wishes, they received several beautiful and useful presents.  They will make their home in 
Hamlet, N. C., were the groom is employed as conductor on the Seaboard line from Hamlet to Wilmington.
Their many friends wish them much happiness all through life.
