Marriage: BLOUNT, H.A. and Sallie LAYTON (1889)

MARRIED — At the residence of the bride’s sister, Mrs. Annie WALKER, on Third street, Wednesday evening at 8 o’clock, Mr. H.A. BLOUNT, one of Plymouth’s most popular young men, to Miss Sallie LAYTON, formerly of Bridgeville, Del. but who, for the past year, has added much to the social circle of Plymouth by her charming presence.

The marriage was very quiet; only a few of the relaties and friends of the contracting parties being present.

The ceremony was performed by Rev. C.W. ROBINSON, of the M.E. Church, in a most solemn manner.

We extend to the two happy lives that are thus made one, our congratulations and best wishes for a long, happy and prosperous journey through life.
