Marriage: PARKER, Wm. and Miss W.R. WEBB (1900)

A Beautiful Marriage

The marriage of Wm. PARKER to Miss W.R. WEBB April 25th was a notable event among our colored citizens.  Rev. S.P. KNIGHT, pastor of the New Chapel Baptist Church, united the contracting parties.  Quite a large attendance of our white citizens lent their presence, showing thereby the high appreciation in which the bride was held.   Many and valuable were the presents given by members of both races.
