Marriage: VENTERS, Richard T. and Connie WATERS (1898)
Married — At the home of Mr. A.N. WATERS on Jefferson street, Wednesday evening at 8 o’clock, Mr. Richard T. VENTERS to Miss Connie WATERS.
This marriage was a most quiet one, only a few intimate friends of the contracting parties being present. The ceremony which made them man and wife was performed by Rev. G.L. FINCH, of the Baptist Church, in a most solemn manner.
The bride is an accomplished young woman, loved by all for her noble, christian spirit. The groom has few equals as a man, and during his stay of a few years among our people, he has won an enviable reputation. To these popular young pepole we extend best wishes, hoping that life holds many blessings in store for them.
