Happy anniversary to Alfred and Martha (Parrish) Gill.  Their wedding was announced in the September 30, 1898 Skidmore Standard on page 1:

United in Wedlock

Alfred A. Gill and Miss Martha M. Parrish were united in marriage at the residence of Eld. N. Rollo Davis in Maryville, Tuesday, September 27, 1898, Elder Davis officiating.

The affair was a very quiet one.  The two young people drove to Maryville in the morning, were married and returned to the bride’s home at her father’s J. V. Parrish, in this city, in the evening, where they ate the wedding supper.

At an early hour, as is customary on such occasions, they were given the old time-honored charivari by the tin pan brigade.  A little later in the evening they were given a serenade by the Mandolin Club.  By way of showing their appreciation, the newly wedded couple appeared in their wedding costumes and invited the boys into the parlor where they were served with pie and cake, in a most charming manner by the bride.

Mr. Gill took his wife to his farm, 8 miles northeast of here, Wednesday morning, where they will reside in the future.

The STANDARD joins their many friends in wishing them success and happiness.
