Early Fall Nuptial of Jackson Couple

Wedding Articles.
Verland BLAKEY and Agnes ROE (22 Aug 1927).

Miss Agnes Roe and Mr. Verland Blakey Were Married Monday, August 22nd, at M. E. Parsonage

One of the pretty autumn weddings marked by simplicity took place at the Methodist parsonage in this city on last Monday morning at eleven o'clock Rev. C. L. Hocking performing the services, when Miss Agnes Roe was united in marriage to Mr. Verland Blakey. The young people were attended by Miss Bertha Paulson and Mr. Orville Blakey, the young man being a brother of the groom.

The bride wore a pretty traveling suit of blue. Her bridesmaid was also gowned in a charming suit of blue.

After the wedding ceremony at the parsonage the four young people went to the farm home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Roe of Des Moines Township where a wedding dinner was served to them, only the parents of both contracting parties being present and Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Graves, Mrs. Graves being a sister of the bride.

Immediately after the wedding dinner, the young couple left on a motor trip to the northern part of the state and in South Dakota, to be gone for several weeks. On their return they will make their home on the Blakey farm in Middletown township where they will be only about two miles from the farm home of Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Graves.

The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. George Blakey, and is a young man with a good reputation for integrity and industriousness. He has many friends who are congratulating him on this happy event in his life. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Roe of Des Moines township. She is a graduate of the class of 1927 of the Jackson high school. She is a young lady who is accomplished in household duties as well as fitting herself educationally, and will preside over her new home most graciously.

The editors of this paper have known this young lady for some years and wish her all the happiness that this life holds. We congratulate the young man. May blessings numerous preside over this new home.
