Cupid Scores Three Times in Succession (1910)

Columbia City Commercial Mail, Friday June 17, 1910

Cupid, who really is the advance agent of his superior, Hymen, scored three times Saturday and Sunday and as a result there are three happy couples united and three new homes established since Saturday.

LUMM-LEMON. Miss Katie A. Lumm, the charming daughter of Mrs. Ida Lumm, and Mr. Thomas E. Lemmon were united in marriage Saturday evening at 8 o’clock by Rev. J. F. Porterfield at the Baptist parsonage. The couple were attended by Mrs. W. E. Magley and Miss Carmon Lemmon sister of the bridegroom. The bride has for sometime been a photographer in the Magley studio and will continue to assist Mr. Magley until after the rush work. The groom is a son of Lafayette Lemmon and wife and is employed by his father. For the present the young people will reside with the groom’s parents in Madison street.

GRACE-LONDT. Sunday afternoon at two in the presence of about thirty-five friends at the home of the bride’s parents John Grace and wife, in Jefferson township, Rev. L. L. Shaffer united in wedlock Miss Rada L. Grace and John Henry Londt, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Londt of Union township. The couple were attended by Miss Maggie Londt, sister of the groom and Mr. Claud Bradshaw, and the home was a bower of flowers. A sumptuous wedding dinner was served and the young people went to housekeeping at once at the groom’s home in Union township.

MALONE-ARCHER. Mr. Everett W. Archer and Miss Rosetta Malone were united in marriage Sunday noon at the home of the groom’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Josiah Archer, northeast of the city, Dr. F. G. Browne officiating. Only immediate relatives and friends were present. After the wedding an elegant dinner was served.
