From the Lexington Leader, May 14, 1902:
Mr. R. E. Smith and Miss Patye Chesterfield Keene were quietly married today at 12 o'clock at the home of Rev. J. W. McGarvey, the officiating minister. The bride is a very handsome and lovable lady of the county and the groom is the son of Charles E. Smith, of North Broadway, the well known Eastern Kentucky timber dealer. The wedding was a very quiet one and a surprise to the friends of the young couple. They left for New York and other Eastern cities after a wedding luncheon at the Phoenix Hotel. They will be at home in about two weeks.
[Patty Keene was the great-granddaughter of Mary Bowman Keen. Mary was the daughter of my great-great-great-great grandparents, Abraham Bowman & Sarah Henry.]
