Wedding Wednesday - Weaver & Compton

From Arkansas Gazette, Little Rock, Arkansas, marriage, 28 October 1868.


On the 24th inst., by Rev. R. S. Hunter, Mr. George V. Weaver and Miss Alice L. Compton, all of this city.

The above incident came off very quietly, and the parties stole away on one of those exquisite hymeneal tours with so little ostentation that we must believe the process of making "two hearts beat as one," is, in this instance at least a happy transformation.  Our friend Weaver, the "George" of schoolboy days, is the scion of a good old stock, and well represents the virtues and excellencies of a respected ancestry.  The partner of his choice does eminent credit to his good taste and judgment.  Long may they live and happy may they be, with no other cares to mar the serenity of contentment save those incident to the state.

[Blogger's note: George Weaver was my 2nd cousin 3 times removed. We both descend from Dr. Jabez Percival.]
