WHEELER - HARRIS Wedding Announcement

Prominent Cedartown Gentleman to wed Charming Alabama Lady

General Joseph Wheeler announces the approaching marriage of his daughter, Miss Julia Knox Wheeler, to Mr. William J. Harris, the ceremony to occur in New York July 27th.

The news of this happy event will be pleasing to a large army of friends in many states of both the bride and groom, but nowhere will it be more interesting than in Georgia and at the home of the groom, where so many warm friends will hasten to extend their most cordial and sincere congratulations on the approaching event.

Miss Wheeler has a large circle of friends in Washington and New York, as well as throughout the South, and this gracious representative of Southern womanhood will receive the best of wishes from thousands of homes all over the country.

The groom is a widely known and popular young gentleman and stands high socially and in a business way. As secretary to United States Senator A. S. Clay, he has been a prominent figure for years in Georgia politics, and from a host of personal and political friends in this state will come heartiest assurances of good wishes and congratulations.

The bride will receive a most cordial welcome in Cedartown, her future home, and the happy couple will add much to the social life of the ever gay Cedar City.

The Atlanta Constitution contains the following mention of this interesting event:

The announcement of the approaching marriage of Miss Julia Knox Wheeler, daughter of General Joseph Wheeler, to Mr. William J. Harris, of Cedartown, GA., will be received with more than unusual interest in southern society circles, where both Miss Wheeler and Mr. Harris are prominently known.

The marriage, which will be a very quiet one, will be solemnized July 27 at St. Thomas Church, New York, Rev. Dr. Ernest M. Stiers officiating.

Miss Wheeler, daughter of the famous Confederate General, has through her sweet and gracious personality, attracted a wide circle of friends throughout both the north and south. Her education was completed in New York and Paris, and she is an exceptionally bright and cultivated young woman.

Mr. Harris is the son of Dr. C.H. Harris, of Cedartown, and is one of the most successful insurance men in the state. His family is a prominent one in Georgia, and he has a host of friends in both the business and social world.
This old paper is located at the Polk County Historical Society Cedartown, GA.
