KENNEDY-HOLLINGSWORTH WEDDING

Dr. Sam Kennedy & Eula Riall Hollingsworth - 1917

 

Sherman-Morgan Marriage

CROCKETT COURIER, October 21, 1909
On Tuesday evening, October 19, at 8 o’clock, at the residence of Dr. T. M. Sherman, occurred the marriage of two of our most popular young people, Miss Shermie, the youngest daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Sherman, and Mr. John D. Morgan.
These two have been “sweethearts true” and the marriage was but the consummation of a perfect union of hearts.
The bride is one of Kennard’s fairest daughters, and the groom a rising young business man of exemplary habits. Both number their friends by the score, who one and all wish for them a life of unalloyed happiness.
