McCoy – Frazer

The marriage of Miss Gladys McCoy and Mr. Will Ed Frazer, which was solemnized at the Presbyterian Church of this city February 12 at 6 o’clock p.m., was charming in its simplicity. Rev. J. V. Logan was officiating clergyman, and many friends of the popular young couple were present. The only attendants were Miss Mary Sampson, cousin of the groom, maid of honor, and Mr. J. Ollie Frazer was his brother’s best man. Mr. Frank Frazer and Mr. James Gray were ushers.

Preceding the ceremony a musical program was rendered, with Mr. J. Warren Cunningham, soloist, accompanied by Mrs. C. P. Davidson. The bride entered on the arm of her uncle, Mr. W. V. Tennant, by whom she was given in marriage, and was met at the altar by the groom.

The church was beautifully decorated in vases of cut flowers, candles, palms and ferns. The bride was lovely in a simple afternoon gown of blue taffeta and georgette crepe, black picture hat and carried bride’s roses. The maid of honor was becomingly attired in dark blue taffeta, and her flowers were pink roses.

Following the ceremony the bridal party and a few friends were entertained at dinner by Judge and Mrs. Sampson and Miss Mary Sampson.

Death of May Shirley

Last Friday night, near Milltown, Miss May Shirley, about sixteen years old, died, a victim of typhoid fever. She was a bright girl, popular with her associates and was fondly loved by her parents, brothers and sisters. A large circle of friends and relatives attended the funeral and burial. She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John B. Shirley, and it is our information that several other members of the family are afflicted with the same disease. The community feels the deepest sympathy of the family that is in such sore distress.

“Gone to Her Reward”

Last Wednesday night, the 16th inst., Mrs. Lucy Coffey, who was the beloved wife of T. J. Coffey, died at her late home in Adair County, one mile from Bridgeport. She was a victim of pneumonia and was sick but a few days. The deceased was a devoted member of the Methodist church and was about seventy-five years old. In her young womanhood she was well acquainted about Columbia and often visited here, being a sister of the late W. T. and T. R. Price, making Mr. W. Titus Price and Mr. R. H. Price her nephews.

She was a lady highly respected for her many Christian virtues, and will be greatly missed, not only by her aged husband and children, but by the entire neighborhood in which she lived.

Hawkins Family Buried In Richmond Cemetery

IMG_3548Nicholas C. Hawkins, born October 25, 1837, died October 25, 1865.  Melissa W. Hawkins, wife of J. Lawrence Jones, born April 4, 1841, died February 22, 1874

An entire family is buried at the foot of this large monument raised to their honor – father, mother, two sons, two daughters, and a son-in-law.

IMG_3551Cary A. Hawkins, born May 11, 1807, died August 27, 1877.  Celia Walker, wife of C. A. Hawkins, born August 24, 1807, died February 5, 1870.

Cary A. Hawkins and Celia Walker were married September 7, 1829, in Madison County, Kentucky.  In the 1850 census they were listed with their four children:  Cary, 43; Celia, 41; Jason, 20; Lucy, 15; Nicholas, 11; and Melissa, 8.  By 1860 the two oldest were married, leaving Cary, 53; Celia, 51; Nicholas, 21; and Melissa 18.

IMG_3550William Jason Hawkins, born July 6, 1830, died July 14, 1878

I could find no information about the marriage of William Jason Hawkins.  It is possible, if he were married, his wife married again after his death at the young age of 48.

IMG_3552Dr. Will Jennings, born June 10, 1827, died July 18, 1892.  Lucy Hawkins, wife of Dr. Will Jennings, born May 5, 1834, died October 15, 1897.

Lucy survived her parents, siblings and husband.  Perhaps it was she – or her children – who raised this stone to their memory.

1792 Marriage – William Cambron and Rebecca Montgomery

Scan_Pic1642

This original marriage record and parental consent from Washington County, Kentucky, has me puzzled.  I can’t find any Montgomery in my database married to a Henrietta before 1792.  Does anyone have an idea who this might be?

Know all men by theses presents, that we, William Cambron and Jonathon Riney, are held and firmly bound unto his Excellency, the Governor of Kentucky, in the sum of fifty pounds current money.  To the payment which well and truly to be made to the said governor and his successors, we bind ourselves, our heirs, jointly and severally, firmly by these presents, sealed with our seals and dated this 5th day of December 1792.  The condition of the above obligation is such that whereas there is a marriage shortly intended between the above bound William Cambron and Rebecca Montgomery, for which a license has issued.  Now if there be no lawful cause to obstruct the said marriage, then this obligation to be void, else to remain in full force.                          William Cambron

Jonathon Riney

Witness, John Reed

Scan_Pic1643November 3, 1792

This is to certify that I am willing for my daughter, Rebecca Montgomery, to be married to William Cambron, with my hand, Henrietta Montgomery.            Henrietta Montgomery

Jonathon Riney, Edward Montgomery
