Marriage Notices & Anniversaries (various Newspapers)

Matrimonial. On Thursday evening Mr. Charles E. Cole, one of our young merchants, and Miss Kate King, one of Fredericksburg's fairest daughters, were united in the holy bonds of matrimony, at the Baptist church, by Rev. Dr. Thomas S. Dunaway. A large number of friends were present, and at the conclusion fo the ceremony the bridal party left the church for the depot, where they took the northern bound train. We wish them all the happiness imaginable. [Virginia Star - 28 Feb 1880, pg. 3]

GOLDEN WEDDING CELEBRATION.  It was the pleasing privilege of a representative of the STAR to be one of many present at the hospitable residence of Mr. and Mrs. Counsellor Cole, last Monday night, to enjoy the celebration of the golden wedding of this aged and highly esteemed couple.  The double parlors were thrown open, where Mr. and Mrs. Cole received the hearty congratulations of a large company of relatives and friends, after which all were invited into the dining room, where a table was spread and beautifully ornamented with pyramids of foreign and domestic fruits, cakes, confections and flowers.  After a blessing had been asked by Rev. Dr. T. S. Dunaway, rich and elegant solids, jellies, cakes, wine and confections were served, and most heartily enjoyed.  It was, indeed, a feast worthy of the most hospitable of earth.  On the walls in large gilt figures were 1837-1887.  After supper the company returned to the parlors, where several hours were delightfully spent in pleasing and engaging converse.

The presents were numerous, among which we note:  A beautiful black lace purse, gilt beads, and solid gold bands, containing one hundred dollars in ten dollar gold pieces; several packages of gold coin, aggregating seventy dollars; a beautiful gold-headed ebony cane, with the name and date of Mr. Cole’s marriage beautifully inscribed on the head; a very pretty sold gold thimble; a pair of beautiful gold-plated vases, attractively carved; a beautiful variegated cut glass wine set, with gilt tray; a handsome set of china; a very pretty gilt umbrella stand; an exquisite china plaque, supported by an artistic gilt frame; a pair gold sleeve buttons.

Among the guests present we noticed Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Hocke, Miss Mary C. McGill, and Mr. Benj. Cole, of Washington; Miss Stoneham, of Lancaster county, Miss Gertrude Leary, of Prince William; Rev. Dr. Thos. S. Dunaway and wife, Dr. Brodie Herndon, wife and daughter, Dr. A. C. Doggett and wife, Mrs. Wm. I. King and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Marion Willis, Mrs. Washington Elms, Mrs. Flora Swift, Mr. Chas. Bragdon and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. E. D. Cole and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Bud Cole, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. E. Cole and Mrs. Geo. E. Cole, Mr. and Mrs. Clinton Cole, Mrs. Tansill and daughters, Mrs. Scaggs and daughters, Miss Addie Beckwith, Miss Anne Southard, Rev. J. K. Mason, Judge Jas. B. Sener, B. J. Marshall, Sam’l E. Eastburn, John Gordon and W. S. Honey.

The “bride” was richly dressed in black silk, point lace, diamonds; the “groom” wore the conventional black, and both seemed to be just as happy as they were fifty years ago, when Rev. Alexander H. Bennett, of Prince William county, Va., had been sent for thirty miles away, and joined them in the holy bonds of wedlock in this place.

The occasion was one that will be remembered with very great pleasure by all present.  From this happy matrimonial union have sprung eight children and twenty-one grand-children, only four of the former are now living and sixteen of the latter.  We wish the aged couple many, many more years of pleasure on earth, and when separated by death, may they be again united in the blissful world beyond.  [Fredericksburg Star, 9 Nov 1887, pg 3, col. 3]

Mr. John Cole, their son, came down from the University of Virginia to be present. They were the recipients of many handsome presents. only the members of the family were present at the elegant dinner served for the occasion. [Fredericksburg Daily Star - 27 Feb 1905, pg. 3]

Mr. Carlton Lloyd Cole and Miss Ida Smith Jennings, both of this city, were married at the home of Mrs. M. L. Burke, sister of the bride, in Baltimore Wednesday evening.  After a bridal trip the happy couple will return to this city, where they will make their home. [Daily Star (Fredericksburg), 20 Jun 1912]
