bullet  Marriage Notes:

The following wedding announcement was printed in the Wingham Advance (Huron Co., Ontario), March 1, 1906, p. 8, c. 4.

Langside [Kinloss Twp., Bruce Co., Ontario]. Wedding Bells - A very pleasant event took place at Cedar Grove Farm, the home of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Hetherington, lot 32, con. 3, Kinloss, on Wednesday, Feb. 1st, being the marriage of Miss Maude Passmore of Teeswater, (who formerly resided with Mrs. Hetherington) to Mr. Hugh McBurney, a prosperous young farmer of Underhill, Man. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. S.C. Edmunds of Whitechurch. The groom was assisted by Mr. Archie Passmore of Teeswater, brother of the bride, while Miss May Bell Hetherington, cousiin of the groom, cousin of the groom, acted as bridesmaid, with little May Passmore of Toronto and Ruthie Passmore of Teeswater, both nieces of the bride, as flower girl and ring bearer, respectively. Promptly as six o'clock, to the strains of the wedding march played by Miss Eliza Jarvis, the bridal party took their places beneath a beautiful arch of evergreens, trimmed with white chrysanthemums and tinsel. The bride was given away by her brother, Mr. Alex Passmore of Teeswater. The bride looked charming in a dress of cream crepe-de-chene, trimmed with chiffon and lace and wearing the customary bridal veil caught up with a wreath of orange blossoms. The bridesmaid wore a dress of white organdie trimmed with allover lace and ribbon. The little girls looked cute, little May in cream cashmere and little Ruthie in white silk. The flowers were pink and white roses. When the ceremony was over, Miss Eliza Jarvis rendered a beautiful selection on the organ while congratulations were given, after which all sat down to a most bountiful wedding dinner, served by four young ladies, Miss Tillie Jarvis of Fordyce, Miss Charlotte Grant of Teeswater, Miss Berta Hetherington and Miss Lottie Bell of Langside. The decorations in the dining room were streamers of the national colors and boquets of asters. After the dinner of which nearly fifty partook, the evening was spent in music, games, recitations. Mr. and Mrs. Hetherington made a good host and hostess, and their genial manner added much to the evening's enjoyment. Among the guests from a distance were Mr. and Mrs. R. Ferguson of Walkerton, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Ferguson, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Irwin and little Grace of Belgrave and Mrs. A. McGillivary of Wingham and Mr. Jas. Hetherington of Lebannon, South Dakota. The high esteem in which the bride was held was shown by the many beautiful and useful presents received. The groom's gift to the bride was a gold guard and toilet set, to the bridesmaid a gold brooch, to the groomsman a beautiful scarf pin, and to each of the little girls, a gold bracelet. The happy couple left on the afternoon train, next day. The bride's travelling suit was navy blue ladies' cloth with white silk waist and hat to match. They will visit friends in Toronto and Winnipeg before taking up their residence in the West. 2
