presents were many and
valuable, ranging from three to one hundred dollars. This occasion was
one of general festivity with a large measure of good will for the
pair. Mr. Walbridge and wife left for their home in Michigan at half
four, their many friends giving them a shower of old shoes and rice as
a parting benediction. Mrs. Walbridge will be greatly missed Rushville
society, both in church and social relations.

FITZGERALD - O'BRIEN
Chapinville, N. Y. - Thomas FitzGerald was married to Mary Ann
O'Brien on Wednesday of last week at St. Mary's church,
Canandaigua. We extend our congratulations. The boys went down to give
them a little
music Monday evening, and they had just commenced to make a racket when
the bridegroom opened the door and invited them in, each congratulating
him as they passed the door. They were well-treated to apples and
having a good time in general. When about to depart cigars were passed
they returned wishing him a long happy life. Only one missing feature
that the bride was not there until it had all passed.

COLF - BRUNDAGE
The announcement has just been made public of the marriage at Honeoye
Falls, on the 14th inst., of Mr. Charles Colf and Miss
Maude Brundage, both of Hopewell. This matrimonial alliance being
the result of an attachment which met the determined opposition of the
bride's grandparents and guardians, they were not apprised of its
approach, nor of its consummation until the young couple had reached
the residence of a sister of the groom at Lima
after the ceremony. From there the bride wrote of the event and assured
the old folks that she was just too happy for anything, although she
would be glad to see them provided the husband of her choice would be welcomed with her.
