MOORE - RAY
Phelps, N. Y. - Ernest Moore, son of Harry G. Moore of this
place, and Miss Helen Ray, daughter of Mrs. Elizabeth Ray of
Geneva, were the principals in a secret marriage that took place more
than a year ago. The announcement was made yesterday by young Moore who
said that the ceremony was performed at the rectory of the Baptist
church at Waterloo, March 18, 1907. The pastor, Rev. Mr. Ellis, the
young man said, officiated. According to the groom's statement, he and
his bride returned to their respective homes immediately after the knot
had been tied and took up their usual routine of work as though nothing
out of the ordinary had transpired. Young Moore continued to make his
usual semi-weekly calls on his bride at her mother's home in Geneva and
neither of them gave out the slightest hint that a marriage between
them had taken place. Rumors of the couple's marriage began a few days
ago and yesterday the young man confirmed the entire story. He stated
that there was no reason for keeping the affair a secret for so long a
time, otherwise than it being a whim to which both himself and wife
were agreeable. Mr. and Mrs. Moore will begin housekeeping in Phelps
within the next three or four months.
