A Brilliant Wedding - St. Peter's Church was filled with a gay and happy throng on Wednesday evening.  The occasion was the nuptials of Mr. A. B. Ideson (of the firm of Halsey & Ideson) and Miss Sophie E. Roehrig, second daughter of Mrs. R. Knight, Sr., by a former husband, the late Henry Roehrig.  The wedding party entered the Church at half past 6 o'clock, consisting of the bride conducted by a brother-in-law; the bridegroom conducting the bride's mother; and eight bridesmaids - no groomsmen - which is according to the latest decree of fashion on such occasions.  With their varied and splendid toilettes added to natural personal charms, this party constituted the most brilliant and attractive one that ever stood before the altar at St. Peter's.

The bride, the central figure of course in the grand cortege, who is a dark blonde of slender form, was robed in white silk trimmed with tulle, and veil of the latter material.  The bridesmaids were composed about equally of blondes and brunettes, forming a pleasing contrast.

Miss Freddie Roehrig, sister of the bride, wore a white tarletan dress with silk waist.  Miss Ida, another and younger sister, just in her teens, wore also a white tarletan, made short.  Miss Louise Adams of Rochester appeared in a rich corn-colored silk with black velvet trimmings.  Miss Mary Adams, (a sister,) in white tarletan skirt, light blue waist, black velvet Marguerites.  Miss Libbie Nessel of Rochester, in light blue tarletan skirt and waist, trimmed with ostrich feathers and lilies of the valley.  Miss Anna Fairchild of Waterloo, blue tarletan with pink roses.  Miss Nellie Fairchild (a sister,) in light green tarletan with half-blown roses. Miss Kittie Hemiup, (an accomplished teacher at our Union School,) in white tarletan skirt, white silk waist, adorned with pink roses.  All the dresses were made with long trains.

We feel assured that every heart beat in unison with the full and joyous tones of the organ that ushered in the betrothed and sent them forth "twain of one flesh."  The Church ceremony was pronounced in the usually distinct, solemn and impressive manner for which Rev. Dr. Rankine is noted.  Our young townsmen, Chas. E. Young, Wm. G. Dove, Fred Southworth, John Ramsey and Wm. L. Young, efficiently officiated as Masters of Ceremonies, by whom all invited guests and other spectators were provided for without confusion or other discomfort.  

From 7 till 11 p.m. the wedded pair held a reception at the commodious residence of Mr. and Mrs. Halsey on Genesee street. Sincere and earnest were the congratulations extended to them by the large throng assembled.  The entertainment provided was prodigally rich in variety and quality of cake.  Dancing followed the generous repast, in which three quadrille sets at a time found opportunity to thread the mazy figures.  Mead's quadrille band furnished the music to Mr. J. C. Parker's distinct and intelligible calling.

A side table displayed an elegant array of wedding presents in silver, bronze and Parian ware - substantial and enduring mementoes from friends present and absent.  The following is a complete list of the presents with the names of the several donors:
Silver tea set, 7 pieces, from bridegroom's cousin, New York
Silver ice pitcher, from Mr. and Mrs. A. A. Halsey
Silver cake basket, jointly from G. C. Ramsey, Geo. Schell and A. Levy
Silver card receiver, H. Roehrig
Silver castor, Mrs. Thomas Baxter
Parian toilet set in silver holder, Wm. G. Dove and Chas. E. Young
Pair silver goblets, W. L. Young

Silver fruit knives, Miss Nessel of Rochester
Silver call-bell, Mr. E. Munson

Wax cross enclosed in glass case, Miss Lizzie Fowle
Oil painting, Miss Rose Baxter
Oil painting, Mr. and Mrs. Brickwedde
Book of prose and poetry, Miss Minnie Spendlove
Fancy chair, Mr. and Mrs. Stallknight
Mr. and Mrs. Halsey most admirably performed the duties of host and hostess, flitting here, there and everywhere to see that were provided for and enjoying themselves.  Mr. and Mrs. Ideson forego the customary bridal trip, settling at once very sensibly into home life and to the stern duties which devolve particularly upon a business man.  They are to make their home for the time being with Mr. and Mrs. Halsey.

From Geneva Gazette 17 September 1875


Married at the residence of the bride's parents on the evening of the 15th inst., Frank Wright and Emma Gates, all of Seneca. This was a country wedding or a wedding in the country, and were we but well acquainted with the parties to the contract, it would perhaps not have been out of place to speak of the happy event more at length -- of the old time custom of chasing the bride about the house by the young gentlemen present -- of putting the groom to bed by the young ladies supposed also to be present -- of the slipper game where groans of pain and shouts of mirth commingle not unpleasantly.  But as we are acquainted with every family in Geneva and Seneca except this, our reticence is decidedly excusable.  We hope they'll waltz through life handsomely, and in their declining years, when the Great Harvester shall come to gather in the sheaves fully ripe, may they be found all WRIGHT.

A Runaway Match - A man named Cargill, formerly a preacher of the Free Methodist persuasion -- but now sadly fallen from grace - was married in this village, on the 16th ult., to Miss Ada Wilson.  The parties reside in the town of Hopewell. The old sinner induced the young woman to accompany him to Canandaigua while her mother was away from home, and though the mother was in this place several hours while the couple were here, and while the ceremony was performed, she knew nothing of the transaction until she arrived at her home in Hopewell.  Mr. and Mrs. Cargill set out in the evening for a buggy ride homeward, but unfortunately the horse became frightened on Railroad Avenue, at a passing locomotive.  Cargill was thrown from the vehicle into a mud puddle, and Mrs. C. jumped to the ground, badly spraining her ankle.  She was carried into the house of Mr. Persons nearby, and kindly cared for.  This Carghill does not bear an enviable reputation hereabouts, and the mother is very much grieved at her daughter's course, as is quite natural, as it is the general opinion that she has thrown herself away upon a graceless scamp.  He is some 45 or 50 years of age, while his wife cannot be more than 16 or 17.  It is a great pity there cannot be provided a speedy dissolution of such mes-alliances.
