Milton and Charlotte (Lottie)
50th Wedding Anniversary

Wedding Notice (5 Dec., 1900):  A very pretty wedding took place at the home of Mr. Wm. McLaughlin on Wednesday evening of     last week, it being the marriage of their eldest daughter Miss Lottie to Mr. Milton Werry. The ceremony was ably performed by our pastor, Rev. J. McMullen, in the presence of nearly one hundred friends. Miss E. Werry acted as bridesmaid, while Mr. Albert McLaughlin supported the groom. After the wedding supper Mr. and Mrs. Werry left on the evening train for Toronto amid showers of old boots and rice, to spend their honeymoon. We all join in wishing Mr. and Mrs. Werry a long, happy and prosperous wedded life. The bride was the recipient of some very costly presents.
( Mr. Wm McLaughlin = William McLaughlin, father of Charlotte.)
