Duprey-Willis Wedding - 1922

From the pages of The Adirondack Record-Elizabethtown Post dated Friday, September 22, 1922:

The Record-Post
Friday, Sept. 22, 1922

Thomas Willis, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Willis, sr., [sic] and Miss Mamie Duprey, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Duprey of Swastika, were married at the Church of the Holy Name at 6:15 o’clock Tuesday morning of this week, Rev. Clarence A. Kitts officiating.  They were attended by Miss Grace Dukett of Saranac Lake and James Willis, brother of the groom.  The bride was attractively gowned in a blue suit with hat to match and carried a boquet [sic] of carnations.  Immediately after the ceremony they left for a short honeymoon which will be spent in the northern part of the state, after which they will return to Au Sable Forks.  Both Mr. and Mrs. Willis are extremely popular here and have the best wishes of many friends for a long life of happiness and prosperity.


And here is one of my favorite pictures of the happy couple who married on September 19, 1922:

Of course I had to laugh when I saw that they honeymooned in "the northern part of the state"....they were already in the northern part of the state!!!

Happy Anniversary Aunt Mamie and Uncle Tom!!
