Davidson, William Ward & Miss Clara Margretta Eyland, 14 Jul 1910
Akron Register newspaper, dated July 14, 1910

At the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. C. Eyland, Akron,
Iowa, Thursday morning, July 14, 1910, at 8 o'clock, occurred the
marriage of their daughter, Clara Margretta, to William Ward Davidson,
the ceremony being performed by the Rev. Dr. Killgore, of the First
Baptist church. Miss Helen Robinson presided at the piano, giving
Mendelssohn's wedding march as the bridal party entered, and playing "O
Promise Me" softly during the ceremony. The bride, entered on the arm
of her father, was daintily gowned in white batiste, wore a tulle veil,
held in place by a wreath of similax and carried a bouquet of pink
roses. She was met by the groom, who had entered the parlor with the
minister. Miss Madeline Eyland, sister of the bride, acted as
maid-of-honor. She wore pale blue and carried pink and white sweet

After a delicious wedding breakfast, the bride and groom left for a
short trip, after which they will be at home in Madison, Wisconsin,
where Mr. Davidson is engaged in the book and stationery business.

The out of town guests were Mrs. H. P. (should be R. P.) Davidson, of Lafayette, Indiana,
mother of the groom; Mrs. John C. French, aunt of the bride and Miss
Isabelle French and Mr. Herbert French, of Omaha; Miss Helen K. Eyland
and Miss Helen Robinson, of Sioux City; and Miss Evelyn Little, of
Clinton, Iowa.

The bride is one of Akron's most charming and talented young women. She
attended the Akron schools several years and later completed a course at
the University of Wisconsin. Here the acquaintanceship was formed
between the young people who today became husband and wife. 

NOTE: From family member today, the reference to the groom's mother should be Mrs. Robert Parks Davidson (thus the initials should be R. P., not H. P.)
