The Burns-Adams Nuptials
The marriage of Miss Margaret R. Adams and Mr. Geo. F. Burns took place at high noon on Wednesday, October 22, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. G.E. Adams, of Holly Springs, Iowa.
The guests, about seventy-five in number, consisting principally of the immediate relatives of the contracting parties, were assembled in the beautiful decorated parlor to witness the ceremony. Promptly at 12 o’clock the candidates for the solemn vows to be taken entered the parlor to the measured strains of Mendelssohn’s wedding march.
Mrs. F.B. Burns at the piano, and took their places before the officiating clergyman, Rev. Geo. C. Frost, of Clear Lake, Iowa, who pronounced the words that made them man and wife.
They were the recipients of many useful and valuable presents.
The bride was becomingly attired in white silk crepe-chien and the groom was dressed in convential black.
A short social period followed the ceremony when congratulations were extended to the happy couple, after which the guests repaired to the dinningroom where a sumptuous three course dinner was served.
The young people have the best wishes of a large number of admiring friends, both having been reared in this community; and the affection which has ripened into love was first formed during their school day associations.
The groom, a prosperous young farmer, is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Lemuel Burns, well known pioneer settlers of Willow Township. He has just completed a nice new house, located on a farm of his own, which has been earned by his own exertions.
The bride, an accomplished young lady, possessing many excellent traits of character, is the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G.E. Adams, highly respected pioneer residents of West Fork Township.
Mr. and Mrs. Burns, after a short visit with friends in Sioux City will go to housekeeping in the new home on their farm near Holly Springs.
