Bradly – Johnson.
Miss Lilly Johnson Married to Mr. W. A. Bradly of Charleston, S. C.

On last Wednesday morning, the 6th inst., at the Methodist Church, Miss Lilly Johnson was united in marriage to Mr. W. A. Bradly, of Charleston, S. C. Rev. W. A. Dodge officiating.

The bride is the eldest daughter of the late Col. Abda Johnson, and is a young lady of a very superior type with a strong native intelligence, highly cultured and possessing to a high degree those elements of mind and heart that go to make a noble and lovable woman.  She was a great favorite in Cartersville.  The groom is a cultivated gentleman, of high standing and character.  He has for a long time been connected with the South Carolina Railroad.

The church was beautifully decorated, in and around the chancel were flowers in great profusion and variety, in the rear were many ferns and tropical plants.

At the hour set apart for the ceremony, the church was crowded with the friends of the contracting parties.

Messrs. W. H. Howard and Albert Johnson, a brother of the bride, were the only attendants.  The ushers were Messrs. J. Hugh Young, James M. Fields, Ben Akerman and Douglas Wikle.

At 11:30 o’clock the bride and groom preceded by the ushers and followed by the attendants marched up the aisle by sweet strains of Mendelsohn’s wedding march, played by Mrs. Milner.

Mr. and Mrs. Bradly left on the 12:30 train for Charleston their future home.

A host of the friends of the bride repaired to the depot, after the ceremony to offer their congratulations and to extend to the happy couple their many good wishes.
