Two of Cartersville’s Young People Are Married At Kingston.

What came as quite a surprise to the relatives of the popular young people was the announcement of the marriage at Kingston on Tuesday evening of Mr. Robert G. Gilreath and Miss Lizzie Belle Cobb.

There has been a strong friendship between these two young people since their school days, and while their friends expected to see this friendship culminate in marriage, it was not anticipated that it would occur just now.

On Tuesday evening Mr. Gilreath and Miss Lizzie Belle started out for a drive, but before leaving he wrote a letter to his father, Mr. G. H. Gilreath, and left it with some one to deliver at four o’clock.

Upon opening the letter Mr. Gilreath noted its contents and immediately telegraphed the young people at Kingston to come home.

Arriving here Robert announced that they were married at the home of Mr. J. D. Rogers, at Kingston, and Rev. Mr. Jamison, pastor of the Methodist church at that place, had performed the ceremony.  They drove to the residence of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Cobb, where the parental blessings were bestowed upon them, and then proceeded to the home of Mr. and Mrs. G. H. Gilreath, who also gave them a cordial welcome to their home, where they will reside for the present.
