Wins A Fair Texan.
The Happy Marriage of Professor Nelson Gilreath on the 2nd ult.

Athens, Tex., March 25, ‘92
Editors Courant American:

Prof. Nelson Gilreath, Rev. Joe Jones’ co-laborer, succeeded in winning the heart and hand of Miss Leah Faulk, daughter of Judge W. L. Faulk, of Athens, and on the evening of the 23rd inst. they were united in marriage in the city of Dallas.

Mr. Gilreath is an affable, companionable, Christian gentleman, and a musician of high attainments. Miss Faulk is one of Athens’ most refined and best educated Christian girls, her attainments, both in music and literature, being of high order.

When such hands and hearts have been united we can but expect a happy home and a pleasant voyage over the ocean of life. That it may be so is the prayer of a mutual friend.—A. J. French, Pastor Cumberland Presbyterian Church.

The following is from the Dallas (Tex.) News: “Nelson Gilreath, of Cartersville, Ga., and Miss Leah Faulk were married at 8 o’clock, p. m., March 23rd, by Rev. C. O. Jones, pastor of the First Methodist church, at his residence. Miss Faulk is the daughter of W. L. Faulk, of Athens, Tex., and Mr. Gilreath is a co-laborer with Evangelist Joe Jones.”
