Uncle George’s Marriage.

On last Wednesday afternoon, 9th inst., at the residence of Mr. Spartan Gilreath, near Cassville, Rev. George H. Gilreath and Mrs. America Loveless were united in marriage, Justice J. P. Hawks performing the ceremony. “Uncle George,” as he is familiarly called, has always been known to exercise good judgment in all matters, and when he decided to change from the state of a widower his characteristic judgment never failed him. Mrs. Loveless is a lady of many good qualities, and by a long residence in the county has made many friends. As we have intimated, Uncle George was fortunate in securing such an excellent woman for a wife.

Everybody knows Uncle George. He has lived in Bartow county nearly sixty years and is one of our very oldest citizens. During these many years he has always been held in high esteem by all. His benevolent nature and high Christian character have endeared him to every man, woman and child who know him.

He has reared a large family and imparted to them many of his good traits. The frosts of eighty-two winters have whitened his locks, but he is yet healthy and vigorous, and we trust that a kind Providence will spare him and his good lady to live among us many years to come.

May this couple who have linked their lives together have a pleasant journey through the remainder of their days.
