Jolly – M’Gowan
Interesting Wedding at Euharlee on 15th of October.

A pretty wedding was that which occurred at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. R. F. Jolly, on the afternoon of October 15, 1908, when their daughter, Miss Nanny, was united in marriage to Dr. Hugh McGowan, of Euharlee.

Rev. W. R. Mackay, of Kingston, was the officiating minister, and Miss Ina Van Metre, a cousin of the bride rendered the wedding march.

Four sisters of the bride, Misses Kitty, Eva, Etta, and Mrs. H. P. Bichard, of Birmingham, Ala., all attractively attired and each carrying a bouquet preceded the bridal couple in the march and added much to the beauty of the ceremony.

The bride and groom then entered and were met by the minister who pronounced the words that made them husband and wife.

After having received the hearty congratulations of those present the newly wedded pair left for the home of the groom’s father, Dr. W. D. McGowan, at Euharlee, where a sumptuous wedding supper had been prepared for them.

In the marriage of Miss Nanny Jolly, her home community loses one of its most charming young ladies.  Being as she was, naturally gentle, generous and kind, she was loved and admired by all who know her.

Dr. McGowan is a successful young physician, with a widening practice, and by reason of his gentlemanly bearing and upright character has succeeded in winning the esteem of all who know him.
