Porter Stocks and Miss Mamie Rice.  Mr. Jones was assisted in the ceremony by Rev. Dr. Barnett, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, where the marriage took place.


A Happy Marriage.
Mr. Porter Stocks and Miss Mamie Rice United in Marriage in Atlanta.

Mr. Porter Stocks was married to Miss Mamie Rice last night at the First Presbyterian Church in Atlanta.  The ceremony was performed by Rev. Sam P. Jones, the uncle of the groom, assisted by Rev. Dr. Barnett, pastor of the Church.  The ceremony occurred after the regular prayer meeting at the church, in the presence of a large number of invited friends.
After the ceremony an entertainment was given the happy pair and a number of their friends by the parents of the groom, No. 90 Ivy street, where joyousness and merriment reigned supreme.
The groom is the son of Capt. John T. Stocks, of Atlanta, and is well and favorably known here, where he has many relatives, his mother being a sister of Rev, Sam Jones.  Mr. Stocks is a young man of splendid mental and moral character, of fine business qualifications and a thorough gentleman in every respect, while the bride he was fortunate enough to win is a young lady of great beauty and refinement, possessing many decided charms of mind and heart.
