A Secret Marriage

Marriage of Claude Stover and Miss Hadden made public.

A special to the Constitution from Stone Mountain dated 20 th instant, contains interesting information for the friends of the groom in this city:

“A marriage that smacks somewhat of romance came to light here yesterday afternoon. On Friday the 20 th of May, Mr. Claude Stover of Cartersville, and Miss Sallie Hadden, of this place, were secretly married in an oak grove just in the rear of Dr. Semmey’s residence by Rev. E. L. Wood. Aside from the minister and his son, Mr. Jim Wood, there were no witnesses to the ceremony. Immediately after the marriage Miss Hadden went to the home of her mother and Mr. Stover went back to his business as if nothing had happened. In two or three days after the groom was called to Cedartown where he has since been and so far does not know of the publicity given to his secret marriage. Mr. Stover is the son of Mr. J. A. Stover, a prominent merchant of Cartersville. The bride is the adopted daughter of the late J. T. Willingham. Today the bride has been receiving the congratulations of her many friends.
