Carter, Rebecca (8 Oct 1913)
Married at the Methodist E. Church, Ozark, Ark., by the former pastor of that church, Rev. George McGlumphy, Miss Rebecca Carter, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Benham Carter, and Mr. Frederick William Dangers of Neillsville, Wis. The bride was given away by her brother, Claude B. Carter of Fort Smith. A younger brother, James Benham Carter, acting as best man. The ceremony was performed at 8:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 8, 1913.
Miss Carter is a native Arkansan and reared in the shadow of the majestic Ozarks, is a typical Southern girl. Added to her unusual personal charms and accomplishments, she possesses in a marked degree the fine characteristics of both the Lees and the Carters, her legitimate inheritance. She has been prominent in Sunday School and church work from her childhood and will be greatly missed from church and social circles.
The bride was beautifully gowned in a dress of white charmeuse, draped in duchess lace, her only ornament being a diamond studded necklace, a gift of the groom. The filmy veil only enhanced the beauty of her elegant costume. She carried a bouquet of roses and lilies of the valley.
The groom is a member of an excellent family and a young man of sterling worth.
The music was in charge of Miss Benson, an appropriate solo being sung by Miss Sarah Hunt, cousin of the bride. Muss Sarah Hunt of Tulsa, Okla., sang sweetly, "I Love You."
The "Blue Birds," a local society composed of young lady friends of the bride, and of which she was a member, entered the seats reserved for them.
The bride, leaning on the arm of her brother, Mr. Claude Carter, entered the east door and moved down the aisle in front of the chancel where the minister stood, and the groom, accompanied by the bride’s younger brother, Mr. Benjamin Carter, entered the west door and advanced down the aisle in front of the chancel, and the minister, when he pronounced the sublime marriage ceremony that made them man and wife, the choir, hidden, sang "The Lord’s Prayer" charmingly, followed by the prayer in the ceremony, after which the concluding words were said, the groom lifted the veil that partly concealed the beautiful face of his bride and they made their exit at the west door followed by Messrs. Carter and relatives and guests. It was a beautiful nuptial affair.
The rear of the chancel was a bower of ferns and sultans, making a lovely picture. The windows were ornamented with rare pot plants.
Mr. and Mrs. Dangers will leave Ozark for their home in Neillsville on Thursday afternoon, followed by blessings and good wishes of kindred and friends. - Ozark Paper
