Blaisdell, Ada (8 NOV 1904)

The home of W. Blaisdell and wife was the scene of a pretty wedding last Tuesday morning, when their daughter Ada became the wife of Frank Merton Graves of Long Beach, California. Rev. Conklin performed the ceremony in the presence of a few relatives.

The bride was tastefully attired in white organdy and carried white roses. Just before 9 o’clock Mrs. W. B. Parks began the wedding march and the bridal couple appeared and were soon made one.

After congratulations the wedding breakfast was sever and then it was time for the bride and groom to start for the depot. They left on the eleven o’clock train expecting to reach Long Beach Sunday, where a neat little bungalow awaits them. A large number of friends with a bountiful supply of rice gathered at the depot to bid them farewell.

The young people have lived here since early childhood, and they count their friends by scores.

The groom was employed here in this father’s store for several years, and only went to California, his parent’s home, a year ago. The bride was also a clerk in Graves & Sons Store for several years, and by her bright, cheery ways and lovable disposition she has endeared herself to all who know her. While the good wishes of all their friends follow them to their western home, we all regret that they could nnot have made their home in Spencer.
