There was a quiet and simple wedding at the Presbyterian parsonage Thursday morning at eleven o'clock when Miss. Emma Wright of Boyne City and Mr. C.C. Hammond from near Manistee were united in marriage. The bride has been for some years a resident of this community, her father coming here as one of the early homesteaders and settling near Boyne Falls. She will move to her new home near Manistee the last of this week where she will live on her husband's farm. Her mother and cousin will make their home with her.
