Bonner - Bryar
Harry Bonner, Former Xenia Boy, Married
A Hamilton paper gives the following account of a wedding that recently occurred, which will interest many Greene county people: One of the prettiest home weddings of the winter was solemnized last evening at the home of Mrs. Mary Bryar, of East High street, when she gave in marriage, her daughter Anna to Mr. Harry Bonner, of Dayton. It was a five o'clock wedding, accompanied with everything that was delightfully simple and unpretentious. The cosy home throughout was adorned attractively with roses and smilax. Dr. J. W. Peters, of the M. E. church, performed the beautiful and impressive ceremony that united this happy couple for life. During the ceremony Miss Frances Jacobs played a sweet musical program. They were unattended and the bride, a pretty blond, wore a white organdie stylishily made with ruffles edged with valencienes lace, with a sash of shimmering white taffeta ribbon. She carried a bouquet of bride roses, tied with long streamer of white ribbon. Congratulations followed, after which a wedding supper was partaken of by the relatives and a few intimate friends. The bride's table was spread in the dining room and was a symphony in pink, the happy company seated about it being Mr. and Mrs. Bonner, Miss Etta Graham, of Cincinnati, Mary Baldwin, Edna Fravel, of Xenia, Ella Bryar, Fred Bonner, of Dayton, and Richard Bryar. Mr. and Mrs. Bonner left on the 7 o'clock train for Dayton, where a lovely home awaited them. [Xenia Daily Gazette (Xenia, Ohio) 22 Jan 1898, p. 6; tr by KT]
