DAMARIN & MCFARLAND - We take the following from the report in
Portsmouth Times, of the wedding of Charles C. DAMARIN and Miss Jennie
MCFARLAND, youngest daughter of Mr. A. MCFARLAND, editor of Portsmouth

Church, in that place: "By seven o'clock all were seated, and in a few

entrance at the foot of the main aisle.
It was preceded by two beautiful blondes of twelve and thirteen, dressed
in white tarletan, Miss Mary DAMARIN, sister of the bridegroom, and Miss
Katie KREIGH, of Chicago, cousin of the bride. They were followed by
two Misses of seven years, Miss Lillie MCFARLAND, dressed in white with
pink sash, Miss Tillie KRIEGH, in pink, both cousins of the bride.

passed up the aisle. The attendants came next, Miss Edith SAFFORD,
daughter of Judge SAFFORD, of Chillicothe, escorted by Dan. MCFARLAND,
youngest brother of the bride, Miss Jennie TEWKSBURY and Mr. Walter
CISSNA, Miss Katie HULL and Mr. John W. KINNEY, Miss Lou TOWELL and Mr.
M.W. REYNOLDS, of Cleveland, a college mate of the bridegroom. The

At eight o'clock the invited guests to the number of three hundred, were
handsomely received by the parents of the bride at their residence, on
Second Street, where tables were spread up stairs and down.
