Romantic Wedding at Cumberland Md.
School Girl Defies
All Obstacles and Weds the Man of her Choice
A romance in true life is to be found in the
elopement of Miss Myrtle Eckenrode, daughter of Mrs. Anna Eckenrode, who
resides near Fenwycke Hall at this place and John Murphy of Carrolltown, who
were united in marriage in Cumberland Friday night. The bride’s mother knew nothing of the affair
until she received a telephone message from her daughter Saturday morning.
The runaway wedding, which is said to have
been due to maternal objections because of the tender years of the bride, who
is not yet out of her teens and who was a student at the Ebensburg High school,
is an evidence of the fact that while the course of true love may not run
smoothly it is able to surmount all difficulties.
Mrs. Eckenrode resides in this place with two
daughters, the other being Miss Vera Eckenrode.
Thursday she received an invitation to attend a reunion near
Carrolltown. She went to attend the
affair, leaving her daughters alone.
Friday morning, Miss Myrtle told her sister not to wait for her as she
would join her later at school. Instead,
however, she took the morning train to Kaylor station where she was joined by
Mr. Murphy, who is a popular young barber of Carrolltown. The couple went to Johnstown and Friday afternoon traveled over the S.
& C. branch to Cumberland where they were married. A telephone message to Ebensburg Saturday
morning conveyed this information to the Eckenrode family, along with the
statement that the couple were enjoying a happy honeymoon.
The bride is a member of one of Ebensburg’s
representative families. It is understood
that Mrs. Eckenrode wished the match to be postponed until her daughter had
completed her course in the High School.
The young people, however, have known each other since childhood and
were unwilling to wait and, strong in their love for each other, declared to
brave all objections.
A telephone message from Carrolltown this
morning states Mr. Murphy is ill with pneumonia at the home of his
parents. The bride is visiting with
relatives in Altoona.
