Marriage Register graphic

Curtis, R. A. and Crandall, O. H., Dr.
There was a small company at the residence of Mrs. R. A. Curtis, on Vermont street, last evening, to witness the marriage of the hostess to Dr. O. H. Crandall, the ceremony being performed by the Rev. William Waller, of the First Baptist church. The event was an interesting one for others besides those present, the couple having many friends in the city. The doctor is well and favorably known professionally, his skill as a physician caring for him public regard which must be heightened by the fact of his marriage.

Mr. Stout, pastor of the church, officiating. Miss Gracie Bomgardner, sister of the bride, and Mr. Henry Spellman were the attendants, Messers. Charles Howell, George Lyford, A. M. Jones and E. Keck acting as ushers. The church was very neatly decorated for the occasion, beautiful bouquets and an elegant floral horse-since forming the altar ornaments.
