Meyer - Snyder
On Wednesday, June 3, Miss Elizabeth Vemba Synder, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. E. Snyder of Moweaqua, Illinois, and Mr. George W. Meyer of Edwardsville, Illinois, were united in marriage. The ceremony was performed at eight o'clock in the evening by Rev. Mr. Peck at the home of the bride's parents. The wedding was a very quiet one, only the relatives and a few intimate friends being present. The couple soon afterward took their departure for Denver, Colorado, where they are spending their honeymoon. Upon their return to Illinois they will begin housekeeping in a handsome residence which the groom has prepared in Edwardsville for his bride, where they will be at home to their numerous friends after July the first. The groom is one of the leading merchants of the city of Edwardsville, and a man of wealth and high standing in that community. In a few visits to Gibson he has made several warm friends. The bride is a sister of Mrs. J. Y. Shamel of this city, and personally known to a large number of the residents of Gibson.
She is a charming and accomplished young woman. The Ewardsville Intelligencer, in speaking of the announcement of this wedding last week, made the following complimentery reference to the bride and groom: Many facts contribute to the making of the degree of interest that others feel in this event. Mr. Meyer is one of the foremost business men of the city. Furthermore he has grown up with the city in large measure, as he came here penniless years ago, and by hard work, thrift and careful investment has accumulated a comfortable fortune. He is a member off the Madison Mercantile Company and an officer and large stockholder in the First National Bank. He has been scrupulous in observance of social duties, and has found his chief pleasure in benefecations in the city. Not even his most intimate friends guess how many of the poor are helped in a quiet way by Mr. Meyer, but the total yearly is by no means small.
The bride-elect won the hearts of Edwardsville people as soon as she arrived here in the fall of 1904 to become principal of the high school. She taught here for three years, leaving in June last year. Aside from her charms of face and manner was a musical voice and a sweetness of disposition that brought her many admirers. It is well known that Mr. Meyer had plenty of competition for the favors of the lady, and he is therefore all the more to be congratulated upon being acknowledged victor.
