Joseph Albert Sullivan and Mary Ewing Parks

Jackson Citizen Patriot, 6 Jul 1921, page 5


Miss Mary E. Parks and J. A. Sullivan are married Wednesday.

Amid a setting of shasta daisies, gladioli and stately palms a lovely summer wedding was solemnized Wednesday at 1 o'clock at the home of Mr. and Mrs. James E. Hargreaves, 116 McBride street when Miss Mary Ewing Parks became the bride of Lieut. J. A. Sullivan of Edgewood, Md. Rev S. A. Griffith, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, officiating.

Clusters of the flowers were used throughout the rooms, while a banking of the palms afforded a temporary altar for the ceremony. The bride was given in marriage by her brother, Robert M. Parks, of New York city. Mrs. James E. Hargreaves sang "I Love You Truly" preceding the ceremony, accompanied by Miss Helen Parks, of Louisville, Ky.

The bride wore a beautiful gown of white organdy trimmed with real lace, an heirloom in the family, and carried a handkerchief which belonged to her mother. A hat of white georgette and a corsage of Ophelia roses completed the charming toilette.

Following the service an informal luncheon was served, only the immediate families and a few close friends being present for the happy occasion.

Lieut. and Mrs. Sullivan will spend their honey moon at Evans Lake and after Aug. 1 will be at home at Edgewood, Md. Lieut. Sullivan is with the Sixth Field Artillery, stationed at Edgewood.

Among the guests from away were Mrs. Louise Parks Richards, of Anderson, Ind.; Miss Helen Parks of Louisville, Ky.; Robert M. Parks of New York city; Mrs. Curtis Later, of Detroit; Mrs. Peter Hamerlink, of Lansing, and Miss Katherine Miller of Chicago.
