Miss Lottie Mae Lyle, Violinist, Mr. Ray Meacham, Vocalist and Miss Elsie Davis, Pianist, gave the nuptial music which preceded the taking of the vows.

Miss Lyle, rendered as a solo “Humoresque” and Mr. Meacham sang “Out of this World”, “Our Heart”, and “I Love You Truly”. Miss Davis played at the piano “Cupid’s Garden”.
The porch of the lovely home was background for the wedding party and for the lands of Jackson vine which artistically framed the windows and door. Flowers and Fern were advantageously used to complement the pretty setting.
The bride wore a handsome fall frock of African brown chiffon velvet with a small close-fitting hat of matching shade. Her only adornment was a string of pearls, a gift from the groom and she wore a corsage of Columbia roses.

63   EUDORA HARPER - J. CALVIN BATSON


From: Clarksville Leaf Chronicle

July 24,1875--Come with me to Barren Fork a prong of Barton’s Creek and let us look in upon a small gathering at the residence of D.H. Harper the evening of the 14th. J. Calvin Batson and Eudora Harper, both young and pious, stood before a Reverend gentleman and the twain were made one flesh. A delightful supper, cheerful conversation, several of Zion’s sweet songs and we retire to rest. No coarse just nor unholy dance nor vulgar “play” desecrated the occasion. Such things are as unbecoming at a wedding as they are at church. Robert Harvey cut the ring out of the bride’s cake which constitutes him the next bridegroom. Eskew Batson wants him to hurry up his nuptials as he is impatient to be on the same line. I am not so sure that the ring sign is very reliable. At Joe Corban’s and Kitty Batson’s wedding last winter on the same creek, Dal’l Mills “cut the ring” and he is running at large yet. I reckon of all the things in the world courting is the hardest to do and it puts in the most awkward shape when a youngster is really in love.
