Roanoke Beacon – 22 Jul 1898
Cupid’s Capers – The M.E. Church at Roper was the scene of a pretty marriage last night at 8 o’clock, the contracting parties being Mr. W.B. Jones, a popular salesman of that town, and Miss Florida Spruill, one of Washington county’s most lovable young ladies. The attendants were: Miss Alice Cahoon with Mr. Johnnie Hassell, Miss Bessie Brown with Mr. Clem Chesson; Maid of Honor, Miss Eloise Johnston; Best Man, Mr. Jas. Spruill. The wedding march was played by Mrs. J.T. Lewis.
After the ceremony the bridal party, with a few invited friends, repaired to the home of the bride’s parents, where a reception was held until 11 o’clock. Our best wishes are extended to the happy couple.
