PAGE 35 - 4th page of Wedding notices, Cards
As noted in previous pages, this blog is for the purpose of inventorying every page in my maternal great-grandfather's TERWILLIGER SOUVENIR ALBUM, covering the years from 1840-1900 or so. See Page 32 , Page 33, and Page 34 for the previous of 4 consecutive pages of wedding cards and notices. While Page 32 contained items for our TERWILLIGER & GRAVES family members, the next pages seem to be primarily of their friends.
Because of how these cards are organized, I will start at the top and list them horizontally.
1. CROHEN - ALVORD
Mr. Hermann Crohen / requests the pleasure of your company / at the wedding reception of his daughter / Julia / and / Thomas G. Alvord, Jr. / Thursday evening October ninth / from eight until ten o'clock / No. 14 Sidney Place / Brooklyn / 1884
This place is still standing, with a pretty turquoise-painted door entryway.
2. COOMBS - FOX
Mr & Mrs. William Jerome Coombs / announce the marriage of their daughter / Mary, / to / Dr. Sidney Allan Fox, / Tuesday, April twelfth, 1887. / Brooklyn, N.Y.
3. HOTALING - HITCHCOCK
Mr. George P. Hotaling, / Miss Jenny A. Hitchcock, / Married / Thursday, October eighteenth, 1883 / New York City.
At Home Fridays, / The Seward, / 175 East 93rd Street
The middle horizontal row is of visiting cards:
4. Mr. & Mrs. George S. Hier
5. Dr. & Mrs. Gaylord P. Clark
6. Mr. & Mrs. Fred Frazer
The bottom horizontal row, continues:
7. EDDY - LEGGAT
Mr. & Mrs. Robert H. Eddy / request your presence / at the marriage of their daughter / Emma Sutherland, / to / Mr. Walter Romaine Leggat / on Tuesday evening, May twenty fourth, / at eight o'clock. / West Presbyterian Church, / Forty second Street between 5th & 6th Avenues.
[The church was demolished before 1912 - see image on the right]
8. FLUKE - WADSWORTH
Mr. & Mrs. John Fluke / request your presence / at the marriage of their daughter / Caroline Burleigh / to / Edward L. Wadsworth, / Wednesday evening Sept. 8th / at eight o'clock. / Trinity Church / Renovo, Pa. / 1886
[Renovo PA is a tiny town in central PA, so likely my great-grandparents didn't attend.]
9. LAMB - TAIT [1925 marriage invitation - only late-dated one in the album]
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Rollinson Lamb / announce the marriage of their daughter / Katharine Stymets / to Mr. Trevor Spottiswoode Tait / on Saturday, the fourteenth of November / One thousand, nine hundred and twenty-five / at The Fold / Cresskill, New Jersey
The next page in the TERWILLIGER SOUVENIR ALBUM is a mixture of family profiles, and other ephemera. Eclectic.
