- from a scrapbook at the Linesville Historical Society:
Miss Eudora Claire Spencer, daughter of Rev. and Mrs. EW Spence, of Apple Creek, Ohio, and William Howard Greene, son of Mr. and Mrs. Guy Greene were married at the Spence home at noon, Saturday, April 23rd, by the bride's father.
Preceding the ceremony the bride's brother, Edward Spence, sang "Because."
To the strains of the beautiful Logengrin wedding march, played by Mrs. Forest Burkholder, the bride, making a beautiful picture, descended the stairs in her gown of blue net and taffeta, fashioned by Molyneux.
She carried an old fashioned Colonial bouquet of pink roses and lilies of the valley.
She was met at the foot of the stairs by her sister, Miss Edna Spence, her only attendant, who was dressed in floor length gown of peach Marquisete, carrying Talisman roses and white sweet peas.
Proceeding to a beautiful improvised altar of palms, ferns and spring flowers, the groom awaited them with Robert L. Darke of Linesville, serving as best man. After the ceremony, a wedding breakfast was served in Kenney's private dining room for the families and a few close friends. A four tier wedding cake topped by a miniature bride and groom, a gift of Mr. Keeney, and surrounded by a profusion of sweet peas and baby breath, formed a beautiful center piece.
The bride attended college at Huron, S.D., and Wooster, and for the past year and a half has been employed at Bechtel's, Wooster, O.
Mr. Greene attended Allegheny College and is a member of Phi Gamma Delta.
For traveling, the bride chose a cape and suit ensemble of French beige with navy accessories.
Immediately after the breakfast the young couple left for a short motor trip through the south and east, after which they will be at home in Linesville.
