Churchill, Cornelius W. to Herrick, Ethel R. 7 Jul 1915
Miss Ethel R. Herrick, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank J. Herrick of
5 Varnum street, and Cornelius W. Churchill, a machinist's mate on board the United States mine laying ship San Francisco, were married at 7 o'clock last evening at the home of the bride's parents by Rev. William F. Dusseault of the Second Universalist church. The double ring service was used.
The couple were attended by Miss Ruth Herrick, a sister of the bride, as bridesmaid, and Albert Churchill of Boston, an uncle of the groom, as best man.
But a few selected friends and relatives of the contracting parties were present to witness the simple ceremony, the culmination of a romance of four years' standing. Mr. Churchill first met his bride at a meeting of the Pleasant Hour club of the Second Universalist church. Their regard for each other ripened into a courtship that was carried on by mail after Mr. Churchill enlisted in the navy 2 ½ years ago.
In a gown of white silk meteor, trimmed with antique lace and pearls, and carrying a large bouquet of bridal roses, the bride was charming.
Her bridesmaid, Miss Ruth Herrick, was attired in an embroidered net gown.
Among the many beautiful presents received by the couple were a purse of gold from the J. B. Blood Co., where the bride has been employed, and a purse of silver from the bride's former coworkers in the office of that firm.
From the groom the bride received a beautiful string of pearl beads, while the bridesmaid received a gold bracelet from the bride. Mr. Churchill presented his best man with a gold watch charm.
Mr. and Mrs. Churchill left for Newport, R. I., where Mr. Churchill's ship is stationed for the summer. In the winter it will put in at Pensacola, Fla., and here Mrs. Churchill will go with her husband, where she will await the expiration of his term of enlistment.
Mr. Churchill is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest T. Churchill of New Orleans, La.
