Grace M. Talbut to George Milton Augur 1916
One of the prettiest social events of the season occurred at Hartwick, Wednesday afternoon, at 2:30 o'clock, at the Christian church when Miss Grace M. Talbut, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dorrance C. Talbut of New Lisbon, was united in marriage to George Milton Augur of Hartwick. Bronner's orchestra of Cooperstown, concealed behind a screen of locust boughs, playing the wedding march. The bridal procession was led by Ebenezer C. Talbut of Leonardsville and W. Clyde Carr of Hartwick, brothers-in-law of the bride, the Rev. and Mrs. Albert Louckes, and Drs. Blaine I. And Benjamin H. Talbut of Hartwick, brothers of the bride, followed by the bride and groom. They took their places under an arch of evergreen from which was suspended a mammouth wedding bell of green. The entire decorations were ferns, evergreens and cut flowers of yellow and white. The full ring service was used.
The bride was handsomely gowned in ivory colored satin trimmed with Venetian lace and with a train and veil. The dress was designed and made by the bride's grandmother, Mrs. Catherine Mack, now in her eighty-third year. The groom is supervisor of the town of Hartwick and is very well known throughout the entire county. His friends are legion and are as extensive as his acquaintances. He has won as his bride a young lady of most enviable characteristics. She is a graduate of the Cooperstown High school and Training Class and has sucessfully taught for several years in the southern states and on the Isthmus of Panama. Through her kindly and thoughtful disposition she possesses a host of friends who will join in congratulations and good wishes. The marriage was probably the most largely attended function of its kind held in Harwick in recent years.
Following the service at the church a reception was given at the home of Drs. B. I. And B. H. Talbut on South street. The color scheme used in decorating was yellow and white, that at the church being green and white.
