Page 5 Matrimonial
Accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Beazley, Mr. J. R. Beazley and Miss Clara Mershon drove over to Danville Wednesday night and were made one after God's holy ordinance by Rev. Savage, of the Methodist church. The marriage occurred in the Gilcher House and Mr. Samuel W. Menefee was master of ceremonies. After a nice supper Mr. and Mrs. Beazley returned to Stanford and are now at home to their friends at the St. Asaph. The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Mershon and is as pretty as she is capable and deserving. She has been with Mr. J. P. Jones since his advent into business here and his loss is Mr. Beazley's gain. Possessed of a sweet and cultured voice she has been much in demand at church and other entertainments, and has always responded willingly and praiseworthily. The groom is the well-known liveryman and a good business man of exemplary habits. Congratulations are being extended on all sides and everybody wishes the happy pair a life long honeymoon.

Beazley - After an illness of typhoid fever covering a period of five weeks, Mrs. Clara Mershon Beazley, wife of James R. Beazley, breathed her last yesterday afternoon about 3:30. Mrs. Beazley was Miss Clara Mershon, oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John B. Mershon, of Somerset, and was 28 years of age. About six years ago she was married to Mr. Beazley and he with one little girl are left to mourn the loss of a tender wife and mother. Mrs. Beazley was a member of the Christian church and was a conscientious, good woman. Besides the husband and daughter, her parents and two sisters, Mrs. Arthur C. Hill of this place, and Mrs. C. M. Pennybacker, of Somerset, survive her. In the prime of life and surrounded as she was by loving friends, a fond husband and beautiful child, Mrs. Beazley was indeed happy and it seems hard that she had to be taken from her loved ones. But He who knows best has called and she has gone to her reward. At 10:30 tomorrow morning Rev. L. M. Owen will conduct the funeral services at the Christian church, after which the remains will be laid to rest in Buffalo cemetery.
Mr. Embry T. Beazley and wife, of Harrodsburg, are here to attend the burial of Mrs. J. R. Beazley.
