CONGRESSMAN BRANTLEY TO BE MARRIED.
We find the following announcement in the Atlanta Journal, and take occasion to tender congratulations in advance:
Birmingham, Ala. - Dec. 17.
The engagement is announced of Miss Mary George Linn, of this city, and Hon. William Gordon Brantley, of Brunswick, Ga., congressman from the Eleventh district. The marriage will take place quietly in this city Jan. 8, at the home of the bride’s aunt, Mrs. John C. Henley.
Mr. Brantley is a widower with one child. Miss Linn is the granddaughter of the late Edward Linn, a pioneer citizen of Birmingham, and the founder and the first president of the First National Bank, the leading banking institution of the city. Her father was the late Edward W. Linn, who was for years cashier of the bank which his father founded.
Miss Linn was reared in Birmingham and received a finished education. While not a beautiful woman, she is graceful in figure and carriage and charming in her manner. She is a great favorite in Birmingham society. Miss Linn has taught in the public schools of Birmingham several years. Mr. Brantley met her during his visits to Birmingham in the interest of the proposed Brunswick and Birmingham railroad. Immediately after the marriage Mr. Brantley and his bride will go to Washington.
