DAVIS - HOLLOWAY Monroe Advertiser, Dec, 22 1905: A quiet marriage, flavored some what with the Gretna green environment, took place at the Baptist church at Russellville Sunday, the contracting parties being Mr. Ben F. Davis and Miss Mary V. Holloway, with Rev. J.F. Holmes officiating. Out in the grove in a buggy snugly from view by having the curtains up, sat the couple while the pastor performed the ceremony, while around the church door stood the audience in ignorant bliss. The happy couple then went to the house of the bride's parents to a dining which the bride and her mother had prepared for friends that might come home with them from the church, but which the bride in reality knew was to be her wedding feast. Mr. and Mrs. Davis are two of the county's most popular young people, as well as being of most prominent and highly respected families. Their many friends hope that peace, happiness and prosperity will ever be their lot.
