Albes-Atwater Nuptials
An extremely quiet and very happy wedding took place in San Rafael on Petaluma avenue last Tuesday. The contracting parties were Thomas Grant Ables, nephew of the Hon. T.J. Ables, the Tomales banker, and Miss Jennie E. Atwater, sister of Miss Lizzie Atwater, the well known school teacher of San Rafael. The wedding ceremony was performed by the Rev. Mr. Woodward of Petaluma. Only relatives and intimate friends of the family witnessed the ceremony. The groom is well known in Tomales and was in the employ of Supervisor Burbank for sometime. At present he holds a lucrative position in Petaluma, where the honeymoon will be spent.
