Mary Jane Burwell is the daughter of Newton and Josephine Burwell. She married John Alley 29 Jun 1910 Enid Ok. Children are John Newton Alley and Harry Hall Alley. Maj Harry Alley was killed in WWII in a plane crash over Belgium.


The Enid Morning News, Thursday, June 30, contained the following account
of the wedding of Miss Mary Jane Burwell of Enid and Prof. John Alley of
Tonkawa. Prof. Alley has a large acquaintance throughout the state.

One of the most prominent and beautiful of the season's home wedding was
quietly celebrated on Wednesday afternoon at four o'clock, when Miss Mary
Jane Burwell of this city was married to Mr. John Alley of Tonkawa. On
account of the death of Mr. Alley's father, which occurred yesterday, all
invitations were recalled and only the immediate family and out-of-town
guests attended. The bride's home, which had been previously decorated,
was beautiful and artistic.

Rev. Bishop Brooke of Oklahoma City performed the impressive Episcopal
ring service. The bridal couple stood in the arched doorway between the

reception hall and drawing room for the ceremony. Miss Burwell, who is
extremely pretty, being of the brunette type, was never lovelier than when
dressed in her wedding gown of white lingerie, elaborately trimmed in
valenciennes and baby, Irish laces, facing the yoke and sleeves and cut in
semi-princess of round length. Immediately after the ceremony Mr. and
Mrs. Alley left for Canada, where they will spend their honeymoon,
returning to Tonkawa in about two months, where they will make their home

in the future. The bride's going away frock was of tan rajah with a stylish
hat to match. Mrs. Alley is extremely popular and attractive and
has many friends who wish her every happiness, but who regret exceedingly

giving her up to another place, Mr. Alley, who is president of the
University preparatory school of Tonkawa, is a well known athlete, highly
successful in his profession and very popular. Out of town guests at the
wedding were: Messrs. And Mmes. J.B. Burwell of Oklahoma City; A.C.
Burwell of Ardmore; N.B. Burwell of Dallas, Tex., W.C. Edwards of Kansas
City; F.L. Boynton and daughters Gertrude and Marguerite, of Kingfisher;
Miss Daisy Sullivan of Pueblo, Colo.; Mrs. Roland Smith of Oklahoma City;
Mrs. R.B. Callahan and daughter Louise, and Mr. Burwell Callahan of
