A ROMANTIC WEDDING
Miss Isabelle Carr of Corning, NY is Married to Mr. J.E. Hamilton a Native of Lexington – An Interesting Ceremony
At 7:30 last Evening at the Trinity Methodist parsonage on East Second street, Miss Isabelle Carr of Buffalo, NY was married to Mr. J. E. Hamilton of Lexington. The beautiful ceremony was impressively performed by Rev. Frank Siler.
Miss Carr is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E.P Carr, of Buffalo. By advice of her physicians she came to Asheville last December for her health. It was thee that she met Mr. Hamilton, who was connected with the Paragon Pharmacy Company of that city. They became engaged and expected to be married in Asheville next Sunday, but on Wednesday of last week Miss Carr received a telegram stating that her brother was seriously ill and requesting her to return home. She left Asheville on Wednesday and had proceeded as far as Salisbury on her homeward journey when she received another telegram saying that her brother was out of danger.
By natural right Mr. Hamilton appeared on the scene at this point. He had obtained a position as traveling salesman for Messrs. Burwell & Dunn of this city and by appointment on Wednesday evening went from Charlotte to Salisbury to meet his fiancée. Seeing that there was no necessity for Miss Carr's return to the North he advised her to come to Charlotte for a few days stay. She consented. Then came the usual sequel. Mr. Hamilton urged an early wedding and Miss Carr yielded to his wishes.
The bride is a beautiful woman – dark, slender, distingue. Her picture appears in last Sunday's New York World as one of the eight beautiful women who are candidates in The World's Pan-American beauty contest for the official emblems of the Buffalo Exposition in 1901.
Among the guests of the Central Hotel, where Miss Carr was stopping, the interest in the romantic marriage was general and the ladies at the hotel had determined to make the wedding a thorough social success. Those who were particularly active were Mrs. E. C. Register, who attended to everything; Mrs. Clifford Anderson and Miss Daisy Collett. Mrs. Julius Leisel and Miss Addie Williams were also present at the ceremony to wish happiness for the young couple. In addition to these witnesses there were half a dozen men, friends and acquaintances of the groom. The only relative of either contracting party who was in attendance was Mr. Adolphus Hamilton of Concord, a brother of the groom.
Miss Daisy Collett was maid of honor for the bride and Mr M.M. Murphy was the groom's best man. The bride wore a charming going-away gown of gray.
After the wedding Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton left for Lexington, where they will remain for a few days, when they will go to Asheville. Eventually they expect to reside in Charlotte.
Eventually, Jesse Eli and Isabelle Carr Hamilton would move to Denver, Colorado where Jesse would become a pharmacist for the next 38 years.
During that time, they would become the parents of
John E Hamilton 1913–1981 [no known info]
Jane Elizabeth Hamilton 1915–1981 [married David B. Hall; no known children]
William Gallimore Hamilton 1919 – 1920
