Marriage Announcement

Frederick, Md., April 7 (1910) — Miss Louise Pearre Davis, daughter of Mr. T. Wallace Davis, of Urbana, and Mr. John W. Brosius were married by Rev. George B. Harrington.

Old Wedding Gown Worn at Party for Nursing Center Residents

An unexpected costume was worn recently at a masquerade party for residents of the Frederick Nursing Home and Convalescent Center.

Mrs. Louise Pearre Brosius, a resident of the center, made her appearance in the wedding gown she wore April 5, 1910, when she married John William Brosius.

Mrs. Brosius told the guests she made the entire gown herself. The gown—a size 12—still fits.

The wedding, she said, took place at the farm of her parents near Sugarloaf Mountain, and was presided over by the Rev. John Griggs, an Episcopal minister from Poolesville.

Following the ceremony, she continued, the bride and groom took a honeymoon trip to Washington, D.C., in a two-horse carriage. The couple settled in the Frederick area and raised two sons, William and Louis, who now operate a contracting business in Frederick.
