SEXTON - HARRELL

One of Fairland's Most Beautiful Girls
Wedded to Ohio Man
------------
Fairland, October 4   --   The crowning social event of the season occurred at the home of  Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Harrell  of this place.  It was the marriage of their daughter,  Gertrude, to  Mr. William A. Sexton, of Columbus, Ohio, Rev. F. A. Guthrie, of Morristown officiating.   The bride-elect was handsomely attired in Brussels net over white tiffany.
          There were 150 guests present, most those from a distance were Patrolman Landacre,  Mr. and Mrs. Peck, of Columbus, Ohio;  Mr. and Mrs. McClellan  and daughter, of Indianapolis;  Mr. and Mrs. Marsh Tindall,  Mr. and Mrs. Michael Yarling,  Misses Hulda Bass  and  Marie Ensminger, of Shelbyville;  Dr. Sam Harrell and wife, of Noblesville.
          Mrs. Sexton was formerly a successful teacher in our public schools and an acknowledged leader in society circles, possessing those charms characteristic of the true type of lady that inspires admiration and love for her sex.
          The groom is a trusted and valued member of the police department of Columbus, Ohio, and a son of  Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Sexton, of VanBuren township, representative people of the community.
          Many handsome and valued presents were received by the happy pair. Refreshments were served in two courses and at a late hour each guest retired to his home wishing the happy twain a successful and prosperous voyage over the bounding billows on the matrimonial sea.
          Mr. and Mrs. Sexton will be at home to their friends at 621 Lexington Avenue, Columbus, Ohio, after November 1, 1905.

          Mr. Greenup Sexson, formerly of this county, but late of Franklin, has now located at Frankfort in this State, and will practice law in that city.  Mr. Sexson is a talented young man, has fine social qualities, besides being a moral and upright gentleman, His many friends in this city and county wish him success.  We understand that our genial friend,  Frank Moore,  also goes to Frankfort with Mr. Sexson and that the two will continue in partnership.  Greenup is a Republican and Frank a Democrat, and if they can keep from quarreling over the respective merits of the "Plumed Knight" and "Old Bach Cleveland," there are hopes that perfect harmony will prevail in the Sexson-Moore household.
