Wedding Wednesday: Howdershell-Bell

Richmond Dispatch (Richmond, VA)
21 December 1902


Waterfall, VA, December 20, 1902 -- A very pretty wedding was solemnized Wednesday evening at Antioch Baptist church, at this place, the contracting parties being Miss Edith Howdershell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Howdershell, and Mr. Howard Stanley Bell, all of Prince William county.  At about 5:30 o'clock, to the strains of the Mendelsshon march, the bridal party entered the church from the vestibule, and the bride, with the maid of honor, Miss Clara Bell, sister of the groom, proceeded up the left aisle, while the groom, with the best man, Mr. William M. Jordan, proceeded up the right aisle, to the altar, where they were made one by the Rev. C. W. Trainham of Manassas.

The ushers were Mr. Randolph Smith, Mr. Charles Keyser, Mr. Herman Shirley, and Mr. Frank Pickett.

After the ceremony the happy couple was driven to Haymarket, where they took the train for a tour to points north.
