Wedding Wednesday: Thelin / Clarkson

Baltimore American
21 June 1905


Will Wed Today. -- A marriage of much interest, to take place this evening, will be that of Miss Marie Bertin Thelin, daughter of Mrs. William Thelin, of Mount Washington, to Mr. Thomas B. Clarkson, of Prince William county, Va.  The bride-elect on the paternal side is a representative of an old French Huguenot family, of which her father, the late William T. Thelin, was of the second generation to settle in this country.  Through her mother, who was a Miss Griswold, she belongs to one of the leading colonial families of Maryland.  She is a very attractive young girl, with all the charm and vivacity of manner inherited through both lines of ancestry.  Mr. Clarkson is a son of Dr. Clarkson, and comes of an equally distinguished old South Carolina family.  The ceremony will be performed at St. John's Protestant Episcopal Church, at Mount Washington, at 8 o'clock, and will be followed by a small reception for members of the two families and a few intimate friends only at the residence of Mrs. Thelin.  The bride will be given away by her brother, Mr. Griswold Thelin.  Her only attendants will be two little flower girls -- Miss May Kirk and Miss Flay Vandenberg.  Mr. Walter Clarkson, of Washington, brother of the groom, will be best man.  The ushers will be Mr. Robert H. B. Beverly, Mr. Alexander M. Breckenridge and Mr. Hugh T. Clarkson, all of Virginia; Mr. Carl Clarkson, of Alabama; Mr. Thomas B. Headley, of Philadelphia, and Mr. William C. Thelin, of Lewistown, PA.
