Transcribed Marriages



Last Thursday, Mr. Emanuel Martin of the Ocala Law firm of Davis and Martin, gave his many Ocala friends an announcement of genuine surprise by going to Largo and marrying Miss Nellie Gordon. 

The ceremony took place at the home of the bride. Mr. Martin returned home Friday and his bride arrived today. For the present, Mr. and Mrs. Martin will make their home with Mrs. George Close, sister of the groom. 

Mr. Martin is so well known to the people of Ocala and  Marion County, that he needs no introduction at our hands. He is the talented son of Rev. Harmon Martin of Fort McCoy. He secured his education at his home school supplemented by a course in the Ocala High School and later was a student at Stetson University. He prepared himself for law by attending a law school at Lebanon, Tennessee. He also followed the profession of teaching, having taught very successfully the Fellowship School for a number of years where he became a favorite of those pupils and patrons. Here he met the present Mrs. Martin, a pupil of his school. The Gordon family, now of Largo, were former residents of the fellowship neighborhood. The bride is a lovely young lady endowed in heart and mind, of all the admirable virtues of her sex.

The star wishes the young couple all the success and happiness imaginable in their married life.
