BROOKS, HATTIE C. - Orange Blossoms - A Brilliant Wedding in the Border City - One of Piqua's Fair Daughters Stolen by a Trojan Gallant - In St. James Protestant Episcopal Church, in Piqua, O., on Tuesday evening, July 10th, 1877, by Rev. H. L. Badger, Mr. Nathan C. Perry, of Troy, and Hattie C., daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hiram Brooks, of Piqua.  The rival cities have joined hands, albeit a slight grudge exists on the part of Piqua that the "Center" should have robbed it of one of its choicest treasures.  St. James Church was crowded to its utmost capacity on Tuesday evening, but the perfect arrangements for the occasion, made under the direction of Mrs. Harlow, prevented inconvenience.  The front portion of the church was reserved for the invited guests, who were ushered to their seats by Messrs. John Daniels and Emory Sawyer and Dr. Chas. Davies.  The gallery and the rear portion of the auditorium was filled by an interested audience, whose good-natured and curious whisperings and comments on the handsome decorations of the altar were suddenly hushed, as the officiating clergyman, Mr. Badger, appeared in his robes.  Then as the keys of the grand organ responded to the pressure of Miss Laura Schafer's skillful fingers, in the notes of Mendelssohn's Wedding March, the doors were thrown open and the bridal party entered.  First walked the ushers, then the attendants, Mr. Amos H. Sawyer, of Piqua, and Miss Lilly Perry, of Greenville, and Mr. D. McCullough, of Troy, and Miss Laura Friedlich, of Piqua, and finally came the pair soon to be made one in the sight of God and man.  The beautiful ceremony of the Episcopal Church was performed and as husband and wife the pair retraced their steps to the front entrance, where carriages were in waiting to convey them and the invited guests to the residence of the bride's parents.  Arriving there we found the bridal party engaged in receiving the congratulations of the friends who crowded the parlors.  In another room the parents of the bride were receiving congratulations, while they gazed proudly but sorrowfully on their daughter, in a few short hours to be taken from them, and ever and anon as if for consolation, their eyes sought the spot where the daughter still left to them stood entertaining guests.  Though their home circle may have a vacant chair, yet have the parents still a home treasure, a bud soon to mature into a charming and noble womanhood.  But a short time sufficed to banish formality, and social enjoyment was soon at its height.  "Fayre women and brayve men" from Piqua, Troy and other cities, mingled together, and in laughter and merriment the hours flew by.  We noticed among those present and apparently enjoying the evening with great zest, Mr. W. C. Brooks, of Van Wert, and Miss Emma Brooks, Mr. Geo. Perry, of Greenville, Mr. Jacob A. Friedlich, of Cincinnati, Miss Hattie Martin, Miss Ella Spiker, Miss Minnie Friedlich, Mrs. Kate Harlow, Mr. Jas. Johnston, Dr. C. H. Davies, Mr. and Mrs. John W. Stafford, Mr. Willis Hall, Mr. Walter D. Jones, Mr. John Daniels, Mr. Samuel Davis, Mr. E. F. Sawyer, Mr. A. H. Sawyer, Dr. and Mrs. C. S. Parker, Mr. and Mrs. A. Friedlich, Mr. E. Friedlich, Mr. J. G. Patterson and lady, Mr. T. M. Crow, Mr. J. L. Carson, Dr. and Mrs. G. V. Dorsey, and many others from Piqua; Mr. Robt. D. L. Ball, of Keeve, N. H., and Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Baker, Mr. and Mrs. G. T. Thomas, Mr. and Mrs. W. A. R. Tenney, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. T. Riley, Mr. and Mrs. John Rodgers, Mr. and Mrs. George Thompson, Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Friedlich, Misses Lutie Morris, Sally Kyle, Seba Wagner, Clara Gibbs, Lou Parson, Ella Janvier, Mattie Dye, Jessie Coleman, Lillie Senour, Lida Kramer, Messrs. L. H. Thompson, John Stillwell, L. L. Defrees, Chas. Ross, Nick Kramer, John Senour, Tom Kyle, Tom Gibbs, Luther Snyder, Ed Kyle, Tom Gibbs, Luther Snyder, Ed Wasserman, W. Becker, Rob Parsons, of Troy; Mr. and Mrs. Bowman, Mrs. and Mrs. John Booher, of Tippecanoe City.  Many stylish and handsome costumes were visible, and we give a description of the dresses of the bridal party, in which description we are assisted by a lady friend: Bride's dress, sea foam silk, made Princesse, trimmed with point lace and orange blossoms.  First Bridesmaid (Miss Lilly Perry), Lavender silk with white tarleton overdress, garniture of geranium leaves.  Second Bridesmaid, (Miss Laura Friedlich), white dotted Swiss, trimmed with daisies.  In one of the rooms were displayed the presents received by the wedded pair, but our pen shrinks from the task of properly describing the long catalogue of handsome and valuable gifts.  Sufficient it is to say that they were an expression of the position the young couple hold in the hearts of their friends.  Late in the evening the company dispersed, and shortly after Mr. and Mrs. Perry entered the carriage which was to convey them to their future home.  "Here beginneth the second chapter."  The ending shall be as auspicious as the commencement if the wishes and expectations of a legion of friends are to be realized.  With a heart-felt "God bless your!" we see our true-hearted friend and his sweet and womanly bride embark on the matrimonial sea.  For them may its waves be smoothed, and at last may they come into "that haven where they would be." Bon voyage.                                           WALT               July 14, 1877 (MU)

DILLAWAY, MARY A. - Matrimonial - Another of Troy's Daughters Stolen from her Home and Town - "Mr. & Mrs. L. F. Dillaway requests the pleasure of your company at the marriage of their daughter, Mary A. Dillaway to Rev. Calvin C. Herriott, Thursday morning, April 12th, at Eleven O'clock, Troy, Ohio, 1877."  The above invitations, issued a week ago announced the approaching marriage of Miss Mary, eldest daughter of our townsman, Mr. L. F. Dillaway, to Reverend Calvin C. Herriott, a Presbyterian Minister of St. Mary's which event was celebrated under the most auspicious circumstances last Thursday morning.  No bride ever had a lovlier day for her wedding.  Nature lent its aid to make happy the bridal day of one whose life has been so calm and true and pure; and the bright sunshine without warmed the atmosphere only at the light and joyous heart of the bride-elect, had warned the social atmosphere of her home, and was destined to make happy the new home soon to be entered.  At the appointed hour nearly two hundred guests were present, and the bridal party entered the parlor where the ceremony was to be performed.  Miss Anna M. Dillaway, sister of the bride, was bride's maid, and Mr. Louis Holden, of Alleghany City, Pa., cousin of the bride, was groomsman.  The ceremony was performed by Rev. A. W. Clokey, of the Presbyterian Church, assisted by Rev. Elcock, of Gallion, Ohio.  The bride was handsomely and yet modestly dressed.  She wore an elegant lead-colored silk, made demi-train, and with little trimmings.  A few orange blossoms in her hair were the only ornaments.  The ceremony over, and after the newly wedded couple had received the congratulations, first of their immediate friends and then of the remaining guests, they retired to the banquet table and the assembled guests were invited to partake of a sumptuous feast, which, not to particularize, was in every respect worthy the name of feast.  Among the guests present from a distance were Miss Archibald and Miss Nannie Funn, of Springfield; Mrs. Kate McCullough, Mrs. Gen. Murray, Mrs. Elliott, Mrs. Anna Lewis, and Miss Jennie Murray, of Sidney; Miss Herriott, sister of the groom of New Concord, Ohio; Rev. Mr. Brown and wife, Piqua.  Mrs. Herriott was the recipient of quite a number of very beautiful, and yet all useful presents, many of which came from her friends at a distance who were unable to be present at her nuptials.  A handsome and elaborately worked velvet pillow came from Miss Laura Woodin, of Romeo, Mich.  A couple of tastily wrought work boxes came from Mrs. Tenney, from New Hampshire, and a handsome little metallic bouquet-holder from the Misses Dinsmore, of Illinois; while from parties at home she received many neat articles of table ware, pictures, a handsome Bible from the clerks of the Crystal Palace, a very nice rocking chair from her late Sabbath School class and many other articles which will go to beautify her new home and ever remind her of the pleasant associations of girlhood and the happy wedding morn.  Mr. and Mrs. Herriott left on the afternoon of the same day for Alleghany City, Pa., where after a week's visit they return to Troy, and go thence to their future home in St. Marys.  They carry with them the best wishes of a large circle of friends that their wedded life may ever be one of happiness.  April 14, 1877 (MU)

Rev. C. C. and Mrs. Herriott nee Mary Dillaway, were tendered a reception at the home of Mr. and Mrs. O. Jay, in St. Marys, last week, which we learn from the Press of that town was an enjoyable affair. The bride, who had formerly taught in the schools of St. Marys, had many warm friends, who hastened to welcome her return. The Press further says: During the evening a party of musicians had been giving a concert to a very crowded audience at the hall and about ten our ears were greeted with a fine serenade, from the entire troupe, a family of ten. They politely accepted the invitation extended by the elders of the Church to join the company within, partook of refreshments and very materially assisted in the entertainment, by rendering vocal and instrumental music in a manner that showed them all to be musicians of a high order. This was followed by a congratulatory greeting in behalf of friends and citizens by Rev. Wymath who welcomed Rev. Herriott and lady in a warm and fraternal manner closing with a prayer of weight and solemnity. This was responded to in a happy speech by Rev. Herriott, who thanked all for the general welcome and tendered a general invitation for all to meet them in their new home, closing with a prayer that the blessing of God might attend all, that good might be done, all might terminate well that was begun under such pleasant auspices.  May 12, 1877 (MU)

FAIRFIELD, EMMA L.- Copied by request - The marriage of Mr. Henry M. Wiltse, of Chattanooga, Tenn., to Miss Emma L. Fairfield, last Thursday evening, was an occasion deserving more than a passing notice.  The elegant residence of W. S. Thomas, Esq., was the scene of this happy affair.  The bride was for some time in our community as a teacher in the Edwards School building, and is endeared to all who enjoyed her acquaintance.  Her father, who performed the solemn rite, is the Rev. Dr. E. B. Fairfield, President of the University of Nebraska, whose youth and early manhood were spent in Troy, and whose father the Rev. Macaiah Fairfield, edited the Miami Reporter, here some fifty years ago.  Mrs. Mary Fairfield, wife of Dr. Fairfield, and their little son, Ernest, were present; also Mr. Sumner Monroe, and his wife Mrs. Henrietta Monroe, of Xenia, O., and Mr. Ernest Burton of Kalamazoo, Mich.  The bride is a cousin of our townsman, W. S. Thomas, and the gathering at his residence was one of particular interest.  An elegant supper was served, and amid smiles and flowers and general happiness the wedding festivities were celebrated.  The happy party have departed on their wedding tour.--Free Press, July 12th.  July 14, 1877 (MU)

HERRIOTT, REV. CALVIN C. - Matrimonial - Another of Troy's Daughters Stolen from her Home and Town - "Mr. & Mrs. L. F. Dillaway requests the pleasure of your company at the marriage of their daughter, Mary A. Dillaway to Rev. Calvin C. Herriott, Thursday morning, April 12th, at Eleven O'clock, Troy, Ohio, 1877."  The above invitations, issued a week ago announced the approaching marriage of Miss Mary, eldest daughter of our townsman, Mr. L. F. Dillaway, to Reverend Calvin C. Herriott, a Presbyterian Minister of St. Mary's which event was celebrated under the most auspicious circumstances last Thursday morning.  No bride ever had a lovlier day for her wedding.  Nature lent its aid to make happy the bridal day of one whose life has been so calm and true and pure; and the bright sunshine without warmed the atmosphere only at the light and joyous heart of the bride-elect, had warned the social atmosphere of her home, and was destined to make happy the new home soon to be entered.  At the appointed hour nearly two hundred guests were present, and the bridal party entered the parlor where the ceremony was to be performed.  Miss Anna M. Dillaway, sister of the bride, was bride's maid, and Mr. Louis Holden, of Alleghany City, Pa., cousin of the bride, was groomsman.  The ceremony was performed by Rev. A. W. Clokey, of the Presbyterian Church, assisted by Rev. Elcock, of Gallion, Ohio.  The bride was handsomely and yet modestly dressed.  She wore an elegant lead-colored silk, made demi-train, and with little trimmings.  A few orange blossoms in her hair were the only ornaments.  The ceremony over, and after the newly wedded couple had received the congratulations, first of their immediate friends and then of the remaining guests, they retired to the banquet table and the assembled guests were invited to partake of a sumptuous feast, which, not to particularize, was in every respect worthy the name of feast.  Among the guests present from a distance were Miss Archibald and Miss Nannie Funn, of Springfield; Mrs. Kate McCullough, Mrs. Gen. Murray, Mrs. Elliott, Mrs. Anna Lewis, and Miss Jennie Murray, of Sidney; Miss Herriott, sister of the groom of New Concord, Ohio; Rev. Mr. Brown and wife, Piqua.  Mrs. Herriott was the recipient of quite a number of very beautiful, and yet all useful presents, many of which came from her friends at a distance who were unable to be present at her nuptials.  A handsome and elaborately worked velvet pillow came from Miss Laura Woodin, of Romeo, Mich.  A couple of tastily wrought work boxes came from Mrs. Tenney, from New Hampshire, and a handsome little metallic bouquet-holder from the Misses Dinsmore, of Illinois; while from parties at home she received many neat articles of table ware, pictures, a handsome Bible from the clerks of the Crystal Palace, a very nice rocking chair from her late Sabbath School class and many other articles which will go to beautify her new home and ever remind her of the pleasant associations of girlhood and the happy wedding morn.  Mr. and Mrs. Herriott left on the afternoon of the same day for Alleghany City, Pa., where after a week's visit they return to Troy, and go thence to their future home in St. Marys.  They carry with them the best wishes of a large circle of friends that their wedded life may ever be one of happiness.  April 14, 1877 (MU)

Rev. C. C. and Mrs. Herriott nee Mary Dillaway, were tendered a reception at the home of Mr. and Mrs. O. Jay, in St. Marys, last week, which we learn from the Press of that town was an enjoyable affair. The bride, who had formerly taught in the schools of St. Marys, had many warm friends, who hastened to welcome her return. The Press further says: During the evening a party of musicians had been giving a concert to a very crowded audience at the hall and about ten our ears were greeted with a fine serenade, from the entire troupe, a family of ten. They politely accepted the invitation extended by the elders of the Church to join the company within, partook of refreshments and very materially assisted in the entertainment, by rendering vocal and instrumental music in a manner that showed them all to be musicians of a high order. This was followed by a congratulatory greeting in behalf of friends and citizens by Rev. Wymath who welcomed Rev. Herriott and lady in a warm and fraternal manner closing with a prayer of weight and solemnity. This was responded to in a happy speech by Rev. Herriott, who thanked all for the general welcome and tendered a general invitation for all to meet them in their new home, closing with a prayer that the blessing of God might attend all, that good might be done, all might terminate well that was begun under such pleasant auspices.  May 12, 1877 (MU)

PERRY, NATHAN C. - Orange Blossoms - A Brilliant Wedding in the Border City - One of Piqua's Fair Daughters Stolen by a Trojan Gallant - In St. James Protestant Episcopal Church, in Piqua, O., on Tuesday evening, July 10th, 1877, by Rev. H. L. Badger, Mr. Nathan C. Perry, of Troy, and Hattie C., daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hiram Brooks, of Piqua.  The rival cities have joined hands, albeit a slight grudge exists on the part of Piqua that the "Center" should have robbed it of one of its choicest treasures.  St. James Church was crowded to its utmost capacity on Tuesday evening, but the perfect arrangements for the occasion, made under the direction of Mrs. Harlow, prevented inconvenience.  The front portion of the church was reserved for the invited guests, who were ushered to their seats by Messrs. John Daniels and Emory Sawyer and Dr. Chas. Davies.  The gallery and the rear portion of the auditorium was filled by an interested audience, whose good-natured and curious whisperings and comments on the handsome decorations of the altar were suddenly hushed, as the officiating clergyman, Mr. Badger, appeared in his robes.  Then as the keys of the grand organ responded to the pressure of Miss Laura Schafer's skillful fingers, in the notes of Mendelssohn's Wedding March, the doors were thrown open and the bridal party entered.  First walked the ushers, then the attendants, Mr. Amos H. Sawyer, of Piqua, and Miss Lilly Perry, of Greenville, and Mr. D. McCullough, of Troy, and Miss Laura Friedlich, of Piqua, and finally came the pair soon to be made one in the sight of God and man.  The beautiful ceremony of the Episcopal Church was performed and as husband and wife the pair retraced their steps to the front entrance, where carriages were in waiting to convey them and the invited guests to the residence of the bride's parents.  Arriving there we found the bridal party engaged in receiving the congratulations of the friends who crowded the parlors.  In another room the parents of the bride were receiving congratulations, while they gazed proudly but sorrowfully on their daughter, in a few short hours to be taken from them, and ever and anon as if for consolation, their eyes sought the spot where the daughter still left to them stood entertaining guests.  Though their home circle may have a vacant chair, yet have the parents still a home treasure, a bud soon to mature into a charming and noble womanhood.  But a short time sufficed to banish formality, and social enjoyment was soon at its height.  "Fayre women and brayve men" from Piqua, Troy and other cities, mingled together, and in laughter and merriment the hours flew by.  We noticed among those present and apparently enjoying the evening with great zest, Mr. W. C. Brooks, of Van Wert, and Miss Emma Brooks, Mr. Geo. Perry, of Greenville, Mr. Jacob A. Friedlich, of Cincinnati, Miss Hattie Martin, Miss Ella Spiker, Miss Minnie Friedlich, Mrs. Kate Harlow, Mr. Jas. Johnston, Dr. C. H. Davies, Mr. and Mrs. John W. Stafford, Mr. Willis Hall, Mr. Walter D. Jones, Mr. John Daniels, Mr. Samuel Davis, Mr. E. F. Sawyer, Mr. A. H. Sawyer, Dr. and Mrs. C. S. Parker, Mr. and Mrs. A. Friedlich, Mr. E. Friedlich, Mr. J. G. Patterson and lady, Mr. T. M. Crow, Mr. J. L. Carson, Dr. and Mrs. G. V. Dorsey, and many others from Piqua; Mr. Robt. D. L. Ball, of Keeve, N. H., and Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Baker, Mr. and Mrs. G. T. Thomas, Mr. and Mrs. W. A. R. Tenney, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. T. Riley, Mr. and Mrs. John Rodgers, Mr. and Mrs. George Thompson, Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Friedlich, Misses Lutie Morris, Sally Kyle, Seba Wagner, Clara Gibbs, Lou Parson, Ella Janvier, Mattie Dye, Jessie Coleman, Lillie Senour, Lida Kramer, Messrs. L. H. Thompson, John Stillwell, L. L. Defrees, Chas. Ross, Nick Kramer, John Senour, Tom Kyle, Tom Gibbs, Luther Snyder, Ed Kyle, Tom Gibbs, Luther Snyder, Ed Wasserman, W. Becker, Rob Parsons, of Troy; Mr. and Mrs. Bowman, Mrs. and Mrs. John Booher, of Tippecanoe City.  Many stylish and handsome costumes were visible, and we give a description of the dresses of the bridal party, in which description we are assisted by a lady friend: Bride's dress, sea foam silk, made Princesse, trimmed with point lace and orange blossoms.  First Bridesmaid (Miss Lilly Perry), Lavender silk with white tarleton overdress, garniture of geranium leaves.  Second Bridesmaid, (Miss Laura Friedlich), white dotted Swiss, trimmed with daisies.  In one of the rooms were displayed the presents received by the wedded pair, but our pen shrinks from the task of properly describing the long catalogue of handsome and valuable gifts.  Sufficient it is to say that they were an expression of the position the young couple hold in the hearts of their friends.  Late in the evening the company dispersed, and shortly after Mr. and Mrs. Perry entered the carriage which was to convey them to their future home.  "Here beginneth the second chapter."  The ending shall be as auspicious as the commencement if the wishes and expectations of a legion of friends are to be realized.  With a heart-felt "God bless your!" we see our true-hearted friend and his sweet and womanly bride embark on the matrimonial sea.  For them may its waves be smoothed, and at last may they come into "that haven where they would be." Bon voyage.       WALT       July 14, 1877 (MU)  Note: Court Records show Nathan, but MU has Nate
