The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, February 28, 1907

The home of MR. JOHN E. WAUGH, in Chariton was last night the scene of a
sweet and impressive double wedding. The contracting couples were MR. JOHN
ZOIRELDA WAUGH, daughter of MR. WAUGH, of Chariton.

The ceremony was performed by C.F. Ward, Minister for the Christian Church
of Boone, formerly Minister for the Chariton Christian Church. A beautiful
double ring service was used. Promptly at eight o'clock the wedding march
by Mendelsshon was played by Miss Ella Lundgren and the two couples preceded
by the officiating minister, came into the parlor, where were awaiting them
about sixty relatives and invited guests. After the ceremony and
congratulations, light refreshments were served.

All four of the contracting parties are well and favorably known here. MR.
WAUGH is the proprietor of the Chariton Bottling Works and has by industry
and courteous dealing secured a fine patronage all over southern Iowa. MR.
LUNDGREN has been associated with Johnson & Best contractors. Both MISS
LUNDGREN and MISS WAUGH are accomplished Christian young women and have a
host of friends.

MISS LUNDGREN at the wedding wore a dress of white silk mull over pink silk
and MISS WAUGH a dress of white silk over cream taffeta. Both carried
brides' roses. The grooms wore the conventional black. These newly married
people will continue to live in Chariton and their large number of friends
join in wishing them a long wedded life of happiness and usefulness.
