Alice Marian Monroe and Ansel W. Brown

     Married in Baldwinsville, N. Y., May 2, 1894, at the residence of the bride's parents,
by Rev. E. A. McMaster, of the First Presbyterian church of Baldwinsville, Mr. Ansel W.
Brown, of Pulaski, N. Y., and Alice Marian Monroe, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. C.
     We condense the following account of the glad occasion from the Baldwinsville
Gazette: "Only relatives and immediate friends were present. Miss Laura E. Baldwin
presided at the organ and shortly after seven o'clock the bridal party entered the parlor to
the music of Lohengrin's wedding march. The ceremony was most impressively
preformed by Rev. Edward A. McMaster, pastor of the First Presbyterian church of this
village, after which the bride and groom received the congratulations of the guests. A
substantial wedding supper was served and Mr. and Mrs. Brown left on the 9:23 train for
Oswego, going thence to Watertown to visit relatives of the groom. They will reside in
Pulaski. Of course there were many wedding gifts, but these only in small degree testified
to the friendship of the donors. Among the out of town guests were John N. Carlisle and
wife, of Watertown; D. C. Monroe and wife, Mrs. Candace C. Brown and Edmund
Brown, of Pulaski; O. A. Rodgers and wife, Fremont Champlain and wife and George
Champlain and wife, of Syracuse.
     The bride is one of Baldwinsville fairest young ladies, while the groom is in every way
worthy the charming bride he has won. Mr. and Mrs. Brown enter upon their new life
with brilliant prospects, and that they may love long and be happy is the wish of every
friend, including The Gazette." And in all these good wishes and congratulations the
publisher of the Pulaski Democrat most heartily concurs.
