Wedding at High Noon – Marriage Ceremony Today at Walkersville – Miss Bertha Heberly the Bride – Minister of the United Brethren Church and Well-known Speaker Becomes the Wife of a Prominent Ohio Lawyer
Miss Bertha M. HEBERLY and Mr. John Carney MYERS, of Miamisburg, Ohio, were married at high noon today at the bride’s home at Walkersville, this county.
The ceremony was performed by the bride’s father, Rev. M. J. HEBERLY, pastor of the Walkersville United Brethren charge, assisted by Rev. Dr. O. T. STERN, of York, Pa. She was attended by her sister, Mrs. J. K. MILLER of York, Pa., who acted as matron of honor. The latter’s little son, Master Raymond Heberly MILLER, was flower boy. Mr. Harry HEBERLY, brother of the bride, was best man. The bride wore a pretty gown of white silk mull.
The bride, who is a regularly ordained minister of the United Brethren church, is well known as a preacher and a temperance and missionary worker. Although she has never had a regular charge, she has frequently preached for congregations served by her father as pastor, and on numerous occasions has addressed religious gatherings of various kinds and meetings held to the interest of the cause of temperance.
The groom is a prominent lawyer of Miamisburg and a member of the Ohio House of Representatives.
This afternoon the bride and groom drove to Frederick and took a train to Washington, DC. After visiting New York and other cities they will go to Miamisburg where a reception will be given in their honor.
