Notable Marriage, in Mississippi
Tuesday evening, November 17, 1885, by Rev. Dr. Short, at St. Andrew’s church, Jackson, Miss., Mr. Graham Tindall, and Miss Mai Bird Hilzheim, of Jackson, Miss., were united in marriage. Mr. and Mrs. Tindall have reached their future home and are domiciled at the McGee Hotel.
The State Ledger, of Jackson, gives a glowing account of the marriage, from which we extract as follows:
“The attendants were: Hyman Hilzheim and Miss Mamie Robinson, Edward Yerger and Miss Ida Mitchell; Richard McWillie and Miss Annie Henry; O. B. Hilzheim and Nellie Fariss; John Robison and Miss Nannie Campbell. Ushers—Marion Smith, Geo. Hunter, Harry Lee and Alex. Virden.
“This wedding put our city on the qui vive of interest and expectancy and a dense crowd had occupied the church long ere the happy couple came to be made one. The friends and admirers of the bride embraced nearly everybody at the Capital, and many, not standing upon the conventionality of an invitation, when the etiquette of cards was imposed, by an irresistible impulse, hurried to the church to witness the ceremony which was to change the name of one of the loveliest and most beautiful girls in all the length and breadth of Mississippi. Joyous throngs hastened to the church with eager hearts, in the silvery light of the moon, suspiciously ornamenting the brow of night, beating in harmony with the glad cadence of the hymenial bells. At length she appeared with the dreamy step of the sylph, beautiful in the habiliments of the bride as the soft azure of tropic skies spangled with innumerable stars.
“She looked indeed a miracle of exquisite creation, attracting with the witchery of enchantment. In form and feature, in grace and modesty, she was all that the old masters have pictured the divine Madonna or that ever warmed the fancy of the artist in visions of woman’s beauty. The gorgeous colorings of the orient with which the radiant imagination of Tom Moore clothes the characters of his poetry are not more like spirits of heaven than she, in the jewels and superb dress and drapery that comingled to adorn her, she was herself, in the glow of her matchless eyes and the divinity of her mein, a constellation of them all.
“She was dressed in white surah satin elaborately trimmed with chenille fringe and embroidered tulle, with elegant diamonds.
“The handsome groom who was elegantly attired, is a native Mississippian, but now a successful druggist of Huntsville, Ala., is a most exemplary gentleman, and will in every way prove worthy of the bride he has won.”
