168 Rev. Lyman Pierson Powell, of Lansdowne, and Miss Mary Gertrude Wilson, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. F.S. Wilson, of Jenkintown, were united in marriage Tuesday at high noon in the Church of Our Saviour, Jenkintown. The ceremony was performed by Bishop O.W. Whitaker, of Philadelphia, and Rev. Roberts Coles, of Jenkintown, and the beautiful little church was filled with the friends of both bride and groom who came to witness the ceremony.
Charles F. Murphy, Jr., organist, while the guests were assembling and during the service rendered: "Meistersingers of Nuremberg," Richard Wagner; march; Walther's Prize Song; "Hochzeitsmusik," op. 45, Adolph Jensen; wedding march; bridal song; "Spring Song," Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy; introduction to third act and bridal chorus from "Lohengrin," Richard Wagner; Notturno and wedding march from "Midsummer Night's Dream" music, Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy.
Promptly at 12 o'clock the wedding party arrived and the groom awaited the bride at the altar. The bride came up the aisle leaning on the arm of her father, followed by maid of honor, bridesmaids and ushers. The audience arose and remained standing during the ceremony and until the wedding party had filed out. The service was a most beautiful and impressive one and as each affirmed to the sacred vows the words could be distinctly heard over the church. The pledge of the ceremony was repeated and the bride came down the aisle of the church leaning on the arm of her husband.
The best man was Mr. Talcott Williams, city editor of the Philadelphia Press, and Miss Stella J. Wilson, sister of the bride, was maid of honor. Miss Grace Woodin, Springfield, Mass., and Miss Edith LaRue Jones, of Germantown, were bridesmaids. The bridesmaids and maid of honor wore white swiss, trimmed with lace, and carried bouquets of white carnations and asparagus. The bride was handsomely gowned in white silk, trimmed with chiffon and point appliqué lace. She had no flowers, but carried a white prayer book.
The ushers were Dr. Albert Shaw, editor of Review of Reviews, Hastings-on-Hudson, N.Y.; Rev. H.R. Hulse, rector of St. Mary's, New York; Mr. H.A. Moore, rector's warden, Lansdowne; Mr. John J. Houghton, Ambler; Rev. John S. Banting Christ's church, Christina, Delaware; Prof. F.W. Speirs, Philadelphia.
After the ceremony a handsome wedding breakfast was served the bridal party and a few friends at the home of the bride's parents. Rev. and Mrs. Powell left shortly before 2 o'clock for a short wedding trip, and on their return will be at Lansdowne after Sept. 15.
Rev. Powell, the groom, is well known in Ambler, where he was pastor of Trinity mission before assuming his present charge at Lansdowne. He was graduated from Johns Hopkins university and has been engaged in university extension and literary work much of his time since. He is the author of several works of merit and has done much reviewing for the magazines.
The bride was graduated from Sunnyside school, Ambler, in 1889, and then prepared for Wellesley college at the Walnut Lane school, Germantown. In 1895 she received her degree from Wellesley and accepted the professorship of history at the Willard preparatory school, Troy, N.Y.
The many friends of both the bride and groom and the "Gazette" wish them a happy and prosperous voyage on life's journey.

195 The City Cemetery at South Bend, Indiana, has a very elaborate monument dedicated to Reynolds Dunn and his family. The gravestone is a tall white marble column topped with a small urn resting on a plinth of the same material. The soft marble is slowly being eaten away by the elements, eroding the detail of the wording and the carvings on the market.
On what appears to be the back side of the marker is a cartouche. Inside that is the name Phebe Dunn, wife of Reynolds Dunn, along with her date of death and her age, though her age is so badly faded and illegible. The side of the plinth has two names carved into it—presumably children of Reynolds and Phebe—Simeon and Jennette, along with birth and death years. The front side is an elaborately carved tribute to Reynolds Dunn.
