S-Sgt. J.C. Carlton and Miss Annette Powell Were Wedded Sunday
At the home of the bride at 1 o’clock Sunday afternoon, S-Sgt. J.C. Carlton and Miss Annette Powell were united in marriage by Rev. A.S. Eggner, former pastor of the Methodist church.
After the ceremony the young couple left for Konawa where Mrs. Carlton is teacher of home economics in the schools.
The ceremony was the double ring. Miss Margie Sue Powell, a sister of the bride, played the Mendelssohn wedding march.
Misses Elmer and Jean Maddux, cousins of the bride of Durant, in a duet, sang “I Love You Truly”.
The bride wore a dusty rose afternoon dress with black accessories, a corsage of orchids, and for “something old” wore a gold brooch that was worn by her great-grandmother at her wedding.
For a borrowed article the bride borrowed a handkerchief from Miss Myra Jean Guthrie.
The car in which the newlyweds escaped to Konawa was bedecked with old shoes, appropriate signs and a plentiful supply of rice.
Mrs. Carlton is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hatsel Powell, was a graduate of Caddo High School and A.& M. College, Stillwater. She is now home economics instructor in Konawa schools.
Sgt. Carlton is the son of Jim Carlton of Caddo, is a graduate of Caddo schools, and enlisted in the Army, was a gunner on an airplane and was wounded in North Africa January 8, last year. He is yet under care of the hospital of the army at Longview.
When he is able to resume duty he probably will be used as an air instructor in the army.
Relatives and close friends who attended the wedding were: Jim C. Carlton, Mr. and Mrs. Hatsel Powell, Margie Sue, Julia Belle and Hatsene Powell, Miss Myra Jean Guthrie, Mr. and Mrs. Glynn Martin, Mr. and Mrs. George Frazier, Mrs. Elmer Maddux and daughters Jean and Dorothy of Durant.
Refreshments were served to the guests by Mrs. Glynn Martin, Margie Sue, Julia Belle, and Hatsene Powell.
The host of friends of these fine young people wish them every joy that life may hold.
