At the residence of Mrs. Laura Carroll Wednesday afternoon at 5:15, Rev. Frank Naylor united in marriage Lieutenant Harry Haigh and Miss Ethel Boydstun. The newlyweds left on the six o’clock train for Oklahoma City to spend Thanksgiving, to return here Friday for a few days, after which they will leave for Chicago to make their home.
The ceremony was witnessed by Mrs. Carroll, Misses Collier, Turk and Ernestine Carroll, Mr. and Mrs. George A. Boydstun, Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Evans, Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Crossett and daughter Janice, Mrs. Virgil Slack, Mrs. Bryant, and Stanton Carroll, and Mrs. C. W. Jones.
Lieutenant Haigh belongs to the U.S. army engineers, served nearly three years in France, was wounded near the time of the Armistice and was invalided home. He is a native of Illinois and is a splendid type of American manhood. It was while convalescing in a hospital that he met his bride, a romance quickly sprang up, ripening into mutual love. They intended to be married Christmas, but upon his visit here they decided to get married at once.
Lieutenant Haigh was decorated in France for extraordinary bravery in rescuing a comrade in danger.
Mrs. Haigh is the daughter of George Boydstun, is a young woman of rare attainments, has taught in the schools of Oklahoma for several years, also taking post graduate work. During the war she entered the army hospital service, devoting her time and talents to relieving the wounded. At the time of her marriage she was teacher in the High School, being a valued member of the faculty, being loved by her pupils and trusted by her superiors. She is a lovely young woman, a suitable companion for her mate, and she has hosts of friends here who wish her every happiness.
