      Newspaper Article - Wednesday, March 16, 1904 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - SpinIc - Gurley - On Thursday, March 10th. at 1:30 o'clock, in the presence of fifty guests or more, occurred the marriage of Miss Clare M. Gurley to Mr. Melzer M. Spink, at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Stephen M. Gurley, on Park street. The house was prettily decorated with asparagus ferns, cut flowers and potted plants. The dining room was festooned with white crêpe paper around which asparagus ferns were twined, making a very pleasing effect and was the handiwork of Mrs. W. J. Peach. At the strains of a wedding march played by Miss Eva Lyman, of Adams, the bridal couple entered the parlors and stood under an arch decorated with green and a gilded horseshoe and were joined in holy wedlock by Rev. A. I. Ehle, pastor of the Baptist church. The bride was becomingly dressed in a white cashmere gown trimmed with allover lace and appliqué and caned a bouquet of white carnations. After congratulations were extended a delicious wedding supper was served at which Mr. and Mrs. C. L. Bonney, Mr. and Mrs. F. T. Bonney, Miss Ruby Butterworth, Miss Maud Conant, F. P. Hardy and Frank Brundage so pleasantly assisted. The wedding gifts were a willow rocker, a dining table and chairs, a decorated dinner and tea set, a water set, a toilet set, a white enameled bedstead, two dozen silver spoons, silver ladle, cut glass dish, berry spoons, two meat forks, two bedspreads, towel, lace handkerchief, tablecloth and napkins, a handsome celery dish, two salad dishes, two cake baskets, two doilies, silver crumb dish, Smyrna rug, book of poems, lamp, cash $11, cut flowers, ferns and an anonymous gift which caused much merriment. Mr. and Mrs. M. M. Spink took the evening train for Syracuse amid the showers of rice from their friends, the bride being attired in a blue traveling gown.
