    • Newspaper Article - Tuesday, September 3, 1918 Syracuse Journal - Service Flag For Bride's Brother Only Decoration - A very quiet wedding took place Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock at the Furman Street Methodist Church when Miss Betha Harriette Wright, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. O. Wright of 119 W. Raynor av., became the bride of Frank William Everett of Rochester. The church decorations consisted only of a service flag in honor of the bride's brother, Dexter H. Wright, who is with the A. E. F. in France. This flag contains the chevron donoting voluntary enlistement, the gold chevron for six months service over seas, the gold circle donoting distinguished service, and the gold cross indicating that Mr. Wright has been wounded. The bride was given in marriage by her father and wore a travelling suit of dark blue serge and picture hat of blue panne velvet and a corsage bouquet of bride's roses. She was attended by Mrs. E. Victor Underwood of Oswego as matron of honor and Miss Edith Rill of Parish as bridesmaid. Mr. Everett was attended by E. Victor Underwoo of Oswego as best man and Clyde Devendorf of Central Square and Tracy Killman of Pulaski acted as ushers. The bridal party entered the church to the strains of Lohengrin's wedding march, played by Miss Marjorie Willard, organist of Furman Street M. E. Church. Only the families and most intimate friends of the bride and groom attended. About 100 guests were present. Mr. and Mrs. Everett will be at home at 88 Adam st., Rochester, after an extended wedding trip through the Adirondacks and the Thousand Islands. Mrs. Everett was formerly teacher in the prepartory schools of Syracuse. Mr. Everett is an adjuster for the Aetna Life Insurance Co., with headquarters in Rochester. The Rev. Dr. H. H. Downey , pastor of the Furman Street M. E. Church performed the ceremony.
