(Special to The State)
Pomaria, Jan. 21. – The marriage of Miss Olive Iola Folk to Albert E. Gibert of Abbeville was solemnized Thursday at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. William H. Folk of the Broad river section of the county. The bride’s pastor, the Rev. J. B. Haigler of the Pomaria Lutheran pastorate, officiated in the presence of a number of invited guests.

The bride is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Folk. After attending school at Mont Amoena seminary she returned to become an untiring worker in her home church and community, where she was loved by all who know her. She wore a handsome tailored suit of poiret twill with accessories to match.

The groom is the son of James Gibert of Abbeville and hods a responsible position with the Seaboard Air Line railway in his home town.

After the ceremony the 75 guests were served an elaborate dinner, typical of this hospitable home. One of the features of the table was a number of cakes beautifully decorated by the mother of the bride.

The bride and bridegroom did not hold the entire attention and honors of the day, as this was the 35th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Folk. There were several present on this as well as the other occasion.

Besides those present from the county were: R. D. Walker, Dr. and Mrs. Robert H. Folk, Miss Minnie Abrams, Richard and Francis Walker of Columbia; James Gibert, Misses Louise and Catherine Gibert and Walter Wilson of Abbeville.

Mr. and Mrs. Gibert left on the afternoon train for their home in Abbeville.
