Miss Lillian Pearle Teeter Becomes he Bride of Mr. Walter McGrady

At the hour of 10 o’clock last Sunday morning, at the home of the bride in No. 9 township, Miss Lillian Pearle Teeter became the bride of Mr. Walter M. McGrady. It was a simple and beautiful home wedding. Miss Amy Fisher, classmate of Miss Teeter, presided at the piano. Rev. R. A. Goodman, principal of Mont Amoena Seminary, spoke the ceremony. Miss Ollie Teeter was bridesmaid and the bride was given away by her brother, Mr. Frank Teeter, Mr. McGrady was attended by his friend, Mr. Clarence A. Rye of Washington.

Miss Teeter is the eldest daughter of Mr. John H. Teeter one of No. 9’s best farmers. She is a young lady of splendid character and that happy disposition which makes a good life companion. She graduated at Mont Amoena Seminary Mount Pleasant, with the class of 1919. Her classmates and many friends rejoice with her in the happy auspices of her wedding.

Mr. McGrady was reared near Mooresville, N. C. After  graduating from Mars Hill College, he attended Trinity. While a student at Trinity, he roomed with Miss Teeter’s brother, Mr. Horace Teeter. A vacation visit to the home of his college chum began the courtship which has so happily climaxed. After college Mr. McGrady was associated with the Southern Power Company at Charlotte. During his stay in that city he was social secretary of the Y. M. C. A. and member of Tryon Street M. E. Church. On the outbreak of the war he was assigned to the Central Officers’ Training School, Camp Lee. After the armistice Mr. McGrady became connected with the Treasury Department, Washington, which position he still retains. Besides this work he has other business connections. The groom is a man of fine qualities and has many friends in this part of the State, who wish him continued success and happiness.

After the ceremony the bridal party motored to Concord, where the bride and groom, accompanied by Mr. Rye, left for Washington. After a few days they will be at home to their friends in Apartment 207, The Alabama, Washington, D. C.

Besides the immediate family attending the marriage, were Chief C. A. Robinson, Mr. and Mrs. Fisher, Dr. and Mrs. W. R. Fisher, and Mr. Peck, all of Concord.
