Buckingham County: Weddings

One hundred years ago, December weddings were extremely popular. On January 4, 1905, the Appomattox and Buckingham Times printed the following about a Buckingham County union:

Alcoma.

Davison-Rosin

                Miss Anne B. Rosin and Mr. R. T. Davidson, were quietly married at the bride’s home, “Oakland,” on December 18, [1904]. Rev. W. E. Bullard officiated. Mrs. R. I. Morgan was matron of honor and Mr. R. I. Morgan was best man. The parlor was beautifully decorated with holly, ferns and juniper. Mr. and Mrs. Davidson took the C. & O. train at Dillwyn for their new home in Ashland. Attendants were as follows: Miss Bessie Rosin and Mr. Humphrey Steger, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Morgan, Mr. Charles Rosin, Mr. D. M. Word, Mrs. Shellie Saunders and Mr. Irby Saunders.

                Mr. C. R. Rosin has just returned from the Valley of Virginia where he received a good price for his cattle and his old friends were very glad to see him.
