A wedding which came as a surprise
to the people was that of Miss Essye
Woodfin and Mr. J. B. Heflin, which
occured on Sunday evening, Dec. 20,
1910, at the home of the bride's parents,
Mr. and Mrs. John B. Woodfin, Rev.
Carman officiating. The attendants
were Misses Elsio Woodfin, Allie Heflin,
and Messrs. Wayne Mansfield and Den
nis Tayne. Only a few of the most
intimate friends of the bride were pres
ent. While it was known to Miss
Woodfin's family that the marriage
would occur in the spring they were
surprised to learn that she had consented
to have the ceremony performed during
her visit to homefolks.
She returned on January 1 to her
school south of Martin. The people
there think Miss Essye a good teacher
and could not afford to give her up.
