PAGE 34, the 3rd consecutive page of Wedding Cards/Notices

As noted in previous pages, this blog is for the purpose of inventorying every page in my maternal great-grandfather's TERWILLIGER SOUVENIR ALBUM, covering the years from 1840-1900 or so.

See Page 32  & Page 33 for the other pages of 4 consecutive pages of wedding cards and notices. While Page 32 contained items for our TERWILLIGER & GRAVES family members, the next pages seem to be primarily of their friends.

Page 34 continues with wedding invitations, wedding cards and notices of the newly married couples' names and new addresses. I am posting details in vertical rows, starting from the top left side.
