April 26, 1899
Last Wednesday afternoon Miss Anna Lee, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Lee, of West Monroe, was married to Mr. H. R. Speed. The affair was a very quiet one, on account of the brides’s family being in mourning. The groom is an energetic young business man of Monroe, a member of the insurance firm of L. D. McLain & Co. The bride is a native of Union Parish and for the past few year has been a popular and charming society belle of Monroe. She has a host of friends in our locality who will join The Gazette in extending Mr. and Mrs. Speed best wishes for a happy and prosperous life. After the ceremony the happy couple left for a bridal trip to the West.
