Grandma Wright's Wedding Dress

The Alexandrian, Alexandria, Indiana, July 1, 1986


Home Tour - Gloria LeMaster, right, presided over the front parlor of the Scott-Malone Place Thursday.  Her grandmother Wright's wedding dress and license were on display, commemorating the fact that while the home was owned by the First Christian Church, numerous couples such as the Wrights were married in the front parlor.  Gloria's two aunts, Clara Ellen High and Barbara Webster, visited the home, now owned by John and Marsha Madden, during the benefit tour sponsored by the Alexandria-Monroe Historical Society.

This article was from a collection of newspaper clippings that my parents have saved for their "Indiana Room" at their home.  My grandparents, Virgil Lee WRIGHT and Edna Muriel "Peach" PIERCE, were married June 15, 1915 in Alexandria, Madison County, Indiana.
