Married in Haste

Roanoke Beacon – 20 Jun 1899

On Friday evening shortly after six o’clock, Mr. James COLLINS and Miss Hattie WILLIAMS of Roper, drove into our town and stopped at the residence of Mr. S.W. BEASLEY, announcing as they entered that they were going to be married.  A messenger soon returned with the license and Justice J.P. HILLIARD, and the ceremony was hurriedly performed making them man and wife.  

The bride is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H.J. WILLIAMS, of Roper, and one of the acknowledged belles of Washington county.  The groom is one of the most popular of Washington county boys, and holds a responsbile position with the Roper Lumber Co., at Belhaven, to which place they returned on Saturday to make their future home.  

The Beacon extends happy congratulations and best wishes for future happiness.  While they were “married in haste,” may they never repent, even at leisure.
