Williams - King Wedding

The marriage of Winifred, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John W. Williams, of Bishop's Cove, and Patrick, son of Mr. and Mrs. Patrick J. King, was solemnized in St. Patrick's Church at 5 p.m. on Saturday, January 25th by Rt. Rev. Monsignor J. W. Peddle, with Frank Thistle, brother-in-law of the groom as father-giver. The bride wore a floor length gown of brocaded nylon lace over slipper satin with fingertip veil, held in place by a pearl studded coronet. She carried a bouquet of pink and white roses and was attended by Miss Mary Margaret King, cousin of the groom, who was gowned in a ballerina length dress of pink brocaded nylon over satin. A fingertip veil and bouquet of roses completed her ensemble. The groom was supported by his brother, James King. Following the ceremony, which was witnessed by many relatives and friends, a reception was held at the home of the groom's parents, while later there was one at the home of the bride's parents. The three-tier wedding cake was made and decorated by the bride's aunt, Mrs. Rose Adams of Bishop's Cove. The toast to the bride was proposed by Mrs. E. F. Adams, to which the groom made suitable reply. Two hundred guests attended the wedding and the large array of gifts testify to the popularity of the young couple. Out of town guests included the bride's parents, her grandmother, Mrs. Rachel Peddle, Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Smith, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Barrett, Mrs. E. F. Adams of Bishop's Cove, Miss Druscilla Williams and Mr. and Mrs. Patrick King of St. John's, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Collins and Mr. and Mrs. Fred Neal, Spaniard's Bay, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Short, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Short, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas King, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Fahey, Mr. and Mrs. Tim Fahey, Mr. and Mrs. Martin White, Mr. and Mrs. John Short, Misses Marie and Mercedes King and Messrs.

Spaniard's Bay, February 4 -
Mr. Moses Gosse
, 74, passed away at his home at Tilton on Saturday evening, February 1. Deceased had been in failing health for some months.
Moses Gosse will be remembered by many of the older men who worked in the iron ore surface pits and later the mines at Bell Island from just after the turn of the century up to the early thirties. Like his contemporaries he worked hard and long for little pay, but he always stuck to his job even if it meant crossing Conception Bay with others in a small punt, in darkness and in light, in calm and in tempest, in summer and in winter.
His funeral was held on Monday with the service at All Saints' Church and at the graveside being conducted by the rector, Rev. Canon T. E. Loder.
To his widow, his son Frederick, his daughters, Lillian (Mrs. Crane of Tilton) and Pearl (Mrs. Thorne) of New Harbour), we offer our sincere sympathy.
