Hodges-Hightower Wedding 1923

The Bee (Danville, Virginia) 23 June 1923 (Page 8)


A pretty wedding was solemnized on Monday at nine o'clock at Prospect Hill, Caswell County, when Miss Clara Mabel Hightower, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Hightower, was married to Howard Price Hodges, formerly of Caswell but now of Washington, D.C. The ceremony was performed by Rev. S. F. Nix at the home of the bride. Miss Mary Hightower, sister of the bride, was maid of honor, and Herbert Hodges, brother of the groom, was best man. Little Edith Wilkerson [probably Edith Cooper Wilkinson] was the ring bearer, preceding the bridal party to the altar before which the ceremony was preformed. Miss Myrtle Wilkerson [probably Eva Myrtle Wilkinson] played the wedding marches, Miss Lulu Compton singing, "At Dawning" and "I Love You Truly." A reception followed the wedding, after which the bride and groom left for Atlantic City and other northern cities, where they will spend their honeymoon before taking up residence in Washington, where the groom is connected with the Baltimore and Ohio Railway company.

Howard Price Hodges (1895-1979) is the son of Walter Smith and Lucy N. Hodges.

Mabel Clara Hightower (1895-1975) is the daughter of John Stephen Hightower (1855-1928) and Della Susan Smith (d. 1915).
