Shearrer-Williams married 11 Dec 1924

This was my grandparent's marriage announcement that was placed in The Banner newspaper.

Mr. Edgar Shearrer and Miss Ima Williams, two popular young people of this city were united in holy wedlock on Thursday night of this week, Rev. J.W. Yow performing the ceremony at his home in the presence of only members of the family of the contracting parties.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G.W. Williams, living near Poteet and is a young lady of most charming graces and beloved by all who know her. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. D.E. Shearrer of this city and is a most worthy young man and highly esteemed.

After the ceremony the happy young couple left for Austin where they spent a few days, and will shortly be at home to their friends in the Munson Cottage on Prospect Hill, which Mr. Shearrer recently purchased.

The Banner joins with their many friends in extending congratulations and best wishes for a long and happy journey on the matrimonial sea.
