Wedding Wednesday - Perkins and Carlisle

Among the loose newspaper clippings from the Literature Scrap Book I found is this wedding announcement.  It's on the reverse side of an article about "Charlie Chan's Papa".

Unfortunately I can't tell you which newspaper this was printed in, but I believe it was one from the New London, New Hampshire area.

   "A wedding of interest was that yesterday at New London of Miss Deborah Perkins, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Grafton B. Perkins of Cambridge, to Mr. James Mandeville Carlisle, son of Mrs. Joseph Fauntleroy Barnes of Fort Bragg, N C, and the late Mr. James Mandeville Carlisle of Washington."

I was able to find their marriage record on so that gives us a little more info about the couple.
