Bedford, Indiana – The Catholic Church in this place was crowded Wednesday evening to witness the marriage of Mr. James Leighton and Miss Ellen O'Connell. The bride is one of our most accomplished and talented teachers, and Mr. Leighton holds a responsible position in the employment of the Hinsdale-Doyle Granite Company. At a reception held at the residence of Mr. M. O'Connell, the bride's father, after the ceremony, she was the recipient of a large number of costly and beautiful presents.
