    Notes 
    • From Brooklyn Eagle:

      Glen Cove LI - Sept 30 - Yesterday afternoon at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. William H Coles, Forest avenue, their eldest daughter, Miss Sarah Amelia Coles, was married to George Carl Draegert of Buffalo. The house was decorated with autumn flowers, asters, golden rod and woodbine, with vases of cut flowers. The bridal party was attended by ushers, Walter Campbell and John Hewlett Coles, and they entered the parlor to the strains of Lohengrin's "Wedding March," pausing under an arch of golden rod, where Rev. F. Smock read the marriage services of the Congregational church. The bride wore a traveling gown and carried a bouquet of white roses and maiden hair fern. After the young couple received the congratulations of their friends, a collation was served in the diningroom, and then they took their departure for their future home in Buffalo.

      From Times Union:

      Dragheart Coles

      Miss Amelia Coles was married to George C. Dragheart, of Buffalo, N. Y yesterday at 12:30 P. M., by the Rev. Dr, Smock, of Locust Valley.

      The ceremony was performed at the residence of the bride's father, on Forest avenue, and the pretty house, tastily decorated, was filled by the guests. The bride is the second daughter of William H. Coles, for many years cashier of the Protective Union company, and takes with her the best wishes of her many friends.

      Mr. Dragheart is connected with a mercantile firm of Buffalo, to where the happy couple started, immediately after the ceremony, and where they will take up their residence.

      The bride was dressed in a fawn traveling dress and carried a bouquet of bridal roses. The presents were numerous and handsome. Some of those present were Franklin Coles, Isaac Coles, J. Thomas Coles, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Campbell, Miss Minnie Campbell and Walter Campbell, G. T. Raynor, Mrs. G. W. Gaynor, Mrs. A, A. Coles and Miss Amelia Coles. Miss Jean Valentine.
