G. A. Yarbrough m. Hattie Mae Kern, 1888 in Austin

Posted: 12 Jun 2012 10:23PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Yarbrough, Kern
I would be grateful for any information on the G. A. Yarbrough mentioned here (including his given names). The couple were married in Austin and G.A. died sometime after 1894, when his youngest child was born and before June 1900, when his wife is widowed in the 1900 Census. The couple were the parents of Juanita Pearl (Yarbrough) Carter and Herbert Amos Yarbrough, both born in Austin. (I have no evidence outside of this article that they were actually ever in LaGrange.)

They were married in Austin 4 Jun 1888 (so this article would have been published 5 Jun).

MARRIAGE
Yesterday evening at 8 o’€™clock at the
residence of the bride’€™s parents, Miss
Hattie M. Kern, one of Austin’€™s bright
and winsome young ladies, and Prof. G.
A. Yarbrough, a former instructor in the
Capital Business college of this city, were
joined in holy bonds of matrimony by
Rev. W. W. Pinson.

After the ceremony the happy couple
were driven to the International and Great
Northern depot, where they took the train
for LaGrange, at which place they will
commence their newly wedded life.
Their many friends wish them a life of
perfect bliss and sunshine.

Professor Yarbrough will open up a
business college at LaGrange, and the
STATESMAN trusts that every success may
crown his every effort.
