From the Philadelphia Inquirer dated 31 May 1901:

PRETTY WEDDING AT HEDGELEY
ACCORDING TO QUAKER RITES
------------------------------------
Special to the Inquirer.
WEST CHESTER, May 30.--"Hedgeley," the beautiful home of Professor and Mrs. Richard Darlington, near this place, was the scene of a notable wedding, at 6:o'clock this evening, when their eldest daughter, Miss Alice Elizabeth became the bride of Dr. Joseph Scattergood, a rising young physician of West Chester.

The wedding was by Friends' ceremony, Robert Alexander, of Philadelphia, uncle of the bride, reading the certificate, which was signed by nearly all the guests present. Miss Grace Alexander Darlington, sister of the bride, was maid of honor, and the bridesmaids were Miss Sara DeHaven, of Westtown; Miss Mary S. Ash, of Philadelphia; Miss Pattie D. Huey, of Chadd's Ford, and Miss Elizabeth Rothrock, of West Chester.

Henry Scattergood, of Philadelphia, was the groom's best man, and the ushers were Vincent Gillpin and Dr. Herbert Grubb, of West Chester, and Alfred Scattergood and Charles Alexander, of Philadelphia. The ceremony was witnessed by about four hundreds friends of the contracting parties.

Note: I am not related to the happy couple.
