Wyatt Scrapbook - Marriage of Mary Edna Lee and Lawrence Glenn Foust

In November 2011, I purchased a scrapbook at an antiques mall in Carson, California. The scrapbook is believed to have belonged to Laurine Wyatt. I am transcribing the articles and documents contained in the scrapbook with the hope that it may be of value to genealogists who may be researching the individuals named.

“Miss Mary Edna Lee Becomes Bride of Lawrence Glenn Foust In Quiet Ceremony

Mr. and Mrs. S. M. Lee of Clarksville announce the marriage of their daughter, Mary Edna, to Lawrence Glenn Foust, son of Mrs. L. C. Foust of Sango. The wedding took place at the First Baptist Church in Clarksville at 7 o'clock the evening of March 26. The Rev. Richard N. Owen performed the ceremony.

For the occasion the bride was attractive in a two-piece beige suit with patent leather accessories. Her flowers were talisman roses. Mrs. Walter Gray, sister of the groom, serving as attendant, chose an outfit of Navy blue with white accessories. Her flowers were Briarcliff roses.

Walter Gray was best man.

Only a few close friends of the family attended the wedding.

Mrs. Foust is a graduate of Clarksville High School and attended Austin Peay State College for two years. She has been with Boillin-Harrison Co. here for several years. Mr. Foust is a graduate of Clarksville High School and is now engaged in farming.”

  1. No marriage record for this couple could be found on or FamilySearch.
  2. The date of publication and the title of the newspaper in which this announcement appeared are unknown; searches made on NewspaperArchives and GenealogyBank.
  3. The relationship of Laurine Wyatt to this couple is unknown.
