Tribune Tuesday: Secret Wedding

From: The Oakland Tribune, 06 December 1910

Secret Wedding Revealed By Bride's Chance Remark

As a culmination of a romance which began during their school days, Miss Hazel E. Reid and Francis W. Edwards slipped away to San Rafael October 26 and were married by Rev. Griffin M. Cutting of St. Paul's Episcopal church.

The news of the marriage had been kept a secret from the families and friends of both young people, but it was revealed yesterday by a chance remark dropped by the bride.

The youthful bride has been living with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Reid of 1224 Twelfth street, who had no suspicion of their daughter's secret marriage.

Both young people declare that "they did it for a lark" and that there was no opposition to the marriage from either family.
