A wedding at the lighthouse

In October of 1909 a wedding was held at the lighthouse. The following is a reprint of the announcement from a local newspaper.

A very pretty wedding was celebrated here Wednesday night, the contracting parties being Mr. Henry C. Clanson and Miss Florance E. Hill. The groom is a prominent employee of the Gulf Pipe Line company and the bride is the daughter of Capt. S.D. Hill, keeper of the Sabine Pass Lighthouse.

The bride was tastefully arrayed in a handsome robe of white liberty silk with bridal veil of white silk illusion, and carried a large bouguet of orange blossoms. Mr. Harlan Bethel was best man and the bridesmaid was Miss Sadie Hill, sister of the bride. Among the attendants of the wedding, which took place at the Sabine Pass Lighthouse, were Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Bergman, Captain, Plummer and wife, Mr. and Mrs. F.H. Robinson and daughter, Miss Margie, Mr. and Mrs. Sam Weinstein, Mrs. T.J. Ball and daughter, Miss Evelyn, Mesdames Guy, Liske and W.B. Thompson, Mr. and Mrs. C.W. Heartt, Mr. and Mrs. A.E. Grub, and among the gentlemen present besides the above were Messrs. Kurt Svansen, George Davis, M. Ball, Jennings Bergman, Captain Haley, D. Dickson, Judge Dave King. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Thomas Wilson of Sabine Pass. A supper followed the ceremony. The happy couple were the recipients of many and costly presents. They will make their home here.
