Turning Back the Pages

The marriage of Miss Gabrielle Heffron —daughter of John Heffron, formerly of Warrensburgh, now of 265 Glen Street, Glens Falls and Hugh S. Lavery, son of Samuel Lavery, a prominent young lawyer — took place June 25, 1913 at St. Mary’s Church, Glens Falls.

William Wallace of Warrensburgh, and Miss Winifred Bly, a former resident, were married the afternoon of June 28, 1913 at Schroon Lake where the bride has lived for some time with her mother, Mrs. Etta Bly. The young couple will camp during the summer on the shore of Schroon Lake.

Walter H. Pasco, son of Delbert Pasco, and Miss Elizabeth Herrick, daughter of Halsey Herrick, were married by the Rev. G.H. Purdy at the Church of the Holy Cross, in Warrensburgh, the morning of July 3, 1913 at 7:30 a.m. They left soon after on their honeymoon for an automobile trip through the Adirondacks. (Note - Elizabeth Herrick was the first wife of Walter Pasco. After she died, he married Helen Brennon.)

Set for the season

Louise Homer, the popular New York Opera singer, known to the public as “Madame Homer,” has leased the summer home of Mrs. Mary F. Paine, on the Bolton Road for the summer season. The Paine house is located on the property adjoining the Shepard home. (Note: Louise Dilworth Beatty was married to composer Sidney Homer and she was called “the greatest contralto the Metropolitan Opera ever had.”)

Chester House’s summer guests

The popularity of the Chester House, with its old mahogany and well-kept antiques under the direction of Proprietor Harry S. Downs, is attested to by the arrival of dozens of autos each day, most of which are filled with tourists who linger in the neat little village of Chestertown. In the cool of the evening the front porch is well filled with permanent summer guests.
