Wedding Wednesday: S.E. Jones and Mabel Moore

2nd Presbyterian Church - St. Louis, Missouri

"Mr. T.A. Moore announces the marriage of his daughter Mabel Grace to Mr. Samuel Elliott Jones, Thursday, December nineteenth, Nineteen hundred and one, St. Louis."

Their marriage took place at the 2nd Presbyterian church located in the Central West End at 4501 Westminster Place which was designed in 1900 by Theodore Link in the same Romanesque style he had used when designing St. Louis's Union Station.

The couple honeymooned at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City.  A receipt showed them staying in room #893 with a weekly cost, including baggage, of $43.00.

Note: Mabel was the daughter of Thomas A. Moore and Clarissa V. (Pilcher).  She was born in St. Louis on 19 Jun 1877.  Her husband "Sammie" as she affectionately called him was the son of John Wesley Jones and Mary Martha Rather.  He was born in Decatur, AL on 30 Dec 1857.  They became the parents of two children.
