Marriage of Pastor of Theresa Presbyterian Church and Theresa High School Teacher Surprised Friends in Northern New York.
(Special to The Times.)
Theresa, Nov. 23. -- A marriage that will have a state wide notice as well as the keenest local interest was solemnized at the First Presbyterian church in Watertown at 2:25 this afternoon when Miss Maude M. Hibbard became the wife of Rev. E. O. McFarland, pastor of the Flower Memorial Presbyterian church in this village. The marriage service was performed by Rev. Dr. Darwin F. Pickard, pastor of the First Presbyterian church of Watertown.
Note: A photo of Rev. McFarland was included within the text.
Only a few guests were in attendance, the bride and groom being attended by Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Hubbard of this village. Following the wedding a dinner was served at the parsonage home of Dr. and Mrs. Pickard to the wedding party and guests.
Following the dinner Rev. and Mrs. McFarland left for a short honeymoon trip, but will be home here in time for the Sunday service and will be at home at the Presbyterian manse at that time.
So well arranged were the wedding plans that hardly a person in the place knew of the coming event. Today at 1 Mr. and Mrs. Hubbard, at whose home Rev. Mr. McFarland has taken his meals for some time, stated that they guessed they would drive to Watertown and it was only usual that the pastor went along with them. Miss Hibbard joined as one of the party, but the plans had been laid well in advance.
Rev. Mr. McFarland has been a very successful pastor in the Presbyterian churches of this and other states and for well over a dozen years he has been the key-man of the State Synod to go out and build up churches where unusual ability was needed. He came to the Theresa church by request of the state superintendent, Rev. Mr. Mackey, of New York, and started his work of upbuilding. He outlined and successfully completed the celebration of the centennial of the church and soon he started the work of repairs and beautifying the church building. Only recently he rededicated the church with a splendid program.
Another splendid movement here was the well thought out plan of a park for the village and securing the consent of Dr. F. L. Santway to make the gift. Following that he planned two building days at the park and one field day.
He recently asked to be relieved of the work here, but the people would not have it. He has made a union, for a time at least, of the OxBow and Theresa Presbyterian churches and serves these two churches each Sunday, besides teaching a large class in Sunday school.
The bride is the daughter of the late Leander P. and Mary E. Hibbard. She is a graduate of the Potsdam Normal school and the Rochester Business institute. She organized the commercial department in the Alexandria Bay High school and taught there seven years. She is now commercial teacher in the Theresa High school. Her grandparents were early settlers of this section, locating near Chauftys Corners over a century ago when the country was a wilderness. Miss Hibbard has been active in local organizations, being a strong supporter of the Theresa Progress club. She has resigned her position at the local school, subject to the place being filled.
