Royce Allen Burns, 1932-2007, Texas

I'm the worst about concentrating on chasing obituaries in newspapers. However, there's so much more that you can find in newspapers. While trawling for info on NewspapersArchives.com, I ran into this wedding article for Royce Allen Burns (Find A Grave memorial 75585024). I didn't have a marriage date for Royce and the Texas marriage index on Ancestry.com doesn't pick up until 1966. So finding this article was a nice way of getting to the date, location, and so much more.

The Paris News, Paris, Texas, 26 Dec 1956, Page 9 Paris News Service
ROSALIE - Royce Allen Burns, Rt. 1, Bogata, and Miss Imagene Cagle, Rt. 3, Clarksville, were married Saturday morning by the Rev. Hoyt Briniee, Bogata Baptist pastor, at the home of the bridegroom's brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Maxie Lewis. The attendants were Gerald Burns and Miss Betty Butler.
The bride wore a blue faille dress with full skirt and fitted bodice, with boat-shaped neckline and short sleeves, her small hat with veil being rhinestone-trimrned.
After the ceremony, a three tiered cake, trimmed in blue, was cut and served with punch by Mrs. Juarez Jordan and Mrs. Lewis. The table was spread wi th lace over blue, Christmas decorations being used elsewhere in the rooms.
Miss Reba Joyce Robinson had charge of the register, and Mrs. Jim Robinson and Mrs. Gene Burns were also in the houseparty. Guests included Mrs. R.S. Rice, Bobbie Rice and Bobby Lee Yenable, all of Denison; Carl Henry Burns, New Roads, La.; Gene Burns and Burl Robinson.
The bride, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Cagle, Rt. 3, Clarksville, is a Clarksville High School senior, while the bridegroom is employed by Griff in and Dickson Construction Company. He is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Gene Burns, Bogata.
After a trip to Arkansas, the couple will be at home in Bogata.
Now if I only had a wedding picture...
