Re: Annie Rachael (Canning) Haley of Springhill

Sylvia MacKay was living in Heathbell NS at the time of her mother's death. She has since moved to Scotsburn and has 2 children Marion Sutherland and Gordon MacKay, as well as one grandchild, myself, Elizabeth Sutherland.

The ceremony was performed by Rev. J. H. Graven, of Truro.

Her finger tip veil was gathered with a tiara of iridescent sequins and she carried a bouguet of yellow roses and white poms.
> Bridges maid was Mrs. Earnie Rolfe, Springhill, cousin of the bride, who wore a pink lace and net over taffeta ballerina length gown and carried a bouguet of pink and white carnations.

> The happy couple will reside in Scotsburn where the groom is a prosperous farmer.
