A quiet house wedding took place at 64 Francis street, the home of Mrs. Morris, at 3.30 on Dec. 7, when Mr. J. Mayhew, of Wawanesa, and Miss Alice Long, of Toronto, were united in marriage by Rev. Hamilton Wigle, the former pastor of the bride. The drawing rooms were prettily decorated with plants and chrysanthemums. The bride wore a pretty costume of brown broadcloth with cream lace and chiffon trimmings. The bride received many beautiful presents, a number of which were from friends in Toronto and the eastern provinces. The groom's present was a handsom fur-lined coat with mink collar and revers. Mr. and Mrs. Mayhew went west by the evening train.1

     September 2016 Research notes:
Are John Mayhew, son of Ira and Margaret and John Mayhew, husband of Alice Long, the same person?

Also, did Ira and Margaret have two sons named John, with the first dying before the birth of the second.3
