Bigamy hearing interrupted for wedding.

Wilson Daily Times, 13 January 1928.

I had to read this a few times before I understood that the couple being married was not named in the piece.

As for James Artis, at age 19 he married Cherry Murphy, 18, on 1 October 1922 in Ormonds township, Greene County, North Carolina. I have not found a license for him and Lena Edwards.
