Lieutenant C. E. Taylor, of the 109th field signal battalion, at Camp Cody, and Mrs. Margaret Shaw, of Deming, were married Tuesday. On there return Wednesday to Deming they found the officers of the signal battalion gathered at the station with a decorated auto ready to convey them to the Lieutenant’s quarters, where they found a make-believe wedding bell suspended on the door. The outside walls were decorated with old shoes and other appropriate suggestions of wedding bliss, while the inside walls bore all sorts of comforting mottoes and suggestions for the newly weds. The bride was born and reared in Deming, being the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. Roush, pioneers of that place. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Thursday, July 11, 1918
