GREEN – SINGLETON.

A very quiet wedding was celebrated on Monday evening at St. John’s Church, Darlinghurst, the contracting parties being Mr. T. H. Green and Miss Estella Overina Jones Singleton, third daughter of the late Superintendent James Singleton, of Albury, and Mrs. Singleton, of Combooah, Darlinghurst.

The bride wore a pretty cream silk frock, showing a lace tunic, and a picture hat, and was given away by her brother, Mr. Llewellyn Singleton.

Her sister, Miss G. Singleton, acted as maid of honor, and Mr. John Singleton Ross ( cousin ) was the best man.

* There are a few discrepancies with this entry.
The Grave stone clearly states that the date of death is 24 February 1913 BUT the above article about his 3rd daughter – Estella Overina Jones SINGLETON getting married, states ” …… the late Superintendent James Singleton….” – that article being dated 17 January 1912.
