SHACKFORD-GREENE

MALDEN, June 4.-A very pretty home
wedding took place this evening at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Charles A. Greene,
156 Belmont street, when their daughter,
Miss Lettie E. Greene, became the bride
of Mr. Ernest T. Shackford of Maple-
wood.
Miss Greene is a graduate of the high
school and the groom is the son of As-
sessor J. Tyler Shackford.
The ceremony was performed by the
Rev. William F. Dusseault of Hyde Park/
The bridesmaid was Miss Lillian A.
Greene, sister of the bride, and the best
man Edward D. Henderson.
After a tour to New York Mr. and Mrs.
Shackford will reside at 20 Church street,
Maplewood.

In 1910, the family was living at 31 Spruce St and Ernest was working as a clerk in an electric office but shortly thereafter when he registered for the draft they had moved to 17 Garland street and he was working for the Edison Electric Company at 39 Boylston Street in Boston. In 1920 he was a clerk at an electric house and the next year the family moved to 99 Hancock St where he lived until he died on September 3, 1932.

We wish we knew more about Ernest but are thankful for the descriptive wedding announcement that we’ve found and shared.
