The Lang Family



My grandparents, Rose Bertrand and Thomas Francis Lang on their wedding day, May 21, 1921, St. Anne Church, Laurium, Michigan

News item: BERTRAND-LANG

Pretty Wedding is Solemnized at St. Anne's Church Today.

The marriage of Miss Rose Bertrand daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. Bertrand of Montreal, Canada, and Thomas F. Lang, son of Mrs. Catherine Lang of Lake Linden avenue, was solemnized this morning at 9 o'clock at St. Anne's church. Reve, Fr. Paquet officiated. The attendants were Miss Catherine Lang and Hugh Lang, sister and brother, respectively, of the groom.

The bride wore a beautiful blue suit with picture hat and a corsage bouquet of sweetheart roses. Following the ceremony a dinner was served.

The groom, who is well known, is employed by the Houghton County Traction Co., while the bride, during her short residence here, has made a host of friends.

Mr. and Mrs. Lang will leave today for Chicago where they will spend two weeks after which they will make their home on Lake Linden Avenue.
