Fitz Eugene Dixon Gets Licence in Philadelphia
PHILADELPHIA, June 10. Fitz Eugene Dixon, son of T. Henry Dixon, a member of
the banking firm of Ervin & Co., took out a marriage license this afternoon
to wed Miss Eleanor Elkins Widener, daughter of Mrs. George D. Widener of
Elkins Park. Mr. Dixon gave his age as 24 and that of his fiancee as 21.

The ceremony, owing to the recent death of Miss Widener's father, George D.
Widener, and her brother, Harry Elkins Widener, who were lost on the
Titanic, will be performed at Lynnewood Hall, the home of the Wideners, by
the Rev. Dr. Cole. Only immediate members of both families will be present.
