Slater -Simmons wed 1901

July 2, 1901
Dr. B. J. Simmons, the colored physician of this city, was married to Petronia Slater, a daughter of Alonza Slater, the well-known carpenter, last Wednesday night. The marriage was a run away match, on account of parental objection, as they wanted their daughter to finish her education in a college in Virginia, which she had been attending. The marriage created much interest among the negroes, as both parties are among the most intelligent of their race.
