    05 Aug 1930, Tue, Page 18. Stone-Ewing Wedding in Maine Yesterday of General Interest.

    An international wedding of more than usual interest to official, diplomatic and old residential Washington took place yesterday at Sorrento, Me.. when Miss Ellen Cox Ewing, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Ewing, became the bride of Mr. Thomas Archibald Stone, second secretary of the Canadian legation and son of Mr. and Mrs. Spencer Stone of Chatham. Ontario, Canada. Few weddings have had • lovelier setting, the ceremony taking , place in the picturesque little Church of the Redeemer, built 40 years ago by the bride's grandmother, Mrs. William F. Cochran. The arrangements for the wedding were charming in their simplicity and only relatives and a few close friends witnessed the ceremony. As the guests were assembling an organ recital was given by Miss. Hermoine Biggs.

    The Bishop of Washington. Right Rev. James E. Freeman, a lifelong friend of the bride's family, who officiated at the marriages of the bride's sister, Mrs. Newbold Noyes, and four of her brothers, performed the ceremony.

    The bride walked to the altar with her father who gave her in marriage. Her wedding gown was lovely, fashioned of ivory satin on graceful princess lines, the bodice designed with a bertha of rose-point lace and long, fitted sleeves. The long train was bordered with rose-point lace and orange blossoms, and her rose-point lace veil was arranged softly about her face. She carried a shower bouquet of white orchids and lilies of the valley. The lace used on the gown and the veil 1 were worn by the bride's mother and her sister. Mrs. Noyes, at their weddings. Newbold Noyes, jr., young nephew of the bride, was the train bearer.

    The third secretary of the British embassy. Mr. Michael Wright, was the best man.

    A wedding breakfast for the small company attending the ceremony, followed at Pine Pillow, the Summer home of the bride's parents. Sweet peas and gladioli were used at the house. Mrs. Ewing, the bride's mother, assisted in receiving guests, wearing a gown of peach-color lace with a hat to match. Later in the day Mr. Stone and his bride left aboard the Ortolan, the yacht of the bride's parents, on their wedding trip. They will be at home later at 1762 K street, this city. Mrs. Stone's going-away costume was a dark blue traveling suit with a hat to match.

    Among those at the wedding were Mr. and Mrs. Spencer Stone, parents, and Mr. Archibald Stone, brother of the bridegroom: Mr. and Mrs. Newbold Noyes. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Ewing, jr.: Mr. and Mrs. William F. C. Ewing, Mr. Bayard Ewing. Mrs. Edward L. Ayers, all of New York; Mr. and Mrs. Sherman Ewing of Pleasantville, N. Y.; Mr. and Mrs. Giflord C. Ewing of New Haven. Conn : Mr. and Mrs. Percy H. Stewart of Plainfield. N. J.; Mr. and Mrs. William F. Cochran, Miss Gwendolyn G. Cochran, Miss Anne Cochran. Mr. William F. Cochran, jr.. all of Baltimore; Miss Mary Beall Ewing and Mr. Hampson Ewing, jr., of Yonkers, K. Y.

    The bride is a granddaughter of the late Gen. Thomas Ewing of Civil War fame and a great-granddaughter of Thomas Ewing, one of the foremost lawyers of Ohio, who was Secretary of the Interior in President Taylor’s administration. and later Secretary of the Treasury during the administration of President William Henry Harrison. He was also Senator from Ohio for two terms. The bride's father was appointed commissioner of patents by President Wilson, and Mr. Ewing brought his family to Washington during that administration.
