Clifford & Hassie Dulaney

Clifford Aaron Dulaney, Sr. was the son of John Alfred Dulaney and Willie Lee Woodard, and the grandson of James M. Dulaney and Mary Elizabeth Senter. John Alfred was Bunt Tom's brother. Note Cliff's middle name of Aaron? That was the middle name of Bunt Tom whose full name was Thomas Aron Dulaney.

Cliff married Hassie Mae York, daughter of John Harmon York and Mary Elizabeth Martin, and my records show that they had seven children.

Below are some 'clippings' from early newspapers.

At the home of the bride's parents, near Friendship, Mr. Clifford Dulaney and Miss Hassie York were married last Sunday, Supervisor J. T. Dulaney officiating.

The groom is the oldest son of Mr. John A. Dulaney, who lives a few miles north of town, and is a model young man, and the bride is a beautiful young lady, worthy of any compliment we could bestow. May their happiness ever increase through life.
