    Address:
    Church of the Advent Episcopal 
    • They were married at the Episcopal Church of the Advent, 12 Byberry Avenue, Hatboro, PA by Reverend Enoch Hooven Supplee.

      We do not know for sure how they met, but can speculate. Albert Cadwallader, then twenty-seven years old, was engaged in the grocery and provision business in Milton, Pennsylvania. During the Civil War he had served as an agent responsible for getting supplies to soldiers at the front. Two of Anna's uncles were businessmen in Philadelphia and J. Wesley Supplee was head of his own commission merchant firm and a bank president. Philadelphia was the logical supply source for a firm in Milton, and Albert Cadwallader probably had business connections with the Supplees. Opportunities must have occurred for him to meet their attractive young niece.

    Address:
    Grace Church, Diocese of Pennsylvania 
    • They were married by Assistant Minister Rev. Charles Knowles Penney at the Hanover Hotel, Arch and 12th Streets, Philadelphia. Penney was a minister at Grace Church, a Protestant Episcopal church at 226 E. Gowen Ave. in Philadelphia. This hotel was easily accessible to the train stations for Mary coming from Milton, and Harry coming from Camp Alger, VA.

      Mary was 5 months pregnant with Anna at the time of their marriage. Both families were outraged that Harry did not want to marry her, and pressured him into doing the right thing. The minister was probably selected by Mary's mother, Anna Louisa (Supplee) Cadwallader, who was Episcopalian.
