The marriage of Cora Bridges and John Wilburn (J.W.) White would have been the talk of the town in 1891. Cora was the 24-year-old daughter of one of Mason's earliest families—as Cora's mother once put it, "they beat the town to Mason"—who eventually built the town's first hotel. Source. As for J.W., he had been the new bachelor in town, arriving to Mason in 1889 on horseback, driving his saddle horses along with his chuck wagon. Formerly of Gonzales, he'd begun his career running horses on open range land with his father and brother, but later joined his Uncle George to form a business trailing cattle to northern markets for sale.
There's no mystery, then, why J.W. would find himself in Mason. By 1870, Mason County was where the central Texas cattle trails joined up with The Great Western Cattle Trail. In fact, Pegleg Crossing, just north of town, was where drovers forded the San Saba River on their way up to the Kansas railhead. Source. It's likely that J.W. was introduced as an eligible bachelor to the young ladies of Mason at a social gathering in the one of the historic homes you see around town today.
