    • They were married at the Advent Episcopal Church in Philadelphia, 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 Annie'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.
