      Mrs. Colby's Daughter Weds

      West Orange ? Mrs. Edith Colby de Rham, daughter of Mrs. Everett Colby and the late Senator Colby of Llewellyn Park, will be married this afternoon at 4'o'clock to Charles Edward Grafmueller of New York and Detroit, formerly of Rutherford and son of Edward Grafmueller and the late Mrs. Grafmueller. The ceremony will be performed in the garden of Oldstead Lodge, the Colby home, by Police Judge James A. Degnan of West Orange. Because of the recent death of Mrs. De Rham's father only members of the immediate families will attend. The couple will be unattended and there will be no reception.

      Mr. Grafmueller is on three days leave from his duties as a civilian attached to the Army Ordnance Department in Detroit. The couple have taken a house in Grosse Point, Mich.

      Mrs. De Rham's sister is Mrs. William H. Vanderbilt, wife of Comdr. Vanderbilt, former governor of Rhode Island, and her brother is Everett Colby, Jr. Her first marriage to Henry Longfellow de Rham took place in 1927 and ended last year in divorce.

      They have a son, Charles, 14, and a daughter, Edith, 10. She and Mr. Grafmueller's daughter, Joan S., will be with them in Grosse Point.

      Mr. Grafmueller's first wife, who died several years ago, was Miss Barbara Brownlee of Danbury, Conn., niece of Harold Dennis of Newark.

      Mr. de Rham right after the divorce married Miss Estelle Bolling of Richmond, Va., Aug. 6.
