Married, on the 7th of August
1823, Lemuel HUBBARD and Mary RUMBOLD.
On the 7th of August 1873
the surviving children and grand children, together with a goodly number
of friends assembled, by invitation, at the homestead, near Harmony, to
celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. HUBBARD.
Rev. W. A. CROUSE, in a short address,
congratulated the happy bride and groom upon their golden wedding, and
referred in felicitous terms to the blessings showered upon them by a kind
and bountiful Providence, and closed by presenting the bride with a magnificent
pair of gold spectacles, the gift of Col. A. J. WILLIS, of Potter's Landing.
Upon the conclusion of Mr. CROUSE's address
the supper hour having arrived all were invited to a long table on the
lawn fairly groaning with all the good things of the land. Due justice
being done to the substantials, a recess of an hour was spent in conversing
with old friends, croquet by the younger folks, an elegant address from
Col. WILLIS, and the presentation of the various gifts to the bride and
groom: Mr. Crouse returning thanks in behalf of the bashful couple. Then
the ice cream, cake and confections closed the day's eating.
The company separated hoping that our
friends may yet long live to celebrate their wedding day.
