Their Golden Wedding


Mr. and Mrs. H.H. Ford celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary last Sunday by a family reunion. The exact date of the anniversary was the day previous and owing to the inability of the sons and daughters to be present the gathering was postponed one day. Two daughters with their families, of Oklahoma, were not present but the other children, Henry Ford and family of Topeka, Ben Ford and family of Delia, Mrs. Emma Enos and daughter, of Oklahoma City, Sherman James an family, and Mr. and Mrs. Shirley Parr and daughter were present.

Mr. and Mrs. Ford have looked forward to this occasion for some time, both because it is an event celebrated by few couples and because it was a date set for the homecoming of all their children. The dinner was prepared and served by the daughters, Mrs. Ford being in ill health at this time.

Mr. and Mrs. Ford were married July 18, 1864 in Manhattan, Kan. They settled in this community on the old home farm southwest of Rossville, long before the present town was started. From a piece of most unpromising timber land they kept working away clearing and improving from time to time until it was worth nearly as much an acre as Mr. Ford was offered for the whole piece in the early days. About six years ago Mr. and Mrs. Ford moved to Rossville to rest and enjoy the fruits of their many years labors.

The Reporter wishes to extend to Mr. and Mrs. Ford its heartiest congratulations and trust their usual good health will permit them to celebrate many more wedding anniversaries.

-------

Saturday, July 18, will be the fiftieth wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. H.H. Ford, and the occasion will be celebrated by a family reunion. Mrs. Lulu Ward and children, of Lexington, Okla., and Mrs. Alice Hubyca, of Oklahoma City, are expected here and Mr. and Mrs. Ford hope to have every child and grandchild with them on this day
