Mr. and Mrs. W.H. Brown of Delia announce an open house on Sunday, April 11th, from 1 to 5 p.m. celebrating their Golden wedding anniversary. The Browns were married in Rossville, April 14, 1887.

Celebrate Golden Wedding

Mr. and Mrs. W.H. Brown who live six miles north of Delia, celebrated their golden wedding anniversary, Sunday, April 11, with a family dinner and open house in the afternoon. They are Jackson county pioneers. Mr. Brown came to Kansas from Illinois in 1880. Mrs. Brown came from Michigan in 1871. Jackson county was a vast open prairie when Mr. Brown arrived and he broke the sod on the farm where he has resided for 53 years. They were married in Rossville, on April 14, 1887. Mr. Brown is 70 and Mrs. Brown is 69. They are the parents of four daughters, Mrs. Mabel Clark, Belvue; Mrs. Charlotte, Wamego; Mrs. Iva Bailey, Silver Lake and Miss Gladys of the home. They have eight grandchildren and two great-grandsons.

A color scheme of gold and white was carried out in the decorations and refreshments. The rooms were artistically decorated with white streamers and gold tinted wedding bells. Cut flowers and potted plants, gifts from relatives and friends were in profusion. Five beautiful golden anniversary cakes were baked by the four daughters and three grandchildren.

Among the many congratulation cards received was one from Mr. Brown’s cousin, Grove Cleveland Preston of Dunedin, Florida. Relatives and friends came from far and near and the house was filled to overflowing. The guests were entertained with a short program furnished by the grandchildren and great-great nieces and nephews. The following poem was composed by Mr. Brown’s niece, Mrs. Anna Franz Gaumer of Wamego and read by the oldest granddaughter, Mrs. Alva Flinn, of Wheaton:

On April 14, 1887,
A young man his lady fair
Were on their way to Rossville where
A marriage was to be performed,
Which was to last thru many years.
And that is why we’re here my dears.

Then back to the old “Homestead Brown”
The happiest bride and groom around
No “mock orange” wreath for them.
The vows they made, they kept
Until today, thru fifty years
They still are happy yet.

Four daughters came to bless
This little home of happiness.
The circle still remains unbroken.
This we know is another token.
That God was in this home to care
And see that all kept safely there.

The grandchildren number eight;
The girls and boys an even score—
Four of boys and girls four more;
Two small great-grandchildren if you please,
To sit upon great-grandparents’ knees.

And then one daughter has her turn
To see that home fires brightly burn
And help in every way she may
To brighten many a lonesome day.
Their Golden Wedding Day!

What a flood of memories it brings,
Many joys as well as sorrows.
And a host of other things.
How few folks pierced by Cupid’s dart
Even live and love to play the part
Of celebrating as do they
Their happy Golden Wedding Day.

They must have whispered soft and low
In that beloved long ago—
Come grow old along with me
“The best, my dear, is yet to be
“The last of life, for which the first was made.”

April 14, 1887
