Fiftieth Wedding Anniversary Party

of Mary Rumbold and Lemuel Hubbard
7th August 1873


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.
