Cornwell, Mr./Mrs. Orville #2 (Gold - 23 DEC 1902)
On Tuesday evening, Dec 23rd, 1902, Mr. and Mrs. Orville Cornwell celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their wedding, at their pleasant farm home two miles southwest of the city (Neillsville, Clark Co., Wis.). They sent out invitations to a large number of friends, and the house was about as full as it would hold of old acquaintances, who put in a most agreeable evening, congratulating the aged couple, admiring their presents, eating a supper that was fit for any king on earth, and staying, if the truth be told, pretty late. The children and grandchildren present made a goodly bunch by themselves. Mr. and Mrs. Cornwell have won a comfortable competence, their brick house and substantial barns and granaries being full of those things which make for a comfortable and peaceful life, and they are congratulated upon the fact that they are still well and happy.
