      following story:

      1859--Golden Wedding--1909

      Thursday of last week witnessed a very pleasant gathering at the home of Stephen and Elizabeth Clendenon, the occasion being the 50th anniversary of their marriage. They were married March 25th, 1859, in Belmont County, Ohio. They moved to Keokuk County in 1864, settling near Coal Creek, where they have since resided. Of the ten children, eight of whom are living, six were present. These were Louisa Wood of Sanborn, Mr. and Mrs I. W. Clendenon of Oskaloosa, Mrs. L. R. Green of Union, Mr. and Mrs. G. D. Pim and Misses Hannah and Lydia Clendenon of What Cheer. The absent ones, Mrs. S. H. Mott of Mankato, Minn., and Smith Clendenon of Lakonta, were each represented by a daughter, Miss Eleanor Mott and Miss Fae Clendenon. Mr. and Mrs. A. Branson of Thornburg, were also present, Mr. Branson being the only surviving brother of the bride of fifty years ago. Her only sister, Mary J. Steer, who lives in Ohio, and who celebrated her own Golden wedding two years ago, though not able to be present in person, sent a written message, and the beautiful lines which appear below. A very pleasant feature of the day, was the letters and greetings from distant friends and realtives which came from may states east and west. Among other gifts was a box of orange blossoms from California. It was a good day, and it would take more than the rough winds and muddy roads of a blustering March day to mar the happiness of such and occasion.
