Celebrate Their Golden Wedding

MARRIEDŚNear Wyoming, Iowa, on October 16th, 1856, Mr. William Crone was united in marriage with Miss Helen Haight. On Tuesday, Oct. 16th, 1906, at their pleasant home in the city of Superior, Nebraska, this highly respected couple celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary, by inviting a number of their friends and relatives to spend the day with them and partake of a splended dinner.

Mr. William Crone was born in Morris county, N.J., on the 7th of May, 1831, where he resided until 24 years of age, when he removed to Iowa in the fall of 1855. In 1862 he enlisted in the Union army serving his country faithfully two years and eleven months.

Miss Helen Haight was born in Madison county, N.Y., June 11th, 1831, and moved from there to Wyoming, Jones county, Iowa in the fall of 1855.

Mr. and Mrs. Crone lived in the vicinity of Wyoming until 1878 when they cast their lot with the people of the great west, settling on a farm in the northern part of Jewell county, Kansas, sharing alike the reverses and good fortunes of their neighbors until in 1904, when they sold their farm and on July 20th moved to Superior where they have since resided, enjoying the esteem and confidence of all their acquaintences. Mr. and Mrs. Crone are to be congratulated upon having arrived at the advanced stage of married life when they can celebrate their golden wedding, and we sincerely hope they may live to see many more returns of the day commemorating the sacred union which has been so well lived out.
