A Golden Anniversary Kosse, Limestone Co., Texas, Feb. 18: WINFIELD S. HUNNICUTT and wife celebrated their fiftieth or golden wedding anniversary at their home a few miles west of here yesterday. Besides their children and grandchildren, fifty or more of their old friends and neighbors of 40 years’ standing were present.
W. S. HUNNICUTT was born in Lincoln County, Tennessee nearly 75 years ago and was married to LUCINDA SMITH on the 17th of February, 1848 in Lincoln County, Tennessee. They moved to Texas in 1850 and settled on the place where they now live, where they have since resided. Seventeen children were born to them, three of whom are dead and fourteen living, and all but one were with them yesterday. The absent one lives in Mississippi. All of their children are grown and were present with their families at the old home yesterday to do honor to their venerable parents. The old couple are hale and hearty and bid fair to celebrate several more reunions.
