From the Brandenton Herald, Wednesday September 7, 1988:
Mr. and Mrs. S.S. (Sam) Reighard of Ellenton will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary at a reception from 1 to 3 p.m. Sept. 11 in the clubhouse at Tidebvue Estates.
They were married Sept. 12, 1928, in Excelsior Springs, Mo. She is the former Mary Willie Sisk.
the Reighards have two chldren -- Nancy Wynant and Don s. Reighard, both of Pendleton, Ind. -- six granddaughters and seven great-grandchildren.
Mr. Reighard is retired from Indiana bell Telephone Co.
Mrs. Reighard is a retired school secretary.
They have lived in the Brandenton-Ellenton area for nine years.
Mary Willie is a younger sister of my greatgrand mother, Vesta Sisk. I have several family photos scanned including one of the Jesse Sisk family as adults.
On the back of the photo, I assume by my grandmother, are notes of each person and their birth and some death dates.
