It was 25 years ago Wednesday evening that Reuben S. Woodmansee and Miss. Cinia Jones were made man and wife near Decatur City, Iowa. For 8 years past have made their home in Mt. Ayr. Seven children have come to bless the union. Last Wednesday evening Mr. and Mrs. Woodmansee, their children, relatives and friends met at the Woodmansee home to celebrate the anniversary. Aside from the family there were present Messrs. and Mesdames G.S. Moore, J.F. Bevington, W.B. Ingram, J.N. Freeland, R.C. Henry, M.G. Maxwell, W.R. Locke, M.E. Case, L.O. Markham, and W.E. Burleigh, of Mt. Ayr; Mr. and Mrs. John Woodmansee, of Leon and Messrs. Clarence and Charles Barchus, of Benton.
Many beautiful silver presents were received from the friends. A delicious supper was served and in every way the guests were made to feel that they had spent a highly enjoyable evening. May the golden wedding day smile upon Mr. and Mrs. Woodmansee still prosperous and happy, surrounded by loving children and friends.
