Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Miller Celebrate Golden Wedding

On March 20th, 1872, at St. Mary's, Ontario, William MILLER and Amanda
DOUPE were united in marriage by Rev. Charles STRINGFELLOW, who died at
Hagersville, Ont., on March 15th, 1915, aged 82 years.
In the Spring of 1879 Mr. and Mrs. MILLER arrived at Winnipeg, and
from there journeyed to their present home, E 1/2 33 13 22 Oak River, by
ox cart, the trip taking three weeks.
Like many of those sturdy pioneers, they now have a well equipped
farm, one of the largest and best in the district. Mr. MILLER is an
admirer of high class stock, and takes great pride in his purebred
Clydesdale horses. Mr. and Mrs. MILLER have proven themselves a
valuable asset to the district, not only from a material standpoint, but
from a moral and religious one as well.
The happy event of fifty years ago was suitably celebrated on Monday
evening, March 20th, at the home of Jno. HUME, Oak River, when
thirty-nine of the immediate friends sat down to a delightful repast.
In addition to the bride and groom all their children and their eight
grandchildren were present, excepting Miss Beatrice HUME who is at
Wesley College, Winnipeg.
The children are: Frank MILLER and Miss Ada MILLER at home; Mrs. Jnu
HUME, Oak River; and Mrs. W. E. KING, Neepawa. Mrs. Robt. HEDLEY,
another daughter, died in 1903.
There were also present at the golden wedding Mr. MILLER's three
sisters, Mrs. E. MC DONALD, Mrs. J. SPARLING and Miss H. MILTIER, who
was bridesmaid for Mr. and Mrs. MILLER. Ephriam SPARLING, the
groomsman, is living at Lindsay, Ont. Mrs. MILLER has one sister, Mrs.
SPEARIN, living at St. Mary's, Ont.
The programme of the evening consisted of a toast to the bride and
groom, a social time, a musical programme and a presentation by the
family of an appropriately inscribed gold watch and chain to the groom,
and a gold ring and jet necklace to the bride. The W.M.S. of the Union
church presented Mrs. MILLER with a gold life membership pin. Numerous
other gifts were received by the bride and groom in honor of the
Mr. and Mrs. MILLER are both in excellent health, and their many
friends wish them many more years of health and happiness.
