Mr. and Mrs. Andrus J. Gilbert - CELEBRATING GOLDEN WEDDING ANNIVERSARY - Mr. and Mrs. Andrus J. Gilbert Married in Mansfield Fifty Years Ago Today - Mr. and Mrs. Andrus J. Gilbert of 355 Marion avenue, are today celebrating their golden wedding anniversary.  The event is being quietly celebrated by the couple, although a big family dinner at the family home this evening will help to remind them of a most important event in their lives.  Fifty years ago today, Jan. 15, 1868, Andrus J. Gilbert and Miss S. Delia Whitney, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. B. F. Whitney, were married at the Park avenue Baptist church, by the Rev. S. A. Collins.  This is the same church as the one standing there today at the corner of Park avenue west and North Walnut street.  "It was 15 degrees below zero on the night of the wedding," said Mr. Gilbert this morning, "and this brand of weather today is therefore nothing new to me."  Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert have made their home in Mansfield during all the years of their married life.  Both are in good health and have many years of life in look forward to.  They are the parents of three children, Edward J. Gilbert, Mrs. William A. Sheets and Rexford W. Gilbert, all of Mansfield.  [THE MANSFIELD NEWS: Tuesday, January 15, 1918; Page 10]
