ATHENS, Texas, April 19 -- Mr. and Mrs. J J Faulk of Athens celebrated their golden wedding anniversary with a marriage ceremony at the First Methodist Church in Athens recently. Mr. and Mrs. Faulk were married fifty years ago in Austin at the State Capitol. Gov. O M Roberts being present at the wedding. At that time Mr. Faulk was Representative in the Legislature. The couple have lived continually in Athens since that time, where Mr. Faulk has practiced law. He served four years as State Senator from this district.
Senator Faulk has been active in civic, church and political affairs all his life. Though he "refuses" to tell his age, he boasts that he is the "youngest old man in Henderson County," and still takes an active part in church work and politics. His wife, known to Athenians as Miss Genie, has been an active worker in the Methodist Church for many years, and there is hardly a grown person in Athens who has not at some time or other attended Miss Genie's Sunday school class.
Attendants at the wedding were old friends of the couple and earlyday members of Mrs. Faulk's Sunday school classes. The golden wedding ceremony was performed by the Rev. H V Watts, pastor of the Methodist Church.
