Ashland Clipper, March 20, 1913


Thirty of the children, grand-children and Great grand-children of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Burkett assembled at the home of Mrs. John W. Severe in this city last Monday to celebrate the Sixtieth Wedding anniversary of the old people.  It was intended to have all of the near relatives here, but some were unable to attend, so it is contemplated to have another meeting in the near future.

Think what a stretch of years these old people have lived together as man and wife!  Few ever life so long even, and now few ever live to celebrate their sixtieth anniversary.

Contemplate the many luxuries you now enjoy that have been brought to perfection since they were married.  The telephone, the phonograph, the auto and others innumerable.

They are splendid old people and all wish them yet another long stretch of years with us.

Those present were, Mr. and Mrs. I. B. Burkett, Mr. and Mrs. S. G. Gribble and children, Mrs. Julia A. Coons and Mrs. Claudia Hill and children.
