Chambers, Mr./Mrs. George (Golden - 24 July 1934)
Married - Mr. Geo. Chambers and Miss Minnie Adams, two popular young people of Humbird, were united in marriage at the Squire’s home in Merrillan, on July 24, 1884. They will begin housekeeping at once on the groom’s farm near Humbird.
Fifty years ago George Chambers was one of the energetic and prosperous young farmers of this vicinity, living on the farm with his father and brother, and amongst them doing the k. p. duties while the three crews of housekeepers came, worked and went. Naturally George’s ear was to the ground for a housekeeper who was good to look upon and willing to accept a permanent position.
Fifty years ago Miss Minnie Adams, not much past the "sweet sixteen" age, a most attractive young maiden, was engaged as domestic in a neighboring family, and as she scoured the kettles and pans to a reflecting brightness, naturally she reflected upon the time when that labor of love would be performed in her own home.
Fifty years ago it was quite natural that these two young people should slip away to a neighboring hamlet and returned as husband and wife, to make their home here permanently, and raise their family consisting of two daughters, now Mrs. Guy Crandell, and Mrs. Walter Smith, of this village, and one son, Robert Adams Chambers, of Ft. Madison, Iowa.
Fifty years ago Mr. and Mrs. Chambers no doubt did not look forward to a happy celebration of their golden wedding day, but the Ladies Aid Society, of which Mrs. Chambers is the last charter member, kept the event in mind, and Tuesday forenoon an informal party reception was held at the Chamber’s home, which was attended by many of their friends, dainty refreshments being served, and a bit of gift left for the bride.
Fifty years ago! How many happy recollections they contain for the bride and groom. Happiness is their family, happiness in their labors together, happiness in their wide circle of friendships formed, happiness in good health and a goodly portion of prosperity to carry them on. Mr. Chambers says that anniversary was one of the happiest days he has since he left Pennsylvania as a mere boy, and Mrs. Chambers would not return to her childhood home in Minnesota for the wide wide world!
