Mr. and Mrs. Harry DeGraw helped the former's uncle, Wesley Vanderhoof, celebrate his eighty-fifth birthday anniversary on Tuesday of last week. The octogenarian is a Civil War veteran and enjoys the distinction of being the only man in Clark county, so far as is known, who has shaken hands with President Abraham Lincoln.
