E.S. GRIMES and his good wife today celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary of their wedding. They were married near Homer in Champaign Co., Ill. and have weathered the storms of 40 years together. Eight children have been born to them - 5 boys and 3 girls. All are still living in and near Decatur County, but one boy who died in infancy. The terrible roads prevented a family reunion, but these living here helped dispose of a sumptuous dinner prepared by Mother GRIMES. May they celebrate their diamond wedding before they part.
