~ Dammann, Mr. & Mrs. Martin ~

Golden Wedding Anniversary
Married: November 3, 1848

Mr. and Mrs. Martin Dammann, heads of one of the oldest and most influential German families in Jasper County, celebrated their golden wedding on Thursday of last week at their big farm home in the north of Malaka, in which their entire family of children and grandchildren participated, as well as a number of other friends. The entire day and evening were given to merrymaking over the joyous anniversary. Mr. and Mrs. Dammann were married fifty years ago at Mecklenburg, Prussia, and came to the New World many years ago, where a bountiful providence has blessed them in "basket and store," given them a large family of stalwart sons and daughters, well worthy of their honorable parentage, and a competence, which will insure them comfort and plenty in their declining years. We hope they may live to celebrate their one hundredth wedding anniversary. ~ The Newton Record, Thursday, November 10, 1898, Page 1, Column 4

~ Dennis, Sam & Mary Burns ~

Married Twenty Years
Married: April 4, 1879

About thirty or forty friends made things merry for Mr. and Mrs. S. B. Dennis at their home on South St., Tuesday evening. It had "leaked out" among the neighbors that just twenty years before, at the little town of Newburn, this state, Sam B. Dennis had taken unto himself a bride in the person of Miss Mary B. Burns; and that the score of years intervening had not robbed the event of any of its importance - hence the surprise visit to commemorate it. After an exchange of pleasant greetings and cordial welcome between the "bride and groom" and their guests, elegant refreshments were served from mysterious baskets that had been smuggled in the home, and the entire evening was as merry as the proverbial "wedding bells." Mrs. Dennis was presented with a number of choice china dishes. ~ The Newton Record, Thursday, April 6, 1899, Page 1, Column 2

Doane, Charlie & Mary Deane

Doane - Deane 25th Married: April 27, 1870

Twenty-five years ago Hon. C. N. Doane, of Richland Township, the Charlie Doane, a young farmer in his 20's was united in the "holy bonds" to Miss Mary Deane, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Deane of the same neighborhood. The ceremony was solemnized by Rev. Lyman at Kellogg.

Last Saturday was the twenty-fifth anniversary of the happy event, and Mr. and Mrs. Doane invited in large company of their neighbors to "make merry" with them in commemoration of it. The beautiful farm home was filled with happy hearted, good-natured people to whom the day's enjoyment will ever be a pleasant memory. A sumptuous dinner was served at high noon, and "Oh, such a dinner," is what they all say.

Conspicuous among the guests present, was A. S. Deane, the aged father of Mrs. Doane, whose 88th birthday it was. Although nearing man's allotted time of "four score years and ten," he is still in the enjoyment of excellent health, retains much of his youthful spirit, and entered into the joys and pleasures of the day equally with his children and neighbors. ~ The Newton Record, Friday, May 3, 1895, Page 1, Column 2
