Wedding Wednesday - Percival & Stannard
Since I don't have the actual notice of their marriage, this anniversary article will have to do:
SPRINGFIELD CENTER, MARCH 6. - Mr. and Mrs. Elisha Stannard celebrated their golden wedding anniversary Wednesday. Mrs. Stannard was attired in the gown she wore at her wedding 50 years ago. There was a large number of friends present and a number of beautiful presents were received. An elegant supper was served and the time was spent in social enjoyment. Mr. and Mrs. Stannard have resided in this town all their lives and are estimable people and have a great many friends in the community. All join in wishing them many more years of wedded happiness. (Utica Herald-Dispatch. Utica, New York, 50th Anniversary, 6 March 1903.)
