A Golden Wedding

The Yorkville Enquirer, January 14, 1886

On the 5th day of the present month col. Cadwallader Jones and his wife celebrated their golden wedding. The occasion was one of great interest and pleasure to their large family circle. Accordingly a gathering of their children and grandchildren was only natural. The following members of the family were present: Iredell Jones and wife, Allen Jones and wife, Johnstone Jones and wife of North Carolina, Willie Jones of Columbia, T. C. Robertson and wife of Columbia, H. P. Jones, J. S. Coles and wife of Alabama, together with thirteen grandchildren. After a family meeting and greeting, dinner was announced, and life affords but few occasions of genuine happiness than was experienced at the festive board. The bride and groom of half a century, seated at their table, surrounded by a happy group of children and grandchildren, made a grand and beautiful scene. The groom bowed his venerable head and said an appropriate grace, as follows:.......A full grown turkey.......This was followed by an appropriate toast to the old chiefton, who responded with a "bumper." The health of the absent was also drank. These consisted of only two members, viz.: Mrs. George Erwin and Cadwallader Jones, Jr. of Alabama.

Many presents, consisting principally of gold coin, were given the aged couple, and a feeling of happiness and thankfulness pervaded the entire family group which is seldom experienced in life.........To Iredell Jones, the eldest of the children present, was accorded the honor of cutting the wedding cake "black cake" with the figures "1836-1886" tastefully wrought in the decorations.

One circumstance of special interest is the fact that during the long married life of Col. and Mrs. Jones, there has been but one death to mourn in their immediate family. and we are sure the community will join us in expressing the hope...........
