Mr. and Mrs. I. H. Moulton Observe Sixty-Third Wedding Anniversary

Easter Sunday was the sixty-third anniversary of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. I. H. Moulton. Their observance of the happy event was in keeping with the day --- a quiet dinner given by their two daughters, Mrs. Abbie Burton and Mrs. Joseph Skinner, at the home of the former. Mr. Skinner and Mr. and Mrs. Max Burton participated.

Despite the illness which had confined him for some time, Captain Moulton was in prime healthy and spirits, and his good lady was equally "fit". The captain passed his eighty-sixth milestone in November, and Mrs. Moulton is a year younger, yet such is their friends' faith in the stamina of these honored pioneers that it was the prophetic confidence that they wished them "many happy returned of the day".
