A pleasing social event took place in the home of Dr. C. B. BRASHEAR,
a former Washington county man, now of Wellsburg, W. Va., last
Wednesday, September 29, when he and his wife celebrated the fiftieth
anniversary of their marriage. A large company filled the stately
home of Dr. and Mrs. BRASHEAR, which was artistically decorated for
the occasion with fall flowers. The refreshments also carried out
the color scheme of gold and white. On the dining room table, which
was decorated in yellow flowers and golden candle lights, reposed an
immense wedding cake, while beside it was another baked by Mrs.
Elidabeth (sic) SCOTT, who fifty years ago baked the wedding cake
which graced the nuptial board of the young couple.
The celebration was also in the nature of a family
reunion and among the three hundred guests were the following
relatives from a distance;
Mr. and Mrs. A. D. BRASHEAR, of Dallas, Texas; Mr. and >
Mrs. J. K. P. BOLES, of Midway, Pa., Oscar BOLES of Indianapolis,
Ind., O. T. BRASHEAR and Miss Alice CHRISTY, of Hanlin, Pa., Mrs. C.
H. MONROE, of Mogadove, Ohio and Mrs. George MOORE of Braddock, Pa.
The guests departed at a late hour after wishing Dr.
BRASHEAR and his wife many more happy anniversaries.
