THE WESTERN STAR, 1 November 1918
Golden Wedding Anniversary of

It was on October 23, 1868, in Throckmorton-co., Texas, that Mr. and Mrs. A. C. McDonold of this city were united in marriage. That was fifty years ago, and on Wednesday of last week, October 23, 1918, they celebrated their "golden" wedding anniversary. They had planned to have a number of their relatives and friends present, but the prevalence of the influenza prevented. The day, however, was not forgotten by any means.

Mr.. and Mrs. McDonold received the congratulations of their friends upon having completed the 50th year of their married life, and sincere good wishes for their continued health and happiness were expressed. Mr. and Mrs. McDonold were among Comanche-co.'s pioneer settlers. They knew full well what is implied by the term "pioneers" in a new country. They toiled, they sacrificed and preserved, and, as many others have done, they have won for their declining years a modern home with convenient surroundings and a competence which will insure for them comfort and contentment. May many more happy years be theirs
