Cherrington, John H. and Donnally, Rachel

50th Anniversary
Celebrated by Mr. and Mrs. John H. Cherrington

     A pleasant surprise was sprung on Mr. and Mrs. John H. Cherrington of Island Side, by
their children to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary the evening of May 1, 1917. Light refreshments were served and a social evening was spent by all.
     Unto them three children were given, one son and two daughters and are all living, and
their friends wish that they all live so faithful that when life is 'oer, as an unbroken family they will meet
on the other shore. A.C.M.
     Mr. and Mrs. Cherrington are among the finest old people of Gallia county and a legion
of friends and acquaintances will wish them many more happy anniversaries.

[Note: John H. Cherrington married Rachel Donnally May 1, 1867 in Gallia County.]
