The 50th Wedding Anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Otho B. Morton,
Crestline Couple was held December 12. They were married in Crestline
December 12, 1894, by Rev. Dunbar or the Methodist Church. The
brides parents were Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Molder, near Shelby. Both
are in good health, Mr. Morton works as a night watchman at the
Burch Corporation and worked for the P.R.R. prior to that time.
The country home of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Arter, east of Crestline
was the scene of a festive gathering Labor Day, not as a Labor
Day celebration but a celebration given in honor of their son
C. Park Arter, who arrived Back Home early Saturday
morning from oversea service.
Now Park had planned a surprise for the home folk, by arriving
one week sooner than he informed them that he would in order
to get home before he was expected, but his plans were shattered,
by a strange concurrence, that his parents arrived at Camp Sherman
before he did and they were in hearing distance as his name was
called. Through their great anxiety to meet him his suprise was
called off . While both agree that surprise each intended for
the other was baffled, a joyous meeting at the Camp was the result
and a grand good time at the home Monday where the Welcome
Home reception was given by more than one hundred of his
family and friends.
While there was some disappointment, Dame Rumor had given Park a pretty French girl for his wife, but he failed to verify the rumor, and his friends think the little French girl was lost at sea on the return voyage home, and the Crestline girls may yet have hope. However, we leave that to Park and wish him success through life, even as he was successful in battle.
With memories of the homeland still vivid in their minds,
