    • from a scrapbook at the Linesville Historical Society:
      HARMONSBURG
      A large company of friends and relatives gathered at the home of Mr. A. Dudley, last Wednesday, to celebrate the 50th anniversary or golden wedding of Rev. and Mrs. A.R. Teats. There was nearly 100 persons in attendance and was indeed a very enjoyable occasion. An elegant dinner was served, reminding us that this was a land of plenty, after which a program was rendered consisting of songs, prayer, and appropriate addresses were made by Rev. H.A. Teats, of Rouseville, Pa.,Rev. Douglass of Conneautville, and Rev. Clemmons of Linesville, in which the life of this venerable couple was reviewed, referring to a life of active work struggles and trials, of ministerial life and the satisfaction in old age of a life well spent in the Master's cause. Then Rev. Douglass, in behalf of the company assembled, presented Father Teats with a package containing ten dollars, showing the love and esteem in which they are held by their neighbors and friend. The whole company then joined in singing. There's a land that is fairer than day, and together repeating the Lord's prayer closing with congratulations at the bride and groom over their joys in reaching, the 50 milestone in married, life, and with many a "God bless you," the company departed for their homes feeling that the day had been well spent.
