Loucks Anniversary, 1914

We believe the couple in the article below are Abraham Loucks (1848-1924) and Mary Ellen Iddings Forney Loucks (1844-1923).  From the February 12, 1914 edition of the Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 4:

Surprise Dinner.

Mr. and Mrs. A. Loucks had not given a thought to what day of the month it was, when Monday, February 9, their children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, nephews and nieces, numbering in all about twenty, began to arrive, uninvited by them at their home.  Then they remembered that thirty-five years ago that day had been their wedding day.

The dining table was stretched its full length and loaded with good things to which all did ample justice when the noon hour came.

Mr. and Mrs. Laucks were the recipients of several very pretty and useful pieces of silverware given in commemoration of the day and surely they could have been no happier on their wedding day than they seemed on their thirty-fifth anniversary.

Needless to say the guests enjoyed the day as thoroughly as did their host and hostess and heartily wished for many, many happy returns of the day.
