Parshalls Celebrate 40th Anniversary in Independence Day Style

From the June 14, 1906 Skidmore New Era, page 1:

Will Celebrate the Fourth.

Mr. and Mrs. James Parshall will celebrate their fortieth wedding anniversary on July 4th by giving a picnic at their home in Union Valley. There is an abundance of shade and these good people desire all their friends to come and enjoy the day at their home. Uncle Jim says he will furnish ice cream and lemonade for all. Don’t forget to fill your baskets and go with the intention of spending a pleasant day with this worthy couple.
