The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, February 4, 1909


Friday, Jan. 26, 1909, was the 50th wedding anniversary of MR. and MRS. C.H.
POST, and on account of the inclement weather, Saturday was the day
celebrated, but owing to the blocked roads, a good many regrets were
received as there were only about twenty who were present. CALVIN H. POST
and MISS CORDELIA A. JOLLEY were united in marriage in Athens Co., Ohio,
near Hibbardville on Jan. 29, 1859, the ceremony being performed by a cousin
of the groom, W.E. POST. They came to this county in the fall of that year,
locating at La Grange, where they lived four years. Then they moved to the
farm in Cedar Township which was their home until 1897 when they moved to
Russell. Nine children were born to this union, six of whom are living.
They are MRS. LILLIAN DOAN, FRED and HARLEY of Cedar Twp., CHAS. of Des Moines, LILLIAN of San Diego, Calif., and MABEL, of Russell. When MR. and MRS. POST came to Iowa they made the journey in a wagon and were a month on
the road. Their experiences in founding a home in that early day were varied and sometimes thrilling, but in spite of the enduring hardships in a new country, they have triumphed over all difficulties and have been successful in their undertakings. This worthy couple has lived in our midst for many years and enjoy the best wishes and respect of a large circle of friends.

At twelve o'clock a sumptuous repast was served to which all present did
ample justice. Many beautiful and valuable presents were received as a
slight token of the high regard in which they are held.
