          On Sunday, the 27th day of November [1892], Mr. & Mrs. James Claton celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their wedding at their home, 630 Barnett avenue, their children all being present and eleven of the grandchildren, three being absent. One of the great grandchildren was present and two absent. J. G. Claton, the oldest son, living in Caldwell county, Missouri, Amanda E. and her husband, D. V. Cox,  Mary N. and her husband, G. A. Smith,   L.A. Claton and Miss Alla M. Claton,  all live in the city.  Ida C. and her husband, Rev. A. H. Boyd, live in London, Osage county, Kansas.  Mrs. Claton's brother, A. J. Guile and wife, and R. L. Guile, another brother, all of Drakeville, Iowa, were present. Mr. & Mrs. Conca, of Kansas City, Kansas, Miss Lizzie and Jennie Huff, of Kansas City, Missouri, friends, were present.  Mr. & Mrs. Claton received a number of valuable presents that they highly appreciate, and the donors will ever be held in grateful remembrance by them.  This is the fourth golden wedding that has occurred in Mrs. Claton's family, three of her brothers having celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary prior to this time.  Mr. & Mrs. Claton were married in Indiana and subsequently went to Illinois where they resided until they came to Kansas, some sixteen years ago.  Mr. Claton's first vote for President was cast for James K. Polk, and his last for Grover Cleveland.  He is personally acquainted with Vice-President-elect Steveson and voted for him for Congressman three times.  Both Mr. & Mrs. Claton are well preserved, enjoy good health, are at peace with all the world and are living in the enjoyments of the evening of life.  Their friends unite with the Herald in wishing them many happy returns of their marriage.
