  of 1094

My Great Grandparents, Frank J. Shriver and Anna (Berger) Shriver celebrated their tenth anniversary at the their home outside of Phila. in 1906. The Philadelphia Press newspaper published an article on Sunday, 1 July 1906, "100 Society Folk at Tenth Wedding Anniversary Fete", regarding this celebration. This is part of the article:

"Ellendale, the handsome country home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank J. Shriver, at Broad Axe, near Ambler, was the scene last evening of a monster lawn fete given by Mr. and Mrs. Shriver in honor of their tenth wedding anniversary.

Mr. Shriver, a prominent business man of Germantown, formerly resided there, and among the guests were more than one hundred of Germantown's fashionable folk. The visitors were conveyed from Ambler to Ellendale in coaches, and were entertained on the lawn with music and a supper, brilliant electrical illuminations adding to the charm of the surroundings."
