Surrounded by their children, MR. and MRS. J.M. PICKERING last Thursday celebrated at their home in north Leon, a rare event, the sixtieth anniversary of their wedding, something which very few couples ever live to celebrate. MR. and MRS. PICKERING were married in Marion County, Ohio, May l7, l863, and two years later came to Iowa and located at Leon, residing here for 58 years. They have been blessed with ten children, five of whom are living; LEE and FRANK and MRS. HARRY CRAGO, of Leon; MRS. HAL GATES, of Sterling, Colorado; and CLYDE, of Cainsville, Mo. There are but few people who have lived in Leon longer, and their many friends extend congratulations on this occasion with the wish they may be spared to enjoy their companionship for many years to come.
