Full Text

Mr. and Mrs. W.G. Copeland, Elizabeth St., on Monday observed the 50th anniversary of their wedding. Owing to the illness of Mrs. Copeland, however, the event was celebrated very quietly. A turkey dinner was served to the immediate family and close relatives. The dinner table was beautifully decorated with flowers and centred with a three-tiered wedding cake. During the afternoon and evening many friends called to extend their good wishes and many floral gifts and cards were received. Mr. and Mrs. Copeland were married at Horning's Mills on November 15, 1893, by the late Rev. C.J. Miles. Following their marriage they lived near Stayner until 1900, then near Collingwood till 1920, when they came to Grimsby. The bridesmaid, Mrs. Eli Brillinger, of Stayner, and groomsman, George Vickers, of Collingwood, are still living but were unable to attend Monday. They have two daughters, Miss Etta Copeland and Mrs. Clarence Lewis, and one grandson, William Lewis, of Grimsby. Three sons died when infants. Among the out-of-town guests was Mrs. J.A. Wilson, of Brampton, a sister of Mr. Copeland.
