Springfield Couple Married Sixty Years
On Dec. 31, 1868, Augustine W. Stickney of Hartford, a bronzed veteran back from the battlefields of the Civil war, was married to Mary Jane White of Braintree, by Rev. N. M. Williams in Methuen, Mass., and Monday, just 60 years from that date, scores of friends, and relatives gathered at the Stickney home in Springfield and assisted them in recalling the occasion.
Fully 100 persons, from Springfield and surrounding towns, greeted Mr. and Mrs. Stickney between 2 and 5 o'clock and remembered them generously with gifts. The reception was arranged by their son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Harry C. Stickney, who make their home with the aged couple. Mrs. Stickney was assisted by Mrs. E. M. Burditt and Mrs. Bert Proctor. Another son, Dr. Henry Ladd Stickney, director of the U. S. Veterans' hospital at Rutland Heights, Mass., was also present with his wife.
Mr. and Mrs. Stickney have lived in Springfield for 56 years. For 45 years he conducted a blacksmith shop. During the Civil war he served as a member of Company B, 18th New Hampshire Infantry, and during his period of service was present at the evacuation of Petersburg. He is a charter member of Jarvis post, G.A.R., and one of the five surviving members of the post that at one time had over 160 men in its roll. Both Mr. and Mrs. Stickney are members of Ramona chapter, Order of Eastern Star, who remembered them during the day and Springfield post, American Legion, sent flowers.
Mr. Stickney is 81 and Mrs. Stickney, 82. Both have preserved their good health to a remarkable degree.
