Civil War Soldier Has Anniversary-- Mr. and Mrs. Eli Stone Marble of Weston celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on Sunday, November 25, 1923, by an old-fashioned family reunion. They had invited all of their children and grandchildren to be with them on the occasion. Their three children, Mrs. Thomas B. Duling of Newport, NH, Mrs. Frank H. Stearns of Johnson, Vt., and Mrs. Edward A. Bolster of Weston, were present. Of the grandchildren, Carrol E. Miller and wife of Windsor and Herbert E. Duling and wife of Newport, NH, were present. Eight other grandchildren and three great grandchildren had hoped to come but were deterred by the season's first big snow storm which occurred the night before. Mr. Marble was born in Sunderland, Vt., 2 Feb., 1836, and his wife, Mary J., daughter of Simon and Jane Wood of Ellisburg, NY, was born 5 May, 1846. Mr. and Mrs. Marble were married in Pulaski, NY, 25 Nov., 1863. The first six years of their married life was spent in Boston and since then they have made their home in Weston, Vt. Mr. Marble enlisted for service 25 Aug., 1862 in the 11th Massachusetts Light Battery. He joined the Odd Fellows Tremont Lodge of Boston in 1860, and became a charter member of the lodge in Weston. Both Mr. and Mrs. Marble have been long members of the Weston Methodist church, he having been one of the stewards here for some 20 years and she always was interested in any good work the ladies were doing. The wedding anniversary was much enjoyed by all present. Mr. and Mrs. Marble telling many interesting stores and anecdotes of their experiences and observations during their 60 years of wedded bliss. Many useful presents were received by them. Then came a bountiful anniversary dinner with all of the season's best cheer. The big wedding cake had been made in Newport, NH, by their daughter, Mrs. T. B. Duling, and safely brought over the hills and snow drifts. A regular Thanksgiving turkey graced the center of the table. Around these were heaped and spread so many other good things that when the feast was over, all knew they had fared well. The best wishes of all were extended to Mr. and Mrs. Marble with the hope that they may have continued blessings.
