Forty-Fifth Wedding Anniversary Celebrated
The last day of the year 1895 witnesses near Gertrude a tribute to an old citizen, the occasion as was at first supposed the golden wedding of Mr. and Mrs. N.I. Biffle, but it turnes out to be the forty-fifth anniversary of their marriage. The neighbors gathered at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Biffle at dusk, each bringing a bountiful respect. When all were gathered about eighty persons, after prayer all partook of the supper amidst universal good feeling, and spent a pleasant and profitable evening. Mr. and Mrs. N.I. Biffle are well and favorably known in Jack and adjacent counties, and it is sincerely hoped that the 31st of December 1900 will find this worthy couple the subjects of another surprise party.
Mr. and Mrs. N.I. Biffle of Gertrude left 3 April 1899 to visit their daughter, Mrs. D.H. Sweeney of Briscoe County on account of their daughter's health.
N.I. and Emily Biffle were living in the Los Valley community of Jack County in 1902. After the death of Emily, Nathan I. Biffle moves from Jack County to live in New Mexico.
