1834. GOLDEN WEDDINC. 1884.
The Golden Wedding, or tho
fiftieth anniversary of marriage, is
an event which comparatively few
married couples live to celebrate, and
because so rare is especially note
worthy. Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Oat,
Scnr., have had tho singular good
fortune to reach this period of life
in good health, and with all the
faculties of body and mind well
preserved and vigorous. Mr. Oat
was born September 25th, 1809, at
Philadelphia, and is therefore
seventy-five years of age. Miss E.
R. Crocker (Mrs. Oat) was born
'September 7th, 1815., at New Lon
don, Connecticut, and is now in her
sixty-ninth year. They wore married
on December 17th, 1834, in Now
Yoik city, fcy the Rev. Mr. Chase.
Mr. Oat arrived in theso Islands,
April, 1855, followed in June of tho
samo year by Mrs. Oat and family.
Ho at once started sailmaking, a
business which he has successfully
carried on ever since. They have
had nlno children, four of whom uro
living. Joseph M, Jr., tho well known
and cntci prising stationer and news
dealer, Fred B. , Secretary and Trcas
urcr of tho Pacific Navigation Co,,
John M. who carries on the sail
making business, and Louis A., who
is in business at Norwich, Conn.
The last named made a visit to theso
Islands about a year ago.
After fifty years of married life,
bearing together the sorrows and
sharing-alike the joys of existence,
these two, so long united as one,
still live, blessed with peace and
comfort, and look for many happy
days yet to come. Tho event was
celebrated last cvenlug, at their
residence on Punchbowl street, by
a reception which lasted from G.30
to 10 o'clock. Invitations had been
issued to a large number of friends,
and throughout tho evening there
was one continual stream to offer
their congratulations. Approaching
the house tho scene was one of
splendor. The trees were de
corated with palm leaves and
from tho branches beautifully
colored lanterns were strung. A
row of lanterns was also hung across
tho gateway. The verandah was
covered with lanterns, giving a very
pretty effect. On the makal sido a
large lanai was erected, the inside
of which was most tastefully deco
rated with flags and evergreens. In
the centre was a floral dome from
tho summit of which hung a large
lantern, beneath which on the floor
a music box played pretty airs. Tho
front parlor, where Mr. and Mrs.
Oat received their numerous friends,
was one mass of evergi ecus, dotted
here and thero with golden stars,
the work of many friends. At one
corner a green floral marriage bell,
covered with golden colored flowers,
was suspended, and under this the
venerable couple received. Mr.
and Mrs. J. M. Oat, Jr., received
the guests at the front entrance and
conducted them into the parlor.
Ono of the pleasant features was tho
reading of a poem by Mr. J. M.
Oat, Jr., written expressly for tho
occasion by Mrs. B. F. Dillingham.
A number of very handsome- pre
sents were displayed on a table in
one corner of the parlor, consisting
of various articles of gold anil sil
verware, also a card receiver niado
out of wood fifty years old. His
Ex. ,Tno. O. Dominis kindly sent the
Royal Hawaiian Baud around, which
was a total surprise to the family.
It played some most beautiful se
lections throughout the evening.
At 10 o'clock most of the invited
guests had taken their departure,
and as a finale the band played
" Home Sweet Home." The whole
affair was one long to be remembered.
