Silver wedding.

Twenty-fifth Anniversary of the Marriage of Rev. E. Harling and wife.

[A longer article than the one that appeared in the last issue—Edwin and Mary were married December 27th, 25 years ago.] January 14, 1881 obit.NicholsonMaj.shtml Page 1: Nicholson, Maj Illness of Maj. Nicholson. We regret to state that this old citizen of Bartow is now lying unconscious, and his death is expected at every moment. He received a fall last April, since which time he has been on the decline. Last Thursday his bowels became disordered and he has been prostrated ever since and unconscious since Saturday. On the 3rd of June Maj. Nicholson would be ninety-seven years old could he survive. He was never married. Pryor to the war he was in good circumstances, but since then he has lived upon a government pension as an old soldier of the war of 1812. He has ever been beloved and respected by all who knew him.

Maj. Nicholson has resided in the family of Mrs. Hunphreys for forty-one or two years. That kind lady has taken care of him to the best of her ability and the means at hand. We fear we will be compelled to chronicle his death in our next. May the old veteran go down beneath the waves of life gently and peacefully.
