    • Newspaper Article - Wednesday, March 1, 1905 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Their Golden Wedding - Mr. and Mrs. Seamans Entertain in Honor of Their Fiftieth Wedding Anniversary - It was in the winter of fifty-five when Rev. A. Blakesley, of Pineville, was called to the door of his rural home and found a young man and young woman who sought his aid in making them one. It was the national holiday set apart to honor the birthday of the father of our country. The ministerial function was performed and Mr. and Mrs. Seamans were introduced to the clergyman's wife and they made their journey eastward to the settlement now known as Ricard where they had a house in readiness for living the happiest days known to the human race, their first housekeeping. Life was spread out before them nearly all was in the future. They remained about the eastern part of the county a few years and afterwards moved to Adams where they spent a few years. It was there their firstborn came to cheer the home and it was there the hand of death came to shadow that home by the removal of the firstborn son. Another son was born there and some forty-five years ago they removed to the town of Albion where they resided until about twenty-three years ago when they moved to this village where they have since resided. During their residence in Albion, one son and two daughters were born and it was while there that Mr. Seamans responded to the call to go into the service of his country, and as he went he left in the home a wife and three small children which was one of the many circumstances of that nature which were so numerous in the land. The celebration of the golden wedding took place at their home in Maple Avenue, Wednesday afternoon, February 22, at three o'clock. The home was pleasantly decorated with flowers and flags and all seemed to take on the aspect of delight, even golden pleasure we might call it. Mr. and Mrs. Seamans received their friends in the south parlor and as guests were assembling Miss Nina Seamans, granddaughter of the host and hostess, rendered several piano selections. At half past four the company was called to order and letters of regret we are read from several who regretted their inability to be present and participate in the unusual event, among which, was a letter from Lawson R. Muzzy, which was accompanied by a poem. This was read and all enjoyed it very much. Mr. Muzzy was in the same company in the Army with Mr. Seamans and they have ever held a very close friendship for each other. Rev. S. E. Brown was then called on for a few remarics and he responded with his usual earnest and appropriate words after which he offered a brief prayer. And Mr. Seamans spoke briefly of the pleasure his wife and himself were experiencing and said they were ready to start in another fifty year journey. The wedding supper was served by the children and grandchildren assisted by Misses Helen Potter, Mabel Hardie and Mabel Barber, nieces of Mr. and Mrs. Seamans. Mr. and Mrs. Seamans were pleasantly remembered with many beautiful gifts, among which was a framed picture of members of Post Butler, of which organization Mr. Seamans has been Commander and is now serving as Chaplain. The picture contained, besides the likenesses of the veterans, large figures. "1855" and "1905" printed in gold and between them a mile post in gold, with the inscription "50 miles from" and below the picture was a set of resolutions passed by the Post. Other gifts were gold and silver articles, a handsome chair, &c. Guests from out of town were Mrs. Juliette Ainsworth, Mrs. Seamans' sister, Sandy Creek; Mr. E. G. Potter, Miss Helen Potter, Orwell, Mrs. Potter being unable to come; Mr. and Mrs. D. W. Dingman, Richland; Mrs. Emma Shepard, Mrs. Adelle Hale, Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Seanians, Altmar. Though Mr. Seamans is 76 and his bride 68 they enjoy excellent health and hold the place in their home and community so long occupied by them. They were favored with the presence of their four children, Clayton E. and Byron G. Seamans, Mrs. Minnie Seamans Peck and Mrs. Ritta Seamans Parker, and five grandchildren, Ruth and Nina Seamans, Clayton and Edward Parker and Willis Peck.

Miss Carrie Allen presided at the organ, soon the groomsman, Mr. J. G.

The bridal party stood beneath a bell of flowers while the words that made the young people husband and wife were impressively spoken. Hearty congratulations followed from nearly one hundred guests and these were supplemented by a sumptuous repast of four courses that was nicely served and greatly enjoyed. There were many beautiful presents of china and silver, gifts of art, etc. Noticeably among them was a highly complementary letter, containing a check for $25, from Dey Brothers, with whom Mr. Parker holds a responsible position.
