Twentieth Anniversary

"It is pleasant to be remembered" Thus thought Mr. and Mrs. Dwight W. Younglove on Friday evening when a party of their friends took possession of their residence on Church street, the occasion being their China wedding anniversary. Both host and hostess were remembered with pretty pieces of China. The evening was pleasantly spent with music, singing and guessing the total number of ages present. Judge Craghill and J.B. Brown guessed the nearest to being correct in summing up the ages, which proved to be 85 years.

At 10:30 all sat down to enjoy a savory lunch, and it was a late hour when good nights were said, all wishing the genial host and hostess many happy anniversaries.

The late Dwight Younglove came to California in 1864 and by dint of a closed application, amassed a fortune. He was born in Great Barrington Massachusetts. He leaves a widow, two sons, and a sister to mourn his loss. He had been unfortunate in business in the last five years which prayed on his mind, and no doubt hastened his death. He served in C and D Companies of the 5th Wisconsin during the war.
