"OVER SIXTY YEARS:: Mrs. and Mrs. McGlathery Will Celebrate a Remarkable Anniversary; During Forty Years of His Long Life the Husband Has Read The Inquirer,"
Mr. and Mrs. James McGlathery will celebrate the sixty-second anniversary of their wedding this evening at their home on South Broad street. The old people were married at Old Swedes Church and then they were 23 years old. Their married life has been a most happy one and even to this day they are enjoying good health. However, Mrs. McGlathery is rather feeble and for that reason the wedding will be a very quiet one.

Both Mr. and Mrs. McGlathery are both of good old Revolutionary stock. Mr. McGlathery's ancestors and descendants have fought in every war of the country and at the present time he has two grandsons fighting with the army in the Philippines. He received from them yesterday morning a copy of a paper published in Manila.

Until the other day[,] Mr. McGlathery was priding himself on the fact that he and his wife were the oldest married couple in the city. Then he heard that there was a couple who had been married sixty-three years. In speaking of his old age yesterday[,] Mr. McGlathery said that he had been married for more than forty years. 'The morning Inquirer and I are old friends," said Mr. McGlathery," I have always used it to advertise for help and I find I get the best girls through The Inquirer; in fact, the trouble is the ones I got were so good that they off and got married.'

The McGlatherys came to this country soon after William Penn and settled near Norristown. Mr. McGlathery's grandfather was Matthew McGlathery, who made gun carriages for the continental Army, and had a narrow escape from capture when the British invited Philadelphia. A painting of the old man now hangs in Carpenter's Hall. His father [? George McGlathery] fought in the War of 1812, and in the Civil War his son served as an ensign in the navy. Mr, McGlathery himself was on the original Union Volunteer Refreshment Committee, and is now one of three surviving members. His grandsons, Edward and Joseph Hincken, took part in the war with Spain and are now chasing Aguinaldo in the Philippines. Mrs. McGlathery was Miss Elizabeth Houseman, the daughter of Daniel Houseman."
