AND MRS. J. ELMER GRAY of Towanda Mr. and Mrs. J.

Elmer Gray Note 50th Anniversary; 300 Fete Couple TOWANDA, June 20-Mr. and Mrs. J. Elmer Gray of 3 Mulberry street, Towanda, celebrated their Golden wedding anniversary yesterday beginning with a special Mass at the SS. Peter and Paul's church and a breakfast at the David Wilmot hotel and ending with an "open house" reception at their home throughout the afternoon and evening.

Actually, the 50th anniversary falls on Tuesday, June 21, but the observance were planned for yesterday as an accommodation for the large number tives and friends of Mr. and Mrs. Gray who attended from several states, including California. Approximately 300 persons participated in the various observances, marking the occasion as possibly one of the lar. gest of its kind ever held in this vicinity.

The honored couple was presented with many gifts. Each of the guests was escorted to the beautiful gardens in the rear of the Gray home, where refreshments were served. The anniversary served as a reunion the family, their children most of their fond grandchildren being present. Four brothers and all three sisters of Mrs. Gray were present, some accompanied by their families, and many relatives of Mr.

Gray were brought together for the first time in years. Also attending the affair were the attendants of Mr. and Mrs. Gray, both of whom are still extremely active. They are Mrs.

John Fleming of Main street, Towanda, the former Miss Mary White, who was bridesmaid, and Edward Mahoney of Powell, a brother of Mrs. Gray, who was best man. The couple was married on June 21, 1899, in the SS. Peter and Paul's church, Towanda, by Rev. J.

J. Corner, pastor. They immediately set up housekeephome where they now reside, Mr. Gray having had the structure completed during the previous year. In the intervening years the home has been modernized, while large adjoining properties have been developed, through the couple's ingenuity, into one of the garden spots of Towanda.

Mr. Gray was born in Springville, Susquehanna county, in 1875 and came to Towanda, where he has since resided, with his family when he years old. The decendant of a sturdy stock of Scotch who settled in Connecticut late in the tury, he claims in his ancestory a great grandfather who is credited with first bringing oxen into Pennsylvania. A brother of this man. Commodore Robert Gray, went down in history for first entering the Columbia river and raising American flag, thus securing the nation's claims on the Louisiana territory and opening up a new shipping industry there.

Mr. Gray learned the upholstering trade as a youth in the Frost furniture factory, but. while still in his teens went with the S. and N. Y.

railroad as a machinist. Several years later he transferred to the Lehigh system, accumulating a total service of 38 years before his retirement in 1940. For many years he was foreman of the Lehigh roundhouse here but went to the Sayre shops when that was discontinued. Following several months of retirement he again resumed activities, becoming an upholster at the King and King furniture store here. where he is presently employed.

Mrs. Gray was Julia Agnes Mahoney who was born on June 22, in Bantry, County Cork, the daughter of a prosperous business man. Several of her aunts and uncles had already come to the United States as did her family when she was 10. moving the vicinity of Powell and Monroeton. She still has a keen memory of Bantry, which she called the key to the Atlantic since its ports could hide the English fleets.

It also thus has protected the Irish neutrality. Both have been extremely active through the years, particularly in work of their church. Mr. Gray is a member of the Sayre lodge, Knights of Columbus and of the Towanda Holy has acted in dan mariociety capacity in many technical problems presented by the parish for its improvement. Mrs.

Gray is a member parish Altar and Rosary society, having served as it president in 1948, and was the founder of the St. Agnes Parents' Guild, which serves as a parent-teachers organization for the parochial schools here. She has been a leading member of the Towanda Garden club for many years. Flowers and church activities have guided the life of the couple for many years. They have identified the two together, especially in the care given their outstanding flower garden, a maze of lanes among beds of many species of rare and costly plants.

focal point of the garden is the shrine they erected years ago in devotion to Our Lady of Lourdes, the structure being made from stones all having deep significane, some coming from friends, others collected on numerous trips they have taken, a few from Ireland, and other family momentos being superimposed in the cement walls. The top portion opens with a glass door, inside of which is a statue of the saint, for whom Mrs. Gray gives many flowers to the church each year. This is accompanied by a frame holding flowers from Bethlehem and several smaller pictures, statues and medals. The shrine was built in 1938, three months before Mr.

and Mrs. Gray lost their only two daughters and the husband of one in an automobile accident. shrine was dedicated to them and has offered much consolation and relief to them during the troubled times following the accident. In addition to these daughters, Mrs. Mary O'Brien and Mrs.

Agnes Ball, who were killed with the latter's husband, Ronald Ball, the couple has two sons, Robert Gray, general manager of the New York State Electric and Gas company branch in Dansville, N. and Dr. John Gray, an optomolygist in Sacramento, California. There are seven grandchildren, including Mrs. Carl R.

Gross, daughter of the late Mrs. O'Brien and Dr. C. S. O'Brien, and Ronald Ball, son of the late Mr.

and Mrs. Ball. Two great grandchildren are Charlene and Jimmy Gross, the children of Mrs. Gross. Members of Mrs.

Gray's own family attending the affair were the brothers, Edward Mahoney of Powell, Dennis Mahoney of Youngstown, Ohio, Michael and Francis Mahoney of Towanda and Sayre, and three sisters. Mrs. Mary Thompson of Mon- roeton, Mrs. Maurice Eddy of Youngstown, Ohio and Mrs. Catherine Vogelsang Dayton, Ohio.

Daniel Mahoney of Springfield, Ohio, was unable to attend the festivities. At SS. Peter and Paul church the 10 o'clock Mass was celebrated by Very Rev. Maurice A. Hughes, who also was observing his last Sunday at the Towanda church before his Barre.

service was largely Barre. The servicewas largely attended by many friends of couple of all faiths, with congregation overflowing the church. The dinner at the David Wilmot hotel was attended by 42 persons. Flowers for the occasion were arranged by Mrs. Robert Wolfe and Mrs.

Leonard Frawley from the gardens of Mrs. Gray. Among those present were Rev. A. P.

Coniff and Father Hughes, the latter giving an informal tribute to the couple and cited them as the ideal example of family life, a trait, he said, which is rapidly becoming rare. Asked regarding the feeling they have toward each other after their half century of wedded life, Mrs. Gray said that they have always trusted each other in judgment, and above all, they refrained from arguments over money matters. In addition to a large number of friends from here, the observations were attended by people from Dansville. N.
