SINCE 1910

It was back on September 5, 1910 that Hattie Freeman said "I do" to John T. Sexton. Since then the twosome have travelled thousands of miles together, weathered the storm of a depression, reared three children, and made some friends. In all, it's been a good life together. Now Hattie, who has been in Rebekah Lodge for 50 years, and John, who joined the Odd Fellows in 1912, are being honored by these lodges in Pleasanton . . a tribute to a Golden Wedding Anniverary. Source: The Times, Pleasanton, California; September 7, 1960, Page unknown; Transcribed by Vikki Rubiales, 14 Jun 2011
