    Notes 
    • FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF MARRIAGE CELEBRATED
      Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ball, sr., Settled in Elkland Township Before Fire of '71

      The children of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ball, sr., arranged for a gathering at their home in Third Street Friday, when the fiftieth anniversary of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Ball was fittingly celebrated. The couple were presented wih several nice gifts and the day was enjoyed by those in whose honor it was held.

      Among those present were Henry, William and John Ball of this city and Mrs. Wm. Starr of Argyle, the four children of the aged couple, and their families, Mr. and Mrs. H. S. Wickware, Mrs. M. J. McGillvray, Miss Rose, and Rev. H. C. Hayward.

      Mr. and Mrs. Ball were married in Branch county, Michigan, on June 14, 1862. In April, 1871, they came to Elkland township, settling on a farm. They passed through the hardships following the fires of '71 and '81. In the latter they were very unfortunate, having lost both their house and a new threshing machine. This put Mr. Ball "out of business" as he expresses it, and he had to begin life's struggles anew. The family moved to Cass City in the fall of 1888 and Mr. and Mrs. Ball have resided here since.

      Mr. Ball has taken an active interest in politics for many years and has served several terms as constable of Elkland township. He has been an ardent republican for years.
