Macomber 50th Wedding Anniversary

The Naples Record, 12 February 1876.

Canadice - The festivities of a golden wedding, happen to a person but once in a life time. Our town has been visited by such an event, Mr. Cyrus Macomber and Jane his wife, being the honored couple.

On the 26th of January, a goodly number of neighbors and relatives assembled to rejoice with the aged couple on their 50th wedding anniversary. We noticed among those present their son, Shepherd Macomber, and his wife and children, their daughter, Mrs. Volney Brown and family, Mrs. H. Hick and family, the granddaughter Miss Eva Stoddard; also brothers of the bride, Robert and Thomas Callester and wives of Mich. We also noticed David Stacy and wife, Job Stacy and wife, Geo. W. Sharpsteen and wife, J. Coykendall and wife, Elias Sleight and wife, C. Wemmet and wife, S. R. Hickok and family, Geo. Bailey and family, and many others whose names we did not learn. The company numbered 76 persons and the house was full to overflowing.

Appropriate addresses were made by Revs. Geo. Slaysmann of Hemlock, Rev. Hobbs, Springwater and Rev. Robert Hancock - the whole interspersed with fine songs by H. Hickok with Prof. Hecker at the organ.

After an intellectual feast of this nature, the vast company sat down to tables groaning under the load of good things prepared for the occasion, and after the hungry nature, again the song and music enlivened the sweet intercourse of the social time - rendering this the pleasantest occasion of one’s life.

Mr. Cyrus Macomber and Miss Jane Callester were married Jan. 26th, 1826; he is now 73 years old, and she 69. They have lived on the same farm in the town of Canadice since they were married, and by frugality and economy have amassed a competency. Mrs. Macobmer had the misfortune to lose her eyesight about eleven years ago, but being a dutiful Christian of 55 years standing, has been able to accept the visitation with resignation and cheerfulness. Living as they do, loved by children and relatives, respected and honored by friends and neighbors, with well anchored hopes they look forward calmly for the summons that calls them to the golden wedding and feast prepared for the faithful, in their bright future.

The Obituary of Cyrus Macomber

1805 - 12 April 1882

The Livonia Gazette, 21 April 1882

Cyrus Macomber of Canadice died at the home of his daughter, Miss Hickok, Tuesday of last week.

The Obituary of Jane Callester Macomber

1807 - 21 January 1891

From the Livonia Gazette, 20 February 1891

Mrs. Jane Macomber, who died at her home in Canadice Jan. 21, was born at Palatine, Montgomery county, Nov. 11, 1806. She removed with her parents to this place in 1815, and for seventy-five years resided near the place of her death. She was the oldest of a family of eleven, of whom two survive her.

One brother, Robert Collister, died one day before her, near Lansing, Mich., aged eighty-one years. Early in life she gave her heart to God, and in His strength pursued a consistent Christian course, enduring with remarkable fortitude and patience her many severe afflictions. She died peacefully, and safely awaits the coming of Him whose voice will call the dead from their graves, and at His hand receive eternal life.

The Rev. M. E. Andrews of Springwater spoke words of comfort at her funeral.
