The J.W. Ellenwoods Celebrate Their Golden Wedding Anniversary
Golden Wedding congratulations were tendered Mr. & Mrs. J.W. Ellenwood at Open House held for their many friends and relatives all day Tuesday, November 13th, at their New Monterey home, 1301 David avenue. The previous day on the eve of their anniversary the 50 years wedded couple were host and hostess at a family reunion dinner attended by 19 of their children and grandchildren, including three of the four sons and their daughter, with their families. Son and daughter-in-law, Rev. and Mrs. O.L. Ellenwood were back from their evangelistic trip in Alaska, especially for the occasion they came in from Ketchickan. Recent services discharge Robert Ellenwood was also there, with his wife and the two children, Penny and Pamela (the latter three months old). They came from Watsonville. Other members of the family were from San Francisco, Stockton, Monterey. The anniversary honored were presented with many lovely gifts. Thre were family reminiscences a plenty as the host carved the festive turkey, the family gathered about the beautifully appointed lace covered table, centered with an arrangement of bronze chrysanthemums. For the dessert course a replica of the original wedding cake was cut and served with due ceremony – and the next day open house guests shared also this cake, served with punch, coffee and other buffet refreshment. Mr. & Mrs. Ellenwood, peninsula residents for the past 21 years, lived in Pacific Grove until about a year ago. Their son, Rev. Ellenwood, was for some time pastor of the Pentecostal church in this city. The anniversary celebrants were married in Stockton, and had their own ranch there until coming to Pacific Grove. Mr. Ellenwood is a native Californian. Mrs. Ellenwood (illegible)
