The Gordons are originally from the Newberne area. '"We've had our differences as all couples do, but we have had a happy fulfilled married life." This statement was made by Mr. and Mrs. Roy Gordon, 917 Gilmore St., Chillicothe, Ohio, who observed their 70th wedding anniversary on Nov. 11. Over 100 people attended the celebration, including cousins Stella Gordon of Newberne and Mr. and Mrs. Bertie Gordon of Cox's Mills. How did they meet? Mr. Gordon remembers, "I had been travel- ing down a road near Newberne, W.Va. It was late in the day and I was hungry. I saw two girls standing in the road in front of a farm house and when I took a closer look at the older of the two, my heart went 'pitter pat.' When I asked for something to eat the elder sent me to the next house. Over my meal there, the gentleman told me the girl I'd talked to was Halite Connolly and her father was planning to marry a neighbor of mine. After their wedding, they planned to move to d= neighbor's farm. "'After they moved in 'next door' I started seeing Mot of Hallie and when she was 17 and I was 25, we married." Mrs. Gordon, now 87, iokingly Mr. and Mrs. said, "They made a national holiday of our wedding," when she is reminded it fells on Veterans' Day. {Nov. 11, 1907). The Cordons have four children, three of whom survive. Their only daughter, Mrs. Brenice Wright, hves in Naples, Fla., and their two surviving sons are Page, 263 Mt. Logan Drive, and Paul, of Springfield. Their eldest son Argyl died three years ago. The 95-year-old Gordon is a retired carpenter and former secre- tary-treasurer of the Citizen Telephone Co. in Coolville, before it merged with four other companies to form the Mid-Continent Telephone Co. He began carpentry when he helped his father and a hired carpenter build a new house. The carpenter hired him to help him after that and he s been doing it ever since. When I came to Ohio I bought a farm in Coolville and turned my full attention to carpentry.

Hallie took over for 11 years. She was 72 when she retired." The spry couple built their own home from the ground up on the Coolville farm. Mr. Gordon made his own cement blocks for the foundation, which he laid himself. Mrs. Gordon laughingly recalls, "tie was working all day and I'd seen him doing the laying of the floorboards and figured I could do it, too.
