50th Wedding Anniversary of Corry Couple
Mr. and Mrs. F. O. Howard Quietly Celebrated 50th Wedding Anniversary Saturday – Guests of Nephews on Eastern Trip. Saturday, April 30th, was the fiftieth wedding anniversary of City Commissioner and Mrs. Frank O. Howard, well known and highly respected residents of North Center street. Mr. and Mrs. Howard were married, just a half century ago at Columbus, Pa., and they have resided in this vicinity ever since, living in Corry a goodly portion of the time.  The golden wedding anniversary was spent quietly at the home on North Center street, only a few intimate friends of the highly esteemed couple being aware of the event which Mr. and Mrs. Howard was celebrating. They were paid a visit by Mr. and Mrs. Frank Flanders of Titusville, the former being their nephew, leaving late in the afternoon for Titusville on the first leg of a tour of interesting points in the east as the guest of Mr. Flanders and another nephew, John Babbitt of Grove City.  During their absence, Mr. and Mrs. Howard will visit Harrisburg, Gettysburg, Washington and other points. The journal joins with countless friends and acquaintances in extending congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Howard.

Well Known Citizen Passed Away at Home on North Center Street Last Evening Lived in This Vicinity Entire Life
Frank O. Howard, former city councilman and a well known resident of Corry, died at his home, 211 North Center street, Thursday evening at 11 o’clock. Mr. Howard had been in ill health for the past three years, but his condition was only serious for about four weeks, during which he sank rapidly, his passing late last night not being unexpected.  Born at Columbus, son of the late William and Miranda Howard, the deceased was the last of his family. He had lived in Columbus and Corry his entire life, and was well and favorably known throughout this section. Mr. Howard served as postmaster at Columbus for several years during the administrations of Presidents Cleveland and Harrison. The family moved to Corry in 1898 and for twenty-eight years, Mr. Howard faithfully served as a salesman for Wilcox and Crissey, wholesale grocers. His sales visits took him to many nearby towns and cities, where he had many friends and acquaintances. Mr. Howard retired about four years ago. A former member of City Council, the decedent had long been active in civic circles of the community. He was also prominent in the Masonic fraternity being a member of the Columbus Blue Lodge, which his father assisted to organize, and of the Columbus Royal Arch Chapter and Clarence Commandery, Knights Templar, of this city. Mr. Howard was also an active member of the United Commercial Travelers for a number of years.  He is survived by his wife and several nephews and nieces. Funeral services in his memory of the highly respected citizen will be held from the late home on North Center street, Monday afternoon at 2 o’clock. Burial will be made in West Lawn cemetery at Columbus, where the Masonic fraternity will have charge of the committal services.
