Mr. & Mrs. Stephen Balliet

THE OHIO LIBERAL:  14 November 1883


WOODEN WEDDING.  One of the most enjoyable events of the season was the 5th. anniversary of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Balliet at their residence, about three miles south-east of the city, on the evening of the 1st. of November.  Although the night was a little cold, sixty invited guests were in attendance.  The event will long be remembered by all who were there with feelings of sincere pleasure, as Mr. and Mrs. Balliet know just how to entertain their friends.  A remarkable feature of the occasion was the fact that four generations were represented at the supper table.  The table fairly groaned with the good things with which the inner man was refreshed in due time.  Good music was furnished by Miss Emma Balliet, as organist, accompanied by violin, etc.  Presents were beautiful and useful, among which were and elegant marble-top center table, by James Campbell and family, Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Balliet, Mr. and Mrs. Philip Kyner and Mr. and Mrs. W. Kyner;  silver castor, by Sol. Balliet and family and Mr. & Mrs. Snyder;  camp rocking chair from Mr. and Mrs. Peter Fault;  marble-top Bible stand and chromo from Mr. and Mrs. Sam Balliet, Mr. and Mrs. George Lenhart, Mr. and Mrs. Taylor Au and Mr. and Mrs. George Mentzer;  beautiful parlor lamp from Mr. and Mrs. James Balliet;  large chromo from David Gates and family;  marble-top Bible stand from Mr. and Mrs. C.B. Gomwer and Mr. and Mrs. R.A. Pettit;  splendid mirror, ebony-wood frame from Mr. and Mrs. W.L. Owings;  beautiful chromo from Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Dirr;  handsome bracket from Mrs. Catherine Bell;  elegant double picture frame from Mr. and Mrs. George Race;  and a lovely present by Mr. and Mrs. Elzy Sheets.
