Golden Wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Philip S. Ripley, of Richmond. On the 28th day of December, 1837, an interested company assembled at the Webster homestead in Sullivan township to witness the ceremony that was to unite Philip S. Ripley and Lorena Webster in the bonds of wedlock. Last Wednesday another interested and very happy company assembled at Mr. Ripley’s residence in Richmond township to congratulate the bride and groom of 50 years ago on the fact that they completed a half-century of happy wedded life. At the wedding half a century ago, 29 persons were present, and of these guests it is remarkable to state that 15 are still living, two of whom--Mrs. E. A. Fish and Mr. Roswell Webster--were with the 48 other guests in attendance at the golden wedding anniversary last week. Not the least happy feature of the occasion was the fact that the seven sons of the aged couple, some of whom had not met since the day, were all present to greet their parents and each other. They were--Hobart Ripley, of Akinsville, Mo.; Homer J. Ripley, now a resident of this borough; Ezra Ripley, of Camden, NY; Volney Ripley, of Richmond township; Roswell C. Ripley, of Sullivan township; Crescen C. Ripley, of Richmond township, and Philander W. Ripley, of Scranton, Pa. In addition to these a son-in-law of Mr. and Mrs. Ripley--Mr. J. B. Rumsey, of Lima, Ohio--was also present. The two daughters of the family have both passed over to the silent majority. There were 12 grandchildren of the venerable couple also present. Several gifts were presented to Mr. and Mrs. Ripley as golden reminders of the occasion, and it is needless to say that the reunion of family and friends was thoroughly enjoyed by all. In this connection it is note that the country has been much indebted to the sons nurtured by Mr. and Mrs. Ripley for valuable services in the hour of need. We have already spoken at length of the extended military service of Tioga county’s new Register and Recorder, and it is a pleasure to call attention to the brilliant career of his elder brother as a Union volunteer. He served his full term of three years without a wound or day of sickness. He was in the battles of Drainsville, Seven Days before Richmond, Second Bull Run, South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Wilderness, Spotsylvania Court House, North Anna, Bethesda Church and Cold Harbor. On the last day of his service, May 31, 1864, his regiment repulsed a furious assault and buried more of the enemy within 20 feet of their rifle-pits than there were men in the regiment, and that night, from 10 to 12, --the last two hours of their three years’ service--the men were advanced as skirmishes to find and develop the enemy’s lines, and were under a hot fire to the last moment. A number of brave fellows there received their discharge just before their term expired. The patriotism of the American volunteer grows in luster the more it is studied. He enlisted, not for pay or pension, but from love of country. He fought and conquered where a mercenary force would have run away and abandoned everything to the tender mercies of an atrocious Rebellion. His country saved, he returned to the pursuits of peace with the same fidelity which held the center at Gettysburg. (Tuesday, January 3, 1888, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)
