NOONAN - HOGAN         MR. AND MRS. JAS. NOONAN CELEBRATE GOLDEN WEDDING – Were Married in St. John’s Church by Rev. Father McDonagh, Jan. 10, 1959 – FAMILY ALL PRESENT – ‘Tis a long cry from 1859 to 1909, but the space was spanned successfully and with constant faith in each other, by Mr. and Mrs. James Noonan, of D’Arcy Street.  On the 10th of January, 1859, in St. John’s Church, Perth, James Noonan was married by Rev. Father John McDonagh, to Margaret, daughter of Mr. Daniel Hogan, of Bathurst, and on Monday of this week the golden wedding anniversary was duly celebrated.  ‘Tis an event few are privileged to enjoy, and the distinction that has come to Mr. and Mrs. Noonan is all the more to be recognized.  Fifty years is the best part of our natural life.  In that great span are crowded many joys and many sorrows, many failures and many successes.  Yet they make up life, and few of those who experience them wish they had never tasted life.  Life loomed large and bright to the two elderly residents on the morning of the 10th of this month fifty years ago, and it is only natural that the days events should be remembered and recounted by the principals and their friends who were present.  The ceremony, of course had its after re’ebration? Then in vogue, and the hanging of the crane was honoured in thronging merriment and just.  The assistants in the wedding fifty years ago were Miss Catherine Tovey, daughter of the late James Tovey, now Mrs. Michael Murphy, Drummond Street east, as bridesmaid, and Mr. James Brady, of Bathurst, groomsman, and they were among the honoured guests present on Monday’s festive occasion.  The good father who celebrated the nuptial mass has long since gone to his reward.  Mr. Richard Hogan, of Bathurst, who played the old fashioned fiddle fifty years ago for the young couple and their friends was present on Monday and again displayed his skill with the low?, taking keen delight in playing for one set, formed of the bride and groom, bridesmaid and groomsman, Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Brady and Mr. and Mrs. James Balderson, all of whom are relatives of the principals and were present at the wedding.  Other relatives present then and now are Mrs. Leacy?, town, Mrs. Richard Hogan and Mrs. Peter Noonan, Bathurst, D.R. Noonan and Michael McCabe, town.  It is needless to say that the spirit of Monday’s occasion? Was entered into as freely as the primary event on the ? day.  Guests were present for many quarters? And added? And words of respect and esteem to the ? couple.  Mr. and Mrs. Noonan are natives of Bathurst, and for thirty one? Years, living? At lot 17 in the ? concession, Mr. Noonan’s residence?.  In 18?, they move to Glen Tay, and seven? Years ago they came to Perth to reside.  He was a successful farmer, but he will be best remembered by the community as a cattle drover, in which occupation he is still engaged.  Even with the weight of years he carries, it is a difficult task for him to walk in rom? Ellis? Or Manion? On a cool summer’s evening.  Mr. Noonan had the advantage of a good common school education, was diligent in his studies, and although obliged to work hard became? Master of much useful information and knowledge.  He took a deep interest in municipal affairs, and served his township in its council for twenty years.  He was Reeve and Deputy Reeve, and as such a member of the County Council, sitting at the last session of the moved? Council of Renfrew and Lanark.  He was county Warden in 1887.  Mr. Noonan was and is still a sucker for district? Procedure according to municipal law, and always regarded the electors’ confidence so expressed at the polls as a sacred trust.  Of late years he has served the county as auditor.  Politically he is a Conservative and a staunch supporter and worker for Hon. John Haggart.  Six sons and one daughter survive, and the grandchildren number about thirty-five.  The family are John and James, butchers, town; Richard T., clerk of Burgess; William, blacksmith at Balderson; Peter, miner?, in North Burgess; Daniel, C.P.R. brakeman, Smiths Falls, and Mrs. William DeWitt, of Elliott.
