Spotlight On...

The spotlight is on a very nice couple who celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary Saturday, February 17th in their home 6 miles south on Highway 71. Mr. and Mrs. Wigley have resided in Scott [County] for the past five years. He is a retired farmer of Yell County. He and Miss Etta Kitchens, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Monroe Kitchens, were united in marriage Feb. 17, 1907 on Mrs. Wigley's 16th birthday, in Southern Home near Booneville in Logan County. To this union were born four sons: Arley of the home, Raymond of Coquilla, Oregon, Herbert of Winston, Oregon and James of Waldron; one daughter, Marie (Mrs. Ted Hudson) also of near Waldron. The couple are still very active and Mr. Wigley is already looking forward to getting his garden out. He says that being able to be outside in the fresh air and sunshine and do things is the secret to their long life. Both have a keen sense of humor and to quote Mr. Wigley, are "like two pet coons." They are members of the Pleasant Hill Primitive Baptist Church. They were surprised Friday night when Mr. and Mrs. Ted Hudson and Mr. and Mrs. James Wigley and family dropped in with a large wedding and birthday cake to help them celebrate their Anniversary and Mrs. Wigley's 77th birthday. They have 17 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren.
