THE ADVANCE REPORTER
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.
