Duroe, Francis J. and Christina 40th Anniversary 1963
Duroes Feted At Open House
On 40th Anniversary Sunday
There are 2 photos in this article that I hope to be able to post in the future. Under the second photo of their children and their families: It reads: Among those present was the couple's son, his wife and twin children from Plattsburg, NY.
Mr. and Mrs. Francis J. Duroe were feted Sunday, Oct. 27, at an open house in honor of their 40th wedding anniversary in their home, Morris R.D. About 150 were present.
Francis J. Duroe and Christina Cranston were married Oct. 27, 1923 at Newburgh by her uncle, Rev. George M. Cranston. All their married life has been spent in the Town of New Lisbon. Mr. Duroe is a farmer, and Mrs. Duroe teaches fifth grade in Morris Central School. They have two children, Mrs. Frances Jane Gobel of Apalachin, a son, John Cranston Duroe of Plattsburgh, and four grandchildren.
The occasion was arranged by their children and Mr. Duroe's sisters, the Misses Eliza and Ruth Duroe, Norwich. Several of their friends assisted in serving.
Guests came from Binghamton, East Guilford, Laurens, Otego, Walton, Mt. Vision, East Elmhurst, New Berlin, Endicott, Liverpool, Endwell, West Winfield, Apalachin, Plattsburgh, Norwich, Garrattsville, Gilbertsville, New Lisbon and Morris.
The Duroes received flowers, cards, besides other gifts and money.
Addendum: You can see their marriage writeup in this collection also.
This is from the Mary Boice Gale collection. I can almost guarantee she was one of the people from East Guilford and was helping with the serving since she was friends with the family.
