Thomas Schooler & Jane Cartwright
The Advocate Tribune newspaper, Indianola, Iowa, Thursday, Sep 22, 1904, p.3
The home of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Schooler was the scene of a golden wedding Sep 19, 1904. It was a happy gathering indeed and everything seemed to be in harmony, the old and young friends mingled together as one, to the number of 48, nine of them having passed the alloted three score years and ten. Mr. Schooler was born in Paxton Scotland Aug 11, 1827; coming to the United States in 1850; after a short stay in Ohio he came to Keokuk, Ia. where he was married to Miss Jane Cartwright, Sept. 16, 1854, by Presbyterian minister Rev. Sneed. Mrs. Schooler was born in Scarborough England, Nov 10, 1837; coming with her parents to Canada in 1840. Thence to Keokuk, Iowa in 1853. Though grey hair mark the passing of the half-century in their happy union both still retain the spirit of truth and love which bound them imseparable fifty years ago. To this union ten children were born, five who have been called to the home above, the other five children and eight grandchildren were all present at the anniversary. Mr. and Mrs. Schooler live where thy have made their home since 1856 on a farm in Warren Co. Iowa, ten miles south of Des Moines and where they are universally loved and respected and where all echo the wish that they may live to celebrate their diamond anniversary.
