    • NEWSPAPER ARTICLE
      TIPTON, O., COUPLE WILL MARK 65TH ANNIVERSARY OF WEDDING
      .....Paulding, O., March 31.--Sunday will be a special day for Mr. and Mrs. Leven Leeth, of Tipton. It will be their anniversary of 65 years of married life.
      .....Leven Leeth and Louise Shelly were married 65 years ago, in 1884 at the bride's home, north of Payne, in Paulding County. Mr. Leeth who celebrated his 93rd birthday March 17, and Mrs. Leeth who will be 82 June 18, agree that the 65 years have been happy ones.
      .....Mrs. Leeth is a Paulding County native. She was born near Payne, and has lived in the county all of her life. But although Mr. Leeth, one of the oldest residents in Paulding County, was born in Pike County, and lived in Logan County a number of years before he came to live with his family in Harrison Township.
      .....Helped Load Canal Boat. Mr. Leeth still remembers arriving in Paulding County in 1872, when he was 16 years old. The old canal was still being used for freight. However, it was not long before the last boat left Antwerp for the historic last trip. Mr. Leeth was among the crew who loaded that last boat.
      .....The Civil War belongs in the memories of Mr. Leeth's childhood. He remembers the day an official rode up to his parents home to serve draft orders on his father. However, his father followed the custom of the time and paid a bounty for a substitute to fight in his place.
      .....The Leeths have a family of nine children (five boys and four girls) and well over one hundred grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In addition, they claim that this huge family has been increased by the birth of three great-great-grandchildren.
      .....The Leeth children include, John Mathias, at home; Ethel, or Mrs. Frances Maxwell, near Fort Wayne; Charles Henry, West Manchester; Annie, or Mrs. Jonas Brown, Rome City, Ind.; Harry, Fort Wayne; Rhoda, or Mrs. Alfred Baughman, Holly, Mich.; David, of Payne; and Lafayette, Briceton. A daughter, Gertrude Louisa is dead. (Source: Taken from paper in Payne, Ohio 1949)
