The following newspaper article was extracted from the Chariton Courier, Friday, July 3, 1885, Page 2, Column 4:
One of the most pleasant days of our sojourn in this section was spent last Sunday at Mr. Jacob Shively’s. Mrs. Shively celebrated her 55th birthday and her son, George, his 25th, both being on the same day. Mrs. Shively, assisted by her daughters, Mrs. Grisham, and Misses Maggie and Josephine, gave us one of the finest dinners it was ever our lot to assist in devouring. Nothing fine, but everything good, as only Mrs. S. knows how to prepare. A few of the neighbors were invited, among them James Cuddy and daughter, Miss Dora Wilhoit, Chris Noll and wife and daughter, James Robinson and wife, Lou Wells, wife and sister, Wm. Latham and family, John Shively, son and brother; Thos. Shively, son and brother; Lou Wright, brother-in-law, and wife. Plenty of refreshments of all kinds were in abundances, especially in the shape of wit and humor, furnished by John Goll, whom we forgot to mention above. We think John was the busiest one in attendance, flying around like a kite without a caudal appendage, but after dinner he seemed to have gotten bullast enough to hold him level and he sailed off nicely. Messrs. Binks and Walcott, of Lewis’ Mill, were in attendance also. Everybody seemed to enjoy themselves to their utmost capacity. Mr. Wilkerson (the never to be forgotten Pat) being so overcome with excitement in anticipation of such a good time, had to give up to Miss Chile, to whom he devoted his entire attention to the great discomforture of Miss Maggie. Mr. Noll got so full of celebration that he has been confined to his room ever since – 46 glasses will confine most any one.
