52 Ancestors #41: Coughlin Golden Anniversary 1949

No Story Too Small has issued a New Year's Challenge: "Have one blog post each week devoted to a specific ancestor. It could be a story, a biography, a photograph, an outline of a research problem — anything that focuses on one ancestor.” 

This blog post is dedicated to a wedding celebration, a mother's note of thanks and advice to "Always stick together".

Windsor Star (original) November 26, 1949

"The celebration dinner was held at the home of their son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs Ernest Moynahan of Marentette avenue who will be celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary the same day."

The reception was held at 1025 Hickory road...."Pouring tea will be Mrs. Mary Brick, Mrs. William Boucher and Mrs. Philip Schwemler."

"They were married by the Rev. Father Roan in Our Lady of Help Church on November 27, 1899."

Here are some photos from that day:
