When the average life expectancy in the year 1900 was about 50 years old, to be married for 60 years appears to have been quite an accomplishment. At Christmastime, 1900,
Monday, Dec. 17, was the 60th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Kanouse, in all probability one of the oldest wedded couples in Livingston county. The most of their married life has also been spent in the county. Both are able to attend to the duties of their home and are enjoying as good health as could be expected by people of their age.
This ringing endorsement of this couple was found in the local newspaper at the end of the year.
