c.1900 Robert Barr

A GOLDEN WEDDING.

Hog Bay, October 24.

Mr. and Mrs. Robert Barr celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their wedding on October 20, when a large party of friends and relatives met at their house to offer congratulations and good wishes. They were also presented with a purse sovereigns, a buggy, and other useful articles.

Mr. and Mrs. Barr were born in Avondale, Scotland, on December 1, 1832, and March 26, 1835, respectively. They were married by the Rev. Alexander Rankin, of the Free Church, Edinburgh on October 20, 1854, and have had 14 children — seven boys and seven girls. One boy and one girl died in infancy, but the remainder are living. Their names are— Andrew Barr, of Dood-lekine (Western Australia); Robert Barr, jun., of Bews; Mrs. William Howard, Hog Bay; Thomas Barr, of Glenorchy (Victoria); Mrs. Peter McDonald, of WildHorse Horse Plain; Mrs, John Blythman, of Nhill (Victoria); John Barr, Salt Lagoon (K.I.); Mrs. J. H. Trethewey, Sydney; William Barr, Salt Lagoon; Gavin Barr, Salt La-goon; Miss Sarah Barr, Doodlekine; and Mrs. John Taylor, Hog Bay. There are 65 living grandchildren, so that the descendants of the worthy pair number 77.

Mr. and Mrs. Barr left Scotland with ten children on August 11, 1874, In the ship St. Vincent, and after a voyage of 84 days landed at Port Adelaide, where Mr. D. Wilson, of Flat Farm, Barabba, a nephew, met them. They spent the first thirteen years after their arrival at Alma, Grace, and Long Plains, and removed to Kangaroo Island 17 years ago. They are in good health, considering their age. Mr. Barr sows his barley by hand and his super phosphate as well, and his crops this year look equal to the best drilled. Mrs. Barr still milks her cows and attends to her household duties, although rather severely affected with rheumatism. One grandson is married and a good percentage of the grandchildren, both boys and girls, are on the verge of matrimony, so that the expectation of another and more numerous generation being in evidence, by the time of the diamond celebration is not unreasonable. In addition to oral congratulations, many messages were received from old friends and unavoidably absent relatives, every member of their numerous family being represented either in person or by letter.
