From a 1920 Toledo, Ohio newspaper:
"GOLDEN WEDDING CELEBRANTS CLING TO OLD-STYLE DANCING
"Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Petee, observing their golden wedding anniversary, endorse the old-fashioned dancing steps. Though not prejudiced against the 1920 style of cavorting, these Toledo residents insist that jazz never can win them over. "The old turns and glides have helped to keep us young," they testify. Mr. Petee is 76 and his wife 74. Of ten children, four are living. They attended a celebration Sunday in the home of a daughter, Mrs. George Hogel. There are five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Mr. and Mrs. Petee were married in Flint, Michigan (1870) and have been living in Toledo forty years."
This was to be their last anniversary. Samuel died later that same year, Mary died nine years later. To my grandmother, my mother and her brothers and sisters, they were known as "Mémé" and "Pépé" - French for one's own grandma and granddad.
