Area Couples To Note 50th Anniversaries -
Mr. and Mrs. Floyd B. Brocklebank and Mr. and Mrs. T. Elgin Snyder will be guests of honor next Wednesday, Dec. 10, at an open house in honor of their 50th wedding anniversary to be held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ray E. Brocklebank, Marsh road, Canandaigua.
Mr. and Mrs. Brocklebank and Mr. and Mrs. Snyder will greet their friends and family members from 2 to 5 in the afternoon and from 7 to 9 in the evening. Assisting Mr. and Mrs. Ray Brocklebank with the "open house" plans will be Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Brocklebank's other son, Gerald Brocklebank and Mrs. Brocklebank, and their daughter, Mrs. Bertha Herendeen of Shortsville.
Mr. and Mrs. Brocklebank and Mr. and Mrs. Snyder were married Dec. 10, 1902, in a double ceremony at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Snyder on the West Lake road. It was a cold wintry day with a snow mist in the air. The sleighing was good as the two couples, happily married, left to take the evening train for Buffalo and Canada, where they visited their uncle.
Rev. J. Wallace Webb, pastor of the Canandaigua Methodist church, was the officiating clergyman. The young ladies wore long white batiste dresses with long sleeves and carried white flowers.
Mrs. Brocklebank was the former Miss Ella May Snyder. She was the sister of Torance Elgin Snyder who was marrying his cousin, the former Miss Nora Belle Snyder. Thus the double wedding was a real family affair.
The two couples have always lived in this area and today are in vigorous health. Mr. Brocklebank was 83 last week. Mrs. Brocklebank is 72. Mr. and Mrs. Snyder are both in their 70s.
They have been strong and valuable citizens through the years in the town of Canandaigua. They have spent most of their lives at farming and have done well.
The Ray Brocklebank farm where the open house will be held has been occupied by four generations of the family. Samuel Brocklebank came into Ontario county in 1790. He was a Revolutionary captain and he is listed among the first 100 purchasers of Phelps and Gorham parcels in the county. Because of his Revolution war background he was sold the land for $4 per acre (others paid up to $16). Samuel and Esther Brocklebank's son, Levi, was the first male white child born in Ontario county. This was in the spring of 1791.
Floyd B. Brocklebank is the grandson of Samuel and the son of Benjamin S. Brocklebank who was one of the charter members of the Canandaigua Grange and a strong figure in the agricultural affairs of the area. Samuel Brocklebank, the pioneer settler, was a skilled fruit grower and his apple trees bore fruit for more than a century.
Floyd B. Brocklebank, grandson of the pioneer, who now notes his 50th anniversary, was twice married. His first wife was the former Miss May Forrest who died about seven years after their marriage. Mrs. Herendeen, who joins in planning the Dec. 10 open house, is a child of this initial union.
Mr. and Mrs. Snyder have had no children. Mr. and Mrs. Brocklebank have 13 grandchildren, children of their two sons and daughters.
Mr. and Mrs. Ray E. Brocklebank are parents of a son, Edward Brocklebank. who shares the management of the home farm, and two daughters, Mrs. Arthur Reed (the former Joyce Brocklebank) Canandaigua, and Miss Anna Mae Brocklebank, who is a student at RBI in Rochester.
Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Brocklebank have a son, Richard, who is attending St. Andrews seminary in Rochester, and two daughters, Ann and Mary Beth.
Mrs. Herendeen has six children: James, who resides near Newburgh on the Hudson; Floyd, who lives in California; Lyndon, Shortsville; Glenn, also Shortsville; Carl, who is serving in the Navy, Dorothy, (Mrs. Melvin Nessinger) of Shortsville and Celia (Mrs. Harry White), Marion.
