This afternoon at 4 o’clock, just as the DEMOCRAT was going to press, an event occurred which has for some time been the subject of joyous anticipations, and in which two of Ithaca’s most popular young people were the chief participants. Miss Flora Bliven was united in marriage to Dr. Frank Howe, at the residence of the bride’s father, Mr. C. M. Bliven, by the Rev. H.F. Spencer, of the Aurora Street Church. The bride, in an elegant costume of white ottoman silk, tastefully trimmed with natural flowers, looked pretty beyond description and the groom was as dignified and handsome as can be imagined. There were congratulations without end from the company of intimate friends who had assembled to witness the happy event. The company is now enjoying the hospitable treatment of the bride’s parents, and the reception, accompanied by an elegant repast, is progressing most happily.

Ithaca Daily Journal Tuesday August 16, 1870


The Auburn News publishes the following respecting the old lady, ELIZABETH PIFER, of Groton: “A strange incident transpired yesterday at a station on the Southern Central. Mrs. ELIZABETH PIFER, a lay 107 years old and in excellent health, took the cars at Peruville. It was the first time she had seen a locomotive and cars in her life. A delegation of curious people attended at the depot to see her off. Though a little alarmed at traveling with such a high rate of speed, Mrs. Pifer quickly came to the conclusion that a cushioned seat, twenty miles an hour, and a smooth road, was a little ahead of the stages and corduroy turnpikes of the days of her childhood. She has now lived in the town of Groton since 1866, and was yesterday on a visit to the village of Groton to see a young lady acquaintance 100 years of age.
