Misc.:  Charlottetown Guardian (PEI), Thursday, 11 August 1938:  Celebrates 50th Wedding Anniversary - Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Peters, Summerside, are receiving congratulations on their 50th wedding anniversary which they celebrated quietly at their home on Milton Avenue with their family of eight children and their grandchildren.  Four of the family came home from the States for the celebration.  They are Mrs. Samuel Jones, with her husband and three children, Somerville, Mass.; Mrs. J. H. Gallant and little daughter, Portland, Maine; Ralph, of Hartford, Conn.; Augustin, of Los Angeles, California.  Mr. and Mrs. Peters were very happy to have all their children home once more all together.  Mr. Peters was born in Rustico 76 years ago and had the pleasure of being present at the recent celebration there of the founding of the Catholic parish.  He came to Summerside with his parents when only three years old.  His wife is a native of Mont Carmel.  For many years Mr. Peters was the very efficient baggage-master of the C. N. R. at Summerside and was a favorite with the travelling public for his unfailing courtesy and faithfulness in his duties.  He is now retired on his well deserved pension and is enjoying the evening of his life with his wife and the members of his family who remained with him in Summerside.  Since his retirement, Mr. Peters had a most enjoyable visit to California, but he much prefers his old home town as a permanent home.  The Guardian joins the many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Peters in hearty congratulations and all hope they will have many more years of happy wedded life.
