Mr. and Mrs. Albert Duflot
50th Wedding Anniversary
From a newspaper article on the occasion of the 50th Wedding
Annriversary of Albert and Marie A. Duflot on
September 19, 1926 - Texarkana, Arkansas:

"Celebrate Golden Wedding"

Mr. and Mrs. Albert Duflot were guests of honor at a picnic
dinner Sunday at Spring Lake Park in celebration of their
fiftieth wedding anniversary.  The centerpiece was a huge
cake with fifty candles and Mr. and Mrs. Duflot were presented
fifty dollars in gold by their children.  The event was a complete
surprise to the honorees.  A bountiful dinner was served the
members of the family and Mr. and Mrs. Foster Rogers, old
friends of the guests of honor. The children present were:
Mrs. R. J. Patterson, Mrs. W. B. Few, Mrs. W. J. Sorsby,
Mrs. Ed George, Mrs. Albertine Compton, Mrs. W. F. Thompson
and Mrs. Bunn Williams and their families.
Those who were unable to attend were
J. L. Duflot of Canyon, Texas, A. A. Duflot of Akron, Ohio and
George S. Duflot of Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Continuing the celebration into the afternoon, friends were given
an opportunity to extend congratulations at open house at the home
of Mr. and Mrs. J. Bunn Williams, 223 Locust Street.  For the
occasion the house was appropriately decorated in autumn flowers
featuring a gold note.  In the receiving line were Mr. and Mrs. Williams,
Mr. and Mrs. Duflot, Mrs. W. S. James, Mrs. F. E. Maddox,
Mrs. A. W. Stevens, Mrs. Will Vinson, Mrs. A. L. Willis, Mrs. Ben
Sorsby, Mrs. Patterson, Mrs. Few, Mrs. W. G. Sorsby, Mrs. George,
Mrs. Compton, and Mrs. Thompson.  Punch was served from a table
on which were tall baskets of carnations, the gift of friends, by Misses
Josephine Few, Cora Crenshaw, Mary Janet Compton and Ava Lee
Willis.   Miss Ann Few registered the guests at the door.  About two
hundred friends called during the afternoon, and Mr. and Mrs. Albert
Duflot received many lovely gifts as souvenirs of the occasion."
