    The Daily Register - Mt. Vernon, IL - Monday, June 15, 1908 UNUSUAL CELEBRATION - Mr. and Mrs. P. F. Hogue, Former Residents, Celebrate 73rd Wedding Anniversary. P. F. HOGUE and wife, who live near Cutler, Ill., and who formerly resided in Jefferson County, are said to be the oldest married couple in the state. They were married in Princeton, Ind., February 23, 1835 and have therefore spent more than 73 years together as husband and wife. Mr. HOGUE was born in Indiana, April 19, 1816 and he is now in his 93rd year. Mrs. HOGUE, who was Miss Elizabeth STORMAHT prior to her marriage was born in Elkton County, KY., November 18, 1818, her age being almost 90 years. In the year 1843, they came to Illinois overland and settled in this county where they remained until the year 1847, when they removed to Warren County where they resided 21 years. They returned to Jefferson County in 1868 and purchased a farm on which they lived _____ 1870, when they decided to locate in Perry County in order to enjoy church privileges of the denomination to which they belonged, the Reformed Presbyterian Church, where they now reside. Eleven children were born to Mr. and Mrs. HOGUE, six of whom are living. The old couple are reasonably hale and hearty and Mr. HOGUE cultivates a vegetable garden, in which it is almost impossible to find a weed; he allows no one but himself to work in the garden. It is believed that they will live to celebrate their diamond or 75th wedding anniversary, which will occur in less than two years. The aged couple have lived consistent christian lives and are noted for their faithful and conscientious performance of the obligations of tight living, and are loved and respected by all who know them. Samuel H. ARCHER and R. M. MUMFORD, two of their old neighbors and friends of Princeton, Ind., have just returned from a visit with them and stopped in Mt. Vernon a few days on their way home.
