THE BRYAN DEMOCRAT, FEBRUARY 22, 1906 ~ CELEBRATED GOLDEN WEDDING ANNIVERSARY Mr. and Mrs. Kunkle, married fifty years ago - Newsy Notes from Village of Kunkle ~ Kunkle, Ohio, Feb. 19, 1906 - Special ~ The golden wedding anniversary of Mr. and Ms. Henry Kunkle, Sr. occurred at their home on Wednesday, February 7, 1906. Their children and near friends to the number of thirty were present, and they all had a merry time. They presented them with a very fine extension table,something useful as well as ornamental. Father Kunkle walked from Pennsylvania to Williams county in 1844 and came to this neighborhood, where he now lives. He bought and sold the following real estate: first the land now occupied by the Williams County Agricultural Society at Montpelier. Est of Kunkle he purchased eighty acres, now known as the Webb farm. He also owned the John Shinnabarger farm, west of town, and occupied by J. R. Apt, Jr. After making some changes,he now owns about 400 acres around this village. Mr. Kunkle made two trips to California. First in 1850, to dig for gold. He left St. Louis, then a city of only 60,000, with a company of fifty-two people. But only two of these, Mr. Kunkle and his brother George, reached California, the remainder dropping off at other points. They remained until the fall of 1853, when they returned, principally by water. When out about three days their boat came near being ship-wrecked. On their arrival at Philadelphia the first thing to do was to exchange their gold dust for money or rather wait in Perry, Pa,Mr. Kunkle again returned to Williams county. After clearing and working on his farm for about three months, Mr. Kunkle and George Baltozer started again for California, from there by boat, going over the much-talked of Nicaraugua route, remanding there until 1855. After Mr. Kunkle's marriage, Feb. 07, 1856, the couple started for what is now Kunkle. Seven days later Mr. and Mrs. Kunkle arrived at Stryker, where they were met by his brother, John Kunkle, who lived south of West Unity. They moved one mile west and will probably remain their the balance of their lives, be they many of few. Mrs. Kunkle's maiden name was Matilda Jane Baltozer, she having many brothers located in this county, but at this time she is the only one left. She was born and raised in Madison Twp, Perry County, Pa, and moved with her husband to Madison Twp, Williams County, never having lived in any other than Madison township.

Mr. and Mrs. Kunkle's friends wish them well in their old days. May they live many years, although both are in feeble health, to enjoy their hard earnings of this life is the wish of all who know them.

he Town of KUNKLE, in William Co, Ohio, was named after Henry Stone Kunkle.
