Note: Wellsboro Agitator of Oct 28, 1880, p3 has: Nelson Etchings. PERSONAL—A SIDEWALK ACCIDENT—A VERY PLEASANT SILVER WEDDING. Correspondence of the Agitator. NELSON, October 21-,1880.— ... One of the handsomest banners I have seen during the campaign is floating proudly to the breeze at the residence of William Merritt, with the names of our next President and Vice-President, Garfield and Arthur, beautifully inscribed thereon. Last Saturday Mr. and Mrs. John Hazlett celebrated the twenty-fifth anniversary of their marriage. Sixty invitations were sent out to their relatives and most intimate friends; but owing to the unpropitious state of the weather, but forty-five assembled to congratulate them and express their kind regards in silver. Only a few of their friends knew it was their silver wedding until they reached the house, so the presents were not very numerous. Among the other fine gifts I noticed a beautiful canister from their sons with this inscription engraved upon it. "Father and Mother from Frank and Edgar. 1855-1880." There were also handsome presents from Mrs. A. J. Howell, Mrs. William Merritt, Mrs. James Cook and others. Mr. Hazlett's residence is a large, commodious structure well arranged for home comfort, and it is especially adapted to accommodate large companies. At two o-clock the dinner was served in the long dinning-room, and it will be conceded by all who were fortunate enough to partake that the meal was perfect in every respect. Nothing was lacking that could possible be desired by any person present, and all were pleasantly served by the active and liberal hands of the committee of young ladies and gentlemen. One notable event took place, and which caused a great deal of merriment, was the vote that was taken for President, which resulted in forty-one for Garfield and four for Hancock. During the afternoon Miss Fanny Hazlett furnished some very fine vocal and instrumental music, which added much to the enjoyment of the occasion, This social gathering was by far the pleasantest one the writer has had the good fortune to attend in many a day.. Nothing was left undone to enhance the enjoyment of the occasion, and all the guests will join In wishing Mr. and Mrs. Hazlett many happy returns of the day. * * * Munsell's 1883 History of Tioga county has: JOHN HAZLETT is a native of Nelson, and was born in 1823. He married Miss Lucy Dunham, of Farmington, in 1855. He is a prosperous farmer, and owns 230 acres in Nelson. He is a member of Nelson Lodge, No. 434, I.O.O.F. His wife is a member of the Presbyterian church. * * * Brown's 1897 History of Tioga Co. has: JOHN HAZLETT, SR., son of Robert Hazlett, was born in the North of Ireland, and immigrated to the United States in 1810. The same year he settled in Nelson township, Tioga county, Pennsylvania, where he cleared and improved the farm now occupied by his descendants, upon which he died. On April 11, 1811, he married Jane Campbell, a daughter of Joseph Campbell, of Nelson township, and their children were as follows: Rachel, who married James Cook; Mary, who married John Flint; Samuel, who married Catherine Knapp; Archibald, Jane, John, Eliza Ann, who married William Merritt; Sally J., who married Charles Horsley, and Maria, wife of Washington Richardson. * * * Wellsboro Agitator of Mar 23, 1892 has: Mr. John Hazlett, of Nelson, died a few days ago of pneumonia. His sisters, Mrs. Knapp and Mrs. William Merritt, are dangerously sick with the same disease. Mr. John Hazlett, who died in Nelson recently, had lived all his life on the old homestead where he died. In 1855 he married Miss Lucy Dunham, and they raised a family of six children--three of each sex--who are useful men and women. Mr. Hazlett was born February 28th, 1823, and during all his adult life he was known as a kind neighbor and respected citizen. In his last sickness he professed his faith in Christ, and his death was a happy one. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. C. J. Bradbury, of Painted Post, NY, at the family residence in Nelson--the scene of Mr. Hazlett‘s birth and death.
