A Surprise [1908]
As Sunday May 17 1908 was the sixtieth birthday of Mrs. J.A. Eveland the husband and children thought they would have a surprise dinner for her which worked to perfection.  About 9 a.m. the children gathered at the big gate near the road and marched down the big hill with well filled baskets and found the 2 old folks sitting on the porch enjoying themselves.  The mother was so surprised she didn’t know if she should laugh or cry so she did a little of both.  About the same time she got over her surprise and began talking to the children she looked up and saw a nice rocking chair coming, which the children had bought her as a birthday present.  This also pleased her very much.  The table was then soon set with goodly things and all did ample justice to them.  About 2:00 ice cream and refreshments were served.  Those present were Mr. and Mrs. Ora Madlem, Mr. and Mrs. Alva Eveland and family, Mr. and Mrs. Norman Strader, Mrs. Alden Hopper and family, Mr. and Mrs. James Paden, James Eveland, John Brown and family, Aunt Elizabeth Miller all the children being present except 2, Mr. George Eveland of Chrisman, Ill., and Mrs. Sarah Davis Oblong, Ill.  All departed at a late hour hoping to see their mother live to witness many happy birthdays.

Residence Burned [no date]
About 9 o’clock Monday morning the residence of Lon Matteson about 2 miles south of town took fire and burned to the ground.  Mr. and Mrs. Matteson were in Champaign at the time visiting their daughter Mrs. Gay Wetherald and only his 2 young daughters were at home.  With the assistance of one or two others they managed to get out a sofa, a cabinet organ, some clothes and a few other things.  The fire resulted from pouring oil into the stove to revive the fire.  A worse calamity was barely avoided for the fire caught the clothing of one of the girls and it was only by vigorous efforts of both that the flames were extinguished.  The property was insured but we have not learned the amount.

MARRIED FIFTY YEARS [unknown paper, 1907]
Golden Wedding Anniversary Fittingly Observed
Friends of Mr. and Mrs. G. Monohon Gather at their home Sunday
M Monohon



Monday Nov. 25th was the closing of half a century of married life of Mr. and Mrs. G. Monohon of this city.  A surprise was given them by the gathering of relatives and friends who had prepared a big table of many good things to eat for to celebrate the occasion.  On November 25, 1857, near Salem Church Rev. William Smith solemnized the occasion which made Gershom Monohon  then 27 years old, and Miss Isabell Robinson man and wife.  Only a few of the witnesses of the wedding are now living among whom being Mrs.Marcia Green, mother of Mr. J. D. Green.  An impressive ceremony conducted by Rev. J. K. Dillon was held by which the marriage vows of 50 years ago were reaffirmed.  Gold pieces and flowers were presented with the complements of all present.  To this union were born 6 children, 4 of whom are now living, viz: John Monohon, Mrs. J. P. Ewart, Geo. G. Monohon, and Mark T. Monohon Douglas and Hattie died many years ago.  Mrs. Monohon was born in Warren County, Ohio May 15, 1837.  she came with her parents to Cumberland County in 1852.  The greatest compliment to a woman can well be paid to her- that she was a faithful wife a good mother and good neighbor and woman.  Another remarkable thing of this marriage is that in the 50 years they lived in but 2 houses, at one time moving across the square to their present house.  Those present to the occasion were: Rev. and Mrs. J. K. Dillon, Mr. and Mrs. P. A. Brady, Mrs. Susan Robertson and daughter Miss Connie, Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Ewart and family, Mr. and Mrs. John Monohon, Mr. and Mrs. Gar Borden, Mr. and Mrs. J. G. McCalla and son Harry, Mr. Geo. G. Monohon and daughters Thursay and Treava, Mr. M. T. Monohon and daughters Ila and Iris and Mrs. Maria Green.  Mr. Monohon was born in Montgomery County, Indiana Feb. 10, 1830.  He came to Greenup 63 years ago and has lived here continually since.  His early life was spent in ardous farm work and his school advantages were limited but by study at home and attending school after attaining his majority, he secured a thorough business education and a fair literary education.  In 1852 he entered the store of A. K. Bosworth as a clerk, remained as such until 1858, and then formed a partnership with Mr. Kellum, in the mercantile business continuing the same until 1864 when Mr. Kellum sold his interest to D. C. Robertson.  From 1872 Mr. Monohon continued his business until in 1904 his long established business passed into the hands of his sons Mark and John who continue the business to this day.  In 1876 he was elected to the State Legislature as a minority candidate from Effingham, Shelby and Cumberland counties, and served 2 years.  He has served as the President of the Town Board and on several occasions has served as trustee.  He has always been public spirited, having contributed $1,000 to ward the building of the Vandalia Railroad.  To his efforts is mainly due the credit of causing in 1855 the erec-….article cut off at this point.
