“Mrs. A. Edgerton Honored on Birthday

 

Mrs. Celia Edgerton of Cass City was guest of honor Wednesday evening, April 15, when a family dinner was given in the home of her son, Dr. A. C. Edgerton, at Clio, in celebration of her 89th birthday.  Guests at the dinner besides Mrs. Edgerton were: Mr. and Mrs. Richard Edgerton, Mr. and Mrs. Howard McNary of Brown City; Mr.and Mrs. Harvey Goodwin and daughter, Christine, of Flint; and Mr. and Mrs. Robert Edgerton of Bad Axe.

 

Mrs. Edgerton received a number of lovely gifts.  Mrs. Edgerton, the former Celia Goodwin, was born at Harbor Beach April 15, 1853.  When a young girl she moved with her parents to a farm near Port Huron and grew to woman hood near that city.  She was married to Andrew Edgerton and a few years later they moved to Allenton and about 30 years ago came to Cass City.  A few years were spent on a farm near here, then she moved to the home on East Third Street where she still lives.  Mr. Edgerton died February 27, 1913 [sic].

 

Mrs. Edgerton has two sons, Richard, of Brown City and Dr. A. C. Edgerton, of Clio.

 

Despite her advanced age, she is remarkably alert mentally and her mind very clear.”

 

 

The following item appeared in the Cass City Chronicle on Friday, April 19, 1946:

 

Cass City Resident Is 93 Years of Age

 

Dr. A. C. Edgerton of Clio visited his mother, Mrs. Celia Edgerton, Friday evening, a little in advance of her 93rd birthday which Mrs. Edgerton observed quietly at her home on East Third St. on Monday.  Neighbors and friends dropped in over the week end and Monday to extend congratulations.

 

The former Celia Goodwin was born in Harbor Beach and went with her parents when two years of age to live in Port Huron.  At that place in December, 1881, she married Andrew Edgerton.  Eventually they came to a farm east of Cass City and 31 years ago moved to this village.  A year later Mr. Edgerton passed away.

 

She is the mother of two sons, Richard, who lives in part of the Edgerton home here, and Dr. Clifford Edgerton of Clio.  She also reared two stepsons from very small boys, Roy, now deceased, and Weldon of Lansing.  Mrs. Edgerton has two grandsons and two great grandchildren.

 

She is the only living member of a family of 11 children.  Mrs. Edgerton doesn't look her 93 years and enjoys good health except for failing eyesight which prevents her

from reading and sewing.”
