marriage. Mr. and Mrs. Whltmore
have always lived in Wayne county,
excepting a short period when they
resided In Susquehanna county.
Their home and its surroundings
would indicate the amount of labor,
thrift and Industry which It cost
this worthy couple to secure for
themselves and their children, one
of the most desirable residences
in Berlin township. Forty years of
continual labor and Industry, should
and did accomplish good results for
Mr. and Mrs. Whltmore. Some years
ago Uncle Sam needed a location for
a postofflce In that part of the coun
ty, and selected Mr. AVhltmore's
house as the most desirable location
and Mr. AVhitmore was made post
master, tne office being designated
