100 Years Ago, Coon Rapids Enterprise, July 14, 2016 -
From July 14, 1916:

Mr. and Mrs. A.P. Kinnick celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary Wednesday, July 6. They
issued invitations to many friends to enjoy the occasion with them and it was an enjoyable occasion.
Mr. and Mrs. Kinnick are very sociable people. They enjoy their friends and their friends enjoy
them. The party was comprised of about 50 guests, many being relatives, and the good eats served
fairly made the tables groan. The happy couple now as then were married at Coon Rapids, and their
first home was in a small dwelling which occupied the lot now occupied by the home of The Enterprise family. They have prospered well and are to be congratulated upon their long and happy wedded life and excellent family of children.
