From Madisonville. KY paper; Written by Miss Harriet Bass Jenner - February 14, 1947
Fifty-Three years ago today Walter Sigler of near Dixon received a real, live
Valentine, which he has kept and cherished through the years. This Valentine
Day wedding ceremony in 1894 was at the Court House in Dixon.
The Sigler’s have lived around Dixon most of the time since.
Today they are celebrating their anniversary with a family day in the home of
their son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Chesley Page, near Providence.
THEY MOVED there last week from Dixon and plan to stay until next fall.
Their children are Mrs. A. L. Sisk of Detroit, Ray Sigler and Mrs. Ray Sigler
and Mrs. Ronald Denton of Providence, and Mrs. Opal Page and Mrs. James
Springer who live near Providence.
All of the children planned to be with them during the day. And also some of
their 15 grandchildren.
Fifty-three years ago Mr. Sigler started calling his wife "Kid" and "Kid" is
what he still calls her today. He is "Walt" to her.
THE SIGLERS have often celebrated their birthdays the same day. He was 74
last Jan 6, and she was 70 last New Year day.
When they have a combined birthday celebration they have usually picked some
day between the anniversaries.
Mr. Sigler has been a farmer and carpenter most of his life. He plans to put
out a crop on the Page place this year.
He has made numerous pieces of furniture for the family.
"For awhile most of the rocking chairs the family had were ones Dade made,"
says Mrs. Springer. "He made all kinds of rockers, some with arms, and some
sewing rockers without arms."
"Most of the grandchildren have had little rocking chairs their grandfather
MRS. SIGLER'S main hobby is hand work. She had made each of them at least
"Mother plans to have a garden and raise chickens as usual this summer," Mrs.
"Dad and Mother are the kind of people who won't let themselves get old.
We've tried to get Father to retire and to get Mother to let down. They say they
wouldn't know what to do if they did.
"The ground was covered with snow the day they were married. They drove to
the Court House in a horse and buggy. Each year they hope for snow on their
MR. SIGLER was born in Illinois and his wife in Tennessee. Their families
moved to KY when they were children. About 10 years ago the Sigler’s and
all of their children lived in Detroit. The Sigler’s and all of their
children returned to KY after a short stay. Gradually all of their children
have followed except for Mrs. Sisk (Georgia).
Before the war the Siglers lived near Waverly on property owned by the
Springers. When this was taken over for Camp Breckinridge they bought their
present place near Dixon.
