Wellington Daily News
4 May 1916; Page 2

A happy gathering was that at the home of Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Stocking last Wednesday when the fortieth wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Roderick Stocking of Mayfield, parents of Mr. Stocking was celebrated..

Mrs. and Mrs. Stocking were married at Crescent City, Illinois and came to Sumner County in 1878.  They are now living in the town of Mayfield.  For many years after taking residence in this county they lived on a farm near Mayfield and it was there that they raised their fine family.  As Mr. Stocking said he came to Sumner “when Wichita was the jumping off place.”

Those present at the celebration Wednesday were Mr. and Mrs. Roderick Stocking, Mr. and Mrs. Porter Stocking and son Wilmer, John Stocking, Mr. and Mrs. Wm Mitchell, Miss Nell Mitchell, Miss Julia Holland, Mrs. Lizzie Marshall and Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Stocking.

My great-grandfather, Constantine “Tom” Breneman, was a blacksmith during the Civil War, and he was also a blacksmith after he settled in Kansas after the Civil War.  It appears that he taught one of his sons, Otto Breneman, this skill also, as Otto had a blacksmith shop in the tiny town of Mayfield, Kansas, and Otto and Constantine worked there together for a time before Otto’s death at an early age.  Otto and Constantine are pictured Here.
