Mr. and Mrs. George Brett Who Have Celebrated Their 50th Wedding Anniversary
Mr. and Mrs. George William Brett of 602 Daisy Street today are headed toward their fifty-first wedding anniversary, having celebrated their golden wedding date on January 12.
On the Sunday preceding their anniversary a dinner, with their children and grandchildren present, was held in their honor at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Leavy.
Mr. and Mrs. Brett have living in Clearfield continuously since 1898, and for several years prior to 1891, when they went to Jersey Shore and Gillintown, where Mr. Brett was employed by the New York Central Railroad Company.
Mr. Brett was born in Ireland and was 73 years of age on January 1. He was brought to this country by his father, who lived at Woodland and who, at his death was described as "everybody's friend and who had everybody for a friend." In 1889 the father purchased and occupied the Brett Farm on the Clearfield-Woodland highway.
Mrs. Brett, the former Sarah M. Goss, who will be 71 years of age on May 12, was born near Blue Ball in Decatur Township. Her father, Jesse Goss, who died a number of years ago at the Brett Home, was a man influential in the affairs of Wallaceton, West Decatur, Boggs and Decatur Townships.

Last Week's Mystery Farm is One of Most Productive in County
By Mabel Lobb - Progress Staff Writer
One of the most productive farms in Clearfield County is last week's Mystery Farm, that owned by Mrs. Iola Shimmel of West Decatur R.D., having had top herd in 1957 in the Clearfield County Dairy Herd Improvement Association and placing among the top in previous years.
The Shimmel farm, also known as the Brae Glen farm, taken from their name used to register cattle, is located on Route 970 about 1-1/4 miles west of Wallaceton.
In the early 1800's the original tract of 640 acres, which was later divided and sold to other farmers, was bought and settled by George W. Shimmel. Currently the estate contains about 169 acres. Through the years, ownership has passed on to other members of the family until it has now reached the fifth generation, those persons having lived there about 38 years thus far.
Thirteen children were born to Mrs. Shimmel and her husband, the late Morris Shimmel: Mrs. Irene Conaway, Osceola Mills R.D.; Morris, Jr., Houtzdale; Don, at home and Darwin, at Niagara Falls, NY, who are twins; Raymond, West Decatur; Mrs. Lelda Morgan, Detroit, Mich.; Mrs. Joanne Jones, who with her husband, Fred, and two children, Robin and Ricky, live on the farm in apartment over the garage; William, Indiana, Pa.; Mrs. Gail Shimmel, Osceola Mills, R.D.; Mrs. Helen Hipps, Phyllis, Diane, and a little granddaughter, three month old Debbie, on the farm.
One child is deceased.
Mr. and Mrs. Don Shimmel and two children, Tom and John, live on the property in the tenant house built by Henry Shimmel, a former owner. Don is the director of the Clearfield County Dairy Herd Improvement Association, a position he has held for two years.
Family members lived comfortably in the original house, it having been remodeled and modernized in more recent years. The original barn, too, is standing and being used. A garage and machinery shed are among recent additions.
Used often by the family and neighbors for recreation is the pond situated on the property, which is ideal for swimmers, and being stocked with fish, for anglers, also. Last fall it was drained but will be restocked soon.
The late Morris Shimmel began dairying 35 years ago and the practice has grown to a thriving livelihood. With a herd of Holsteins and Jerseys totaling 48 cattle in all, the Shimmels provide milk to Purity Milk Corp., bulk pickup.
"One of the top herds in the county in more ways than one," said W. O. Mitchell, county farm agent, as the following facts and figures prove:
In the D.H.I.A. in 1957, the Shimmel farm was tops with 26 milking cows producing an average of 11,239 pounds of milk and 430 pounds of butterfat. The high cow, Karmdyke Armsby Pabst Olive, registered Holstein, produced in 305 days at four years of age 16,999 pounds of milk and 576 pounds of butterfat, with other Holsteins boasting high records also.
Both in 1955 and 1956 the herd took second place with a high average of 12,824 pounds of milk produced in 1956. The Shimmels owned a Holstein which produced in 1955, 20,027 pounds of milk and 750 pounds of butterfat. A Jersey in the herd produced 727 pounds of butterfat in 1954.
As the Shimmels are busy farmers, so are they active members and workers of the Salem E.U.B. Church, The Bradford Grange, Holstein Friesian Association of America, D.H.I.A., and the Pennsylvania Holstein Registry Association.
In addition to dairying, crops are grown for cattle fodder. In their "minutes off" both Mrs. Shimmel and her daughter, Helen, enjoy gardening, with roses being their specialty.
"Other than that, there's not much time for other hobbies," Mrs. Shimmel smiled. That's understandable. The Shimmel dairy record speaks for itself.
The Brae Glen Farm is a familiar landmark to many people as the following persons reported their guesses this week: Burke Albert, Woodland; Kenneth Shimmel, Bigler; Mrs. Robert Owens, Clearfield; Mrs. Roxie (Shimmel) Fleck of Hyde, sister-in-law of Mrs. Shimmel; and 3-1/2 year old Billy Horn of Clearfield, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Horn.
