On Oct. 4, Carlos and Mary (Cheney) DeGroff celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary at a Dinner at the Deershead Inn in Elizabethtown. They were married in a candlelight service on Oct. 4, 1952, at the First Presbyterian Church (now the Mount Moriah Presbyterian Church) in Port Henry, by the Rev. Willard Paul. Their attendants, Edward and Rose Bates, were Carlos' sister and her husband. They have a son, Carlos, Jr., and his wife, Diane, of Plattsburgh. Their daughter, Derianne, died in 1997. They have three grandsons: Jeremy DeGroff and his wife, Cheri; Matthew DeGroff; and Justin Codraro of Florida. They have two great-grandchildren, Denali, son of Jeremy and Cheri; and Mylea Ann, daughter of Justin Codraro and Jessica Raquet. They were all present for the occasion except for Justin and Mylea Ann.
