Frome, Mr./Mrs. Henry (Silv Anniv - 1 JUL 1918)
Wedded twenty-five years ago and still residing in the same house in which they were married is the unusually happy circumstances in which Mr. and Mrs. Henry Frome found themselves Monday of this week. The expression "found themselves", while strictly accurate is not sufficiently broad to cover the entire situation.
Rather let us say that about one hundred and twenty-five relatives and friends found them at their comfortable home in the town of Colby, Clark County, Wis. Monday evening and took complete possession of the homestead in a rousing celebration of the silver wedding anniversary, which occurred at that time.
Mr. and Mrs. Frome were united in marriage July 1, 1893, the bride being Miss Mary Greske, one of the best known and most popular young ladies of that time and vicinity.
All of the brothers and sisters of the groom and a large number of relatives of the bride were present Monday evening as well as a very large number of their friends and neighbors. A bountiful midnight lunch was served and many of the young people enjoyed dancing in the spacious kitchen. The party broke up at a reasonable hour Tuesday morning, leaving the old newlyweds with a stock of good wishes that should last them another 25 years.
