Korth, Mr./Mrs. William (Golden - 12 Sept. 1936)
Mr. and Mrs. William Korth and their entire family gathered at their home in Neillsville Sunday to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of their marriage, and it was indeed a happy event.
William Korth and Miss Augusta Jahr were married at Lake Mills, Wisconsin, Sept. 12, 1886.
They lived in Lake Mills till 1900, Mr. Korth following the carpenter trade most of the time.
In October of that year they came to Clark County and bought a farm in the Town of Grant, which they carried on until about 15 years ago, when they bought a home in Neillsville, where they have lived since.
Mr. Korth was a progressive farmer and was active in promoting agriculture while he was on the farm. Both he and his wife have won the respect and friendship of all who know them, and all will rejoice with them in their having finished a half century of wedded life.
Mr. and Mrs. Korth have five children: Charles in the Town of Pine Valley, Emil in York, Leo in Grant, Louis at home and Mrs. Frank Knoop in Pine Valley. All of these with fifteen grandchildren were present at the reunion Sunday. A brother August, his wife and son Edard and wife, another son Rudolph, wife and two children, all of Lake Mills, were present.
Rev. and Mrs. Wilson M. Bixler were in attendance, and Mr. Bixler officiated in the ceremony in which Mr. and Mrs. Kurth pledged themselves a new to mutual love and devotion.
A fine dinner was served, and a number of fine presents were bestowed.
In the evening the younger members gathered at the Leo Kurth home for a social hour.
