Eysnolge Golden Wedding is Held
Town of York Couple Is Honored on 50th Anniversary
December 27, 1937, marked the 50th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Eysnogle of the town of York, the event being celebrated at their home Christmas day, surrounded by their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and their families.
Joseph M. Eysnogle and Nettie Deets were married December 27, 1887, in the town of Bloom, Richland County, Wisconsin and these vows were renewed before Rev. Raymond J. Fleming, pastor of the Loyal and York Center M. E. Churches, upon their golden wedding day. The bride was attired in a navy blue silk dress which she had fashioned with her own hands. She wore a gold flower and carried a fresh bouquet of gold chrysanthemums.
Shortly after their marriage they purchased a tract of wild land and through years of hard work and thrift, built for themselves and family a comfortable home. This farm was later sold and the family moved to Clark County onto a 90-acre tract of land near Spokeville. After living there for seven years they returned to Richland County and in 1914 again decided to make their home in Clark County. Accordingly they purchased the Wm. Garvin farm in York Township. Four or five years later they rented this farm to their daughter and for the past year to a granddaughter, Mrs. Herbert Sensome, and bought a 30-acre tract of land. Here they still resided and enjoy farming on a smaller scale.
Mr. and Mrs. Eysnogle do all their own work, care for a small herd of cows and he cuts his own wood on a wooded forty three-fourths mile from their home. He also takes great pleasure in drawing tight reigns over the backs of a lively team of young horses. They have lived a busy, yet happy and harmonious life. Wherever they lived they affiliated themselves with some church and were never too busily engaged in their own affairs to assist their church and community in the finer things in life. Since living in the town of York they have been loyal members of the Methodist Church.
Mr. and Mrs. Eysnogle have three daughters, Blanche, Mrs. Charles Schaeffner, Spokeville; Zettie, Mrs. J. V. Young, Town of York; and Dessie, Mrs. Merton Davis, of Medford. There are six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, all of whom were here for the anniversary celebration except one grandchild; and one great-grandchild, Mrs. Irma Hollister and little son of Des Moines, Iowa. Guests at the celebrations besides the immediate family were Rev. and Mrs. Flemming, Loyal and Miss Catherine Gassen, Neillsville, Wis.
The following Monday evening friends and neighbors of the couple gathered at their home as a surprise, bringing with them a prepared lunch and a purse and requested the guests of honor to select their own gift. Both occasions were greatly appreciated and enjoyed by Mr. and Mrs. Eysnogle, and all [*only a line or two left, but to blurred to read.]
