"Frank Hollmann and Christena Fleckenstein were married Tuesday, Jan. 9, 1906, at nine o’clock at St. Louis Catholic Church, Rev. August Birschner officiating. The couple were attended by Frank Fleckenstein, brother of the bride, Joe Erli, Elsie Swaermer and Mary Jantsch. After the ceremony, the wedding party ate breakfast at the home of the bride’s parents, after which they went to the home of the groom in the town of Holton, where they made merry until morning. The bride is one of Dorchester’s (Clark Co., Wis.) most popular young ladies and the groom is also well known, living on a farm in the town of Holton. They start in with the most cordial wishes of a multitude of friends for a happy and prosperous journey in life together."
The above item appeared in the local paper 25 years ago and today brings the 25th wedding anniversary of the happy and prosperous couple. Along with this silver wedding celebration comes the 49th wedding anniversary of Mrs. Hollmann’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Val Fleckenstein. They were married at Milwaukee and have resided here since 1901. Mr. Fleckenstein erected the building now occupied by the Dorchester Hardware Co.
After fifteen successful years in the hardware business, Mr. Fleckenstein sold his establishment to the Garbisch brothers, and moved onto the farm east of this village where they have since resided.
The day certainly is one of celebration in the Fleckenstein and Hollmann homes and the Clarion joins the many friends in offering congratulations and wishing much happiness and joy in future years.
