Laffe, Mr./Mrs. George (Golden - 26 Oct. 1936)
Humbird has seen in recent years numerous golden wedding anniversary celebrations, but perhaps no happier one was ever held than one last Sunday, when Mr. and Mrs. George Laffe observed that event. A gathering of the family and a few other relatives at their home marked the day. Present were their four sons: Louis G. and family, Leonard J. and family, Fred A. and family, and Henry E; and their two daughters, Mrs. Emma Haag and family from North Bend, and Mrs. Mary Iffland and husband, of New London. Others present were Mr. and Mrs. Haag, of Black River Falls, and Christ Eisenhart, brother of Mrs. Laffe. All excepting one of their twelve grandchildren, Herman Laffe who is employed in Madison, were present. Twenty-seven partook of the golden wedding feast Sunday.
George Laffe and Miss Lizzie Eisenhart were united in marriage at North Bend, on Oct. 26, 1886. Both were natives of Germany, Mr. Laffe of Bavaria, and his wife of Wurtemberg. Each had come to America several years previous, the latter with her parents and brothers and sisters, and the former with his brother Andrew. About a year following their marriage was spent at Winona, and then they came to a farm east of Humbird, and this vicinity has been their home ever since. A large circle of friends join with the family in wishing these good folks many more years of happy journey together.
