Geiger, John E. (26 OCT 1937)
A fiftieth wedding anniversary, which was not observed on Oct. 26th, owing to the illness of John E. Geiger, who has been confined to his home for the past five weeks, might be of interest to friends and acquaintances.
John E. Geiger and Miss Gertie A. Andrew of Brooklyn, Green Co., Wis., were united at high noon, Thursday, Oct. 26, 1887, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Edmund J. Andrew by Rev. J.E. Coleman at Evansville, Wis. Many relatives and friends attended and after the ceremony a wedding dinner was served. The couple left on the afternoon train for a wedding trip and upon their return home the Brooklyn band serenaded the couple on the Andrew lawn and were then invited into the home where a dainty lunch was served by Miss Hattie Andrew, sister of the bride.
Mrs. Alta McComb was the only guest to attend both wedding fifty years ago and the Golden Wedding anniversary. Mr. Geiger purchased the A.A. Arnold 170-acre farm northeast of Thorp in Dec. 1899, and moved here with his family, operating the farm for 13 years before selling and building their present home in this village.
