Mr. and Mrs. Edward Ruppert observed their golden wedding anniversary Sunday with an open house at their home in the town of Hull, Wisconsin. About 125 people attended.
Mr. Ruppert was born in 1870 in Northern Michigan and came to this locality with his parents when a young boy. Mrs. Ruppert was born near Racine in 1887 and came to this locality in 1888. Mr. Ruppert’s father bought 160 acres of wild land, which they built into a fine farm. Edward Ruppert worked in logging camps 12 winters and in saw mills in the spring of the years. In 1897 he was married to Miss Lenice Graumann of the town of Hull, Wisconsin. They rented a farm for two years and then bought 80 acres from his mother. In 1900, he built a house. He logged one winter for Paul Umhoefer of Cherokee and four winters for Martin Ellingson. He was school clerk in the home district for 16 years and treasurer a number of years for the Riverside Presbyterian church. Mr. Ruppert built up a splendid farm and now has retired. The farm is now owned by the Ruppert brothers.
