Hohl, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin (50th - 4 May 1958) 

Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Hohl of Greenwood celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Sunday.  Relatives were entertained at the home of their daughter, Mrs. Anita Miller. 

Mr. Hohl, 77, was born February 4, 1881, in Waltzenhausen, Switzerland, and Mrs. Hohl, nee Katharine Sonderegger, 71, was born in Berneck, Switzerland, March 14, 1887. 

They were married May 4, 1908, in Waltzenhausen, where Mr. Hohl was a wagon-maker.  The couple came to the United States in March 1911 and lived in southern Wisconsin for three years, coming to Greenwood in the spring of 1914.  They purchased a farm east of Greenwood, on which they lived until 1954, when they retired and came to the city to reside. 

Present for the occasion were their three children, Fred Hohl and wife, Walter Hohl and wife, and Mrs. Anita Miller, all of Greenwood; also four of their five grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren attended the celebration. They are Mr. and Mrs. Robert (Gladys) Bartelt and children, James, Jane and Ann, and Sandra and Bruce Miller, all of Greenwood, and Mr. and Mrs. Donald (Nancy) Ellingson and children, Mary and Laurie of Marshfield.  A grandson, Pvt. David Hohl of Fort Knox, Ky., could not be present. 

Other guests were: Mr. and Mrs. Donald Wells and children, Michael and Marcia, Harold Heck and Mrs. Alvilda Sonderegger, all of Greenwood; Mrs. Martha Sonderegger of Miami, Fla.; Mrs. Ida Thurnheer of Beneck, Switzerland; and Mr. and Mrs. Walter Durauer and Mrs. George Ulrich, all of Alma. 

Other news of this family - Mrs. Martha Sonderegger of Miami, Fla., and her sister, Mrs. Ida Thurnheer of Beneck, Switzerland, are visiting with Mrs. Sonderegger’s son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Donald Wells. Sunday they attended the golden wedding celebration of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Hohl.  Mrs. Hohl is a sister-in-law of Mrs. Sonderegger, a former Greenwood resident.
