Fisher, Mr./Mrs. John G. (Silver - 25 OCT 1930)
Approximately 250 relatives, friends and neighbors of the community gathered at the home of John G. Fisher on Friday evening Oct. 24 to help celebrate the silver wedding of Mr. and Mrs. John G. Fisher Jr., who observed the twenty-fifth anniversary of their marriage Oct. 25, 1930
Mr. and Mrs. Fisher were married in the Trinity Lutheran Church of Spencer on Oct. 25, 1905 by Rev. A. F. Imm. The bride’s maiden name having been Hulda Hildebrandt five of six children born to them are living who are four sons, Marlin, Arthur, Wilbur and Eldon and one daughter Hulda. One son Eldor (? Spelling) died at the age of 10 years, on May 2, 1921.
The year following their marriage they moved on a farm one-fourth mile east of the Veefkind Station where they since resided. Mr. Fisher had in combination with his farm a saw mill and did custom sawing of lumber, lath, and shingle and feed grinding, which occupation he retired from about 10 years ago having continued that work for over 26 (?) years.
Mrs. Fisher wore her veil held in place with a silver wreath and the couple wore boutonnieres they wore 25 years ago. To a march played by Mr. Guy Cole and Fred Dankemeyer, the bridal party composed of Mr. and Mrs. John G. Fisher, George Fisher, Jr., Cora Reinheimer, Chas. Hildebrandt and Mrs. M. Woodruff. The same making the bridal party at the first wedding marched around the hall.
The couple treated their guests to ice cream and a smoke of fragrant cigars was enjoyed. Lunch was served at mid-nite. A dance was given in the granary for the guests at which Mr. Guy Cole and Fred Dankemeyer furnished the music. It will be nice to remember Mr. Guy Cole played at this wedding 25 years ago.
The guests of honor were presented with a purse of silver, besides many other gifts in token of the occasion. A beautiful set of silver ware on a lovely tray was presented to them by Salem’s Lutheran Aid society, friends and neighbors.
