Kuester, Gottlieb & Wilhelmina (Silver - 27 APR 1913)

The farm home of Mr. and Mrs. Gottlieb Kuester, who live six miles west of this city (Greenwood, Clark Co., Wis.), was the scene of a pleasant gathering of over two hundred relatives and friends, on Sunday last, April 27, 1913. The occasion is one that will long be remembered for its social and congenial spirit, that prevailed among friends and relatives that had not assembled before in many years. It was a most beautiful spring day and all things seemed to rejoice in the event of the twenty-fifty anniversary of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Kuester.

Promptly at 2:30 o’clock p.m., Mr. and Mrs. Kuester took their places in the parlor while a wedding march was played by Miss Goeke, and Rev. Otto Saewert pronounced a short ceremony in German, as well as well chosen remarks.

The bride of twenty-five years ago was dressed in a beautiful gown of black satin and wore a silver bouquet.

A delightful time was spent by all present and great gayety reigned. The guests were regaled by an abundance of things which appeal to the taste and everybody left appreciative of the generous hospitality at the Kuester home.

They were the recipients of many beautiful articles of silver, which shows the high respect they are held in by their many friends. This home is blessed with five children, four of whom are still under the parental roof, while one is the wife of Julius Dill of this city.

Mr. and Mrs. Kuester took up their home at the farm they now reside twenty-five years ago, when the country was then but a wilderness, and now have a beautiful farm home and 240 acres of the nicest land in Clark County.

Those from away in attendance were the following brothers of Mrs. Kuester: Mr. and Mrs. Gustave Reinke and two children of Plymouth, Wis., and Wm., August and Charles Reinke with their wives and children from Franklin, Wis., Mrs. John Brill and two sons from Calumet, Mich., the former being the only sister of Mrs. Kuester. Mr. and Mrs. Ludevig of Dorchester and Mrs. Greisch and son and daughter of Marshfield.

The Gleaner joins with friends in wishing Mr. and Mrs. Kuester twenty-five years more of happy marriage.
