Kunz, Mr./Mrs. William (50th Anniv. - Apr. 1930)

Mr. and Mrs. William Kunz, formerly of Colby but now located at Merrill, celebrated their golden wedding anniversary at Merrill last week. This was a surprise event for them as they were invited to attend the wedding of their granddaughter.

The double celebration occurred at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Schmidt, Fifth street, an aunt and uncle of the young bride. The latter presented a beautiful appearance in a wedding costume of white silk, fashioned in the prevailing mode, with a veil caught up in wreath effect. The bride is a resident of Chippewa Falls, but has been employed in Merrill. The groom, Albert Wealing, is a resident of New Haven, Indiana, but is employed at Eau Claire, where the young people expect to make their home. The attendants at this wedding were: Miss Alive Kleist, of Brillion, and Arno Kunz, brother of the bride, of New Holstein.

Following the ceremony, which united the young people, Rev. M. M. Schmidt again officiated at services in which Mr. and Mrs. William Kunz, well known residents of Lincoln county, again pledged their troth, after fifty years of wedded bliss. The participants in both weddings were recipients of many beautiful gifts, appropriate for the occasion.

Dinner, with covers laid for thirty guests, was served at the Schmidt home, following the nuptial services.

The following children were present: Mrs. Ida Dutcher and Mrs. Herbert Schmidt of Merrill, Herman, being unable to attend on account of sickness. Also all the grand children except Wm. Hansohn of Milwaukee and Arthur Kunz of Platte Center, Neb.
