Ebbe, Mr./Mrs. Chris (Gold - 1 Mar 1913) 

Last Saturday that most excellent couple, Mr. and Mrs. Chris Ebbe, celebrated their golden wedding and were most agreeably surprised by a number of their old friends from Nasonville, who came over and spent the day and evening with them.  Mr. and Mrs. Ebbe were made the recipients of many fine and appropriate gifts which will serve to keep the memory of the day fresh in their minds for many years.  Chris Ebbe and Mary Sorrenson were united in marriage in Denmark on March 1st, 1863.  During the years from 1859 to 1862, Mr. Ebbe served as one of the personal guard of the king of Denmark, Frederick VII, and it might be added that he was the smallest of the six guards, and as his stature is well known to all, it may be imagined that the guard was a pretty substantial one.  Mr. and Mrs. Ebbe came to this country shortly after their marriage and located on a farm in Jefferson county, where they stayed a little over two years.  They then came to Wood county and located in the heart of the forest on the west branch of O’Neill creek.  In 1881 Mr. Ebbe made a trip back to Denmark and when he returned he sold his Wood county farm to his brother, Louis Ebbe, and he and his good wife then located on a farm which was sold four years later to Cash Eide and which farm is now a part of the Eide farm near Granton.  Mr. and Mrs. Ebbe then entered the employ of the county, he as superintendent of the county poor farm, which position he held for 15 years.  They came to Neillsville in Nov., 1903, and soon after went to Oregon, where they made their home for a little over seven years and then returned to this city where they expect to continue their days in peace and happiness.  They are a most estimable and pleasant couple and their many friends hope that their days on this earth will be many and as happy and peaceful as those which have gone before.  Mr. and Mrs. Ebbe are the parents of four children, Mary Brooks of California, John Ebbe of Oregon, Geo. Ebbe of this city and an adopted son, Solon Davis, who lives near Granton.  An especially pleasing feature of the wedding day was the fine wedding cake which was send by Mrs. Brooks from California.
