Poppe, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest (45th Anniv - 13 Jun 1937)
Relatives gathered at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Dan Poppe on Sunday afternoon, June 13, 1937, where a luncheon was held complementary to the former’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Poppe of Longwood, Clark County. The occasion was their 45th wedding anniversary.
Mr. and Mrs. Poppe are pioneer residents of the Longwood community, having spent their entire wedded life on the farm site purchased by Mr. Poppe in 1890. The both speak of the "good old days" when the modern way of traveling was over "tote" roads with a team of oxen, mail was brought twice a week by stage coach and the country doctor made his calls on horse back.
When a young man Mr. Poppe was employed in the logging camps in the northern part of the state, and in the harvest fields of the Dakotas. He also spent several years on the Jos. Gibson farm training colts.
Guests included the children and grandchildren of the honored couple. Two children, Robert Poppe and Mrs. George Wells, were unable to attend. Numerous gifts were received and a pleasant time was had by all. The Gleaner joins with their many relatives and friends in extending best wishes for many more years of happy wedded life.
