Raine, Mr./Mrs. John (50th Anniv. 27 Jan. 1931)

Plans had been made for the celebration of the Golden wedding of Mr. and Mrs. John Raine on Jan. 27; but owing to the serious illness of Mr. Raine it was found necessary to give up plans for a formal celebration, though immediate members of the family with the exception of one son Clyde and wife and one granddaughter Lela, gathered at the home where Rev. Vornholt and Rev. White conducted a short service consisting of prayer and a few well chosen words of greetings and congratulations.

John Raine and Hannah Evans were married at Hazel Green, Jan. 27, 1881. The first ten years of their married life he spent working in and around the lead mines near Benton. The next thirteen years were spent on farm near Cuba City. Twenty-seven years ago they came to Neillsville and bought what was known as the Geo. Austin farm two miles east of Neillsville. They lived there until 1912 when they moved to the Lindsey farm just west of the fairgrounds, living there until 1918 when they moved to their present home in Neillsville.

Mr and Mrs. Raine have won a host of friends by their kindness to everyone and the uprightness in all business dealings, so that the community as a whole is join in congratulations and best wishes for their continued happiness.

Mrs. A. Lindsay, a sister of Mr. Raine, a niece, Bernice Webster, and a nephew, Orville Webster, of Cuba City, were also present.
