Counsell, Mr./Mrs. Henry (Silver - 29 Oct. 1883)
The silver wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Counsell was celebrated on Monday afternoon and evening, Oct. 29th, 1883, at their residence in the town of Grant, three and one half miles east of Neillsville, Wis. Their long residence in the county and their well established reputation for generous hospitality brought together a large company of friends and neighbors. Among the relatives from a distance were noticed Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Counsell, of Oconomowoc, Wis., and Mr. and Mrs. H. M. Frame, of Waukesha, and Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Ringrose, of Garden Valley, Wis. the beautiful home of Mr. and Mrs. Counsell was crowded by old and young, who seemed to realized that such occasion were of rare occurrence. Supper was served at an early hour. The tables were loaded with good things, and words fail to do justice to so grand an occasion. Those who were present know all about it; and we do not feel like harrowing up the feelings of those who failed to be there.
After supper there was appropriate music, and a recitation by Wm. Campbell which was very appropriate to the occasion. Next followed a presentation to Mr. and Mrs. Counsell of many pieces of most beautiful silver ware. This presentation in behalf of the company was made by Wm. Campbell, of Neillsville, in a speech most appropriate. The company dispersed at an early hour leaving behind them many thanks for the privilege of participating in this delightful event, and many good wished for the joy, happiness, and prosperity of all the members of that happy family.
