Granton News: By Mrs. F. E. Winn -
and Mrs. Myron Osgood quietly observed their 50th
wedding anniversary at their home Friday, February 20. But
Saturday evening a number of relatives and close friends gathered
at the Community Hall and gave them a surprise celebration.
Mr. and Mrs. Osgood were united in marriage at the home of her
parents, Mr. and Mrs. S. R. Davis, by the Rev. Campbell, pastor of
the Neillsville Methodist Church.
young couple lived in the village where Myron did carpenter work
and assisted his uncle in a planing mill for some time. But both
were interested in farming and after managing her father’s
farm for a few years, they purchased a farm of their own and lived
there for several years. They disposed of this farm and
returned to her father’s farm which they later
purchased. Here Mr. Osgood built up a fine herd of purebred
and grade Holsteins and erected one of the first modern dairy barns
in this section.
Several years later they disposed of this farm
and Mr. and Mrs. Osgood spent several years at the Racine County
Farm, where he was herdsman and Mrs. Osgood had charge of the
kitchen. Since returning here some time ago, Mrs. Osgood has been
librarian at the Samson Memorial Library and is now vice president
of the Woman’s Club.
Guests from away at the party Saturday night were their only child and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Billman, East Troy, and Mr. and Mrs. Earl Marsh, Milwaukee.
