Roder, Mr. & Mrs. Carl (Gold Anniv - 25 OCT 1904)

Oct. 25th was the fiftieth anniversary of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Roder of the town of Grant, Clark County, and the occasion was celebrated by a golden wedding, at which were gathered their sons and daughters with their respective families, and a few of their intimate neighbors and friends. Mr. and Mrs. Roder were married in Germany. They came to America 38 years ago and settled in Sheboygan Co., where they remained four years. They then moved to Clark County, settling on their farm in the town of Grant, where they have resided ever since. Mr. and Mrs. Roder have living five children, two sons, August and Paul, and three daughters, Mrs. Carl Krause, Mrs. Ernest Nitschke and Mrs. Henry Sterns Of Duluth, all of whom, except Mrs. Sterns, reside in the town of Grant. The children with their respective families, including ten grandchildren, were present. The house was decorated in yellow, tinsel festoons and chrysanthemums in abundance. The "bride" wore a garland sent to her by her bridesmaid of fifty years ago, a Mrs. Fischer now residing in Milwaukee, and the "groom" wore a buttonhole bouquet from the same source. Many appropriate presents were bestowed and the guests, about 40 in number, sat down to a bountiful supper. Mr. Roder, who is 72 years of age, has no living relatives, being left an orphan at ten years of age and adopted and educated by a Lutheran Minister. He is hale and hearty, active in mind and body, a man of the most temperate habits and highest moral character. Mrs. Roder, though for some time in feeble health, has outlived all of a family of ten brothers and sisters. This family reunion was a most joyous one and their many friends hope that many happy years May yet be spared to the father and mother.
