Mr. and Mrs. H.H. Hartson of this city (Greenwood, Clark County) celebrated their Golden Wedding anniversary, on Saturday, May 15th, 1937, at their home here.

Henry Hobart Hartson was born in Adams Co., Wis., of Yankee parentage on July 24, 1856. Mrs. Hartson, nee Hilda Wellen, was born in Oslo, Norway, on April 18, 1857 and came to Whitehall when she was five years old.

Mr. and Mrs. Hartson came to Clark County immediately after their marriage, which took place at Whitehall, Wis., May 15, 1887. Mr. Hartson had resided in the country since 1872 and operated a stage line, carrying mail and passengers between Neillsville and Withee from 1886 to 1888.

Six children were born to this union, three sons and three daughters: Wellen of Neillsville; Harry, in the west, Fred at Longmont, Colo.; Mrs. L.E. Brackett of Brule, Wis.; Mrs. G.A. Jardine of New Virginia, Iowa, and Miss Marian Hartson, R.N. of DeMoines, Iowa. There are also 19 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.

Mr. Hartson was engaged in the hardware business and was publisher of the Gleaner from 1892 to 1916 and served as postmaster from 1900 to 1916.

It was during his term as president of the school board, a position he held for 20 years, that the present school building was erected. He was also City Treasurer from 1924 to 1931.

Mrs. Hartson has been an active member of the Order of Eastern Star since 1904 and served as Worthy Matron for five years. She has also been prominent in the Presbyterian and Methodist Church.
