Truax, Mr./Mrs. Alonza (18 JAN 1922)
Mr. and Mrs. Alonza Truax celebrated their golden wedding on Wednesday afternoon Jan. 18th, 1922, in the presence of about 50 relatives and friends.
At 1 o'clock Rev. J. H. Chatterson performed the marriage ceremony, the couple being attended by their son Earl and Mrs. Carrie Bennett, sister of Mrs. Truax, and standing under a large white bell. After the impressive ceremony they received the congratulations of their guests.
The house was prettily decorated for the event in yellow and white, and bouquets of carnations.
A bountiful wedding supper was served to the guests which all did justice to.
Many nice gifts and a sum of money was received by the worthy couple, as a reminder of the event which will long be remembered.
Mr. Truax is 74 years old and Mrs. Truax who is 65, are both enjoying good health. They were married at Williamstown, New York, Jan. 18th, 1872, coming to Spencer in 1874. Five years later they moved into Clark County, Wis., living on two different farms, which they owned until last fall, when they came to this village. They have three sons, Earl, Nelson and Clifford, and one daughter, Mrs. Louie Miller of Abbotsford. The relatives from away who were in attendance were Mrs. Jennie Sankee of Minn., and Mrs. Carrie Bennett of Oregon.
It is the wish of the many friends that Mr. and Mrs. Truax live to enjoy many more anniversaries.
