Knoop, Mr./ Mrs. Ferdinand (50th Wedding Anniv. - 30 June 1926)

Mr and Mrs. Ferdinand Knoop of the town of Pine Valley celebrated their golden wedding on Wednesday, June 30, about 60 relatives and neighbors gathered to join with them in celebrating the event.

Mr and Mrs. Knoop were both born in Germany and came to this county with their parents when quite young. The families settled in Washington County near West Bend. They were married in 1876, and settled on wild land in Pine Valley. Out of this wilderness they developed a fine farm, and built and maintained a good home for their family. To them were born eight children, three of whom died in infancy. Those living are Clara living in Neillsville; Emma and Louis in Chili; Elsie, Mrs. Wm. Duge, in the town of Grant, and Frank on the home farm.

The many friends of this worthy couple hope that they have yet before them, many years of happy life.
