Schultz, Mr./Mrs. George (50th - 4 Jul 1928)

On July 4, 1928, Mr. and Mrs. George Schultz of the town of Levis, Clark County, Wis., whose farm home is located at Dells Dam, celebrated their golden wedding, a great many relatives and friends gathering at the home that day in honor of the event.

Mr. and Mrs. Schultz have lived the full fifty years in Levis, the first five years of their married life being spent on the Goosbeck farm nearby, then moving to their present home, where they have lived constantly ever since. Mr. Schultz had charge of the old Dells Dam used for log-driving purposes, helping to build it and superintending the flooding operations as long as the logging lasted. He knew all the earliest settlers in the town and saw all the changes that came as the timber resources gave place to farming. His strength and skill as a river-man gave him great prestige among lumbermen of that day, and the cordial hospitality of himself and his wife made Dells Dam a favorite place along the river. Since the passing of the lumber days, Mr. and Mrs. Schultz have lived quietly on their farm; for some time past their son Guy and his wife helping in carrying on the place; they also assisted them in entertaining the guests of the day. A fine dinner was served at the noon hour and also in the evening.

Among the relatives and friends who were here for the anniversary were: Martin Schultz, a brother from San Diego, and his wife; a sister, Mrs. Gustav Guse, her husband and son Max of Mayville; a son-in-law, Frank Abend and his mother of Alma Center; Mr. and Mrs. Chris Kapfer, Mr. and Mrs. G. C. Huntley and daughter Marian, Mr. and Mrs. Tony Hantke, Mr. and Mrs. A. Bakken, Mrs. O. J. Blencoe and Mr. and Mrs. C. R. Sturdevant of Neillsville; Mrs. G. C. Youmans and daughter Rita of Brusnwick, Mo.; Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Kapfer of Levis; Mr. and Mrs. James Kapfer of Random Lake, Mrs. Mary Lee of Gays Mill; Clyde Horton and Miss Ella Schwantz, Hinsdale, Ill.; Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Horton and Mr. and Mrs. Victor Horton of Levis. There were also many who called for a few minutes during the afternoon to pay their respects to Mr. and Mrs. Schultz, and many others who could not call will join with the guests in wishing Mr. and Mrs. Schultz many more years of happy life.
