Chesterman, Mr./Mrs. J. W. (Gold Anniv - 7 DEC 1915)

Tuesday Dec. 7, 1915, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Chesterman celebrated their golden wedding.

Fifty years ago Tuesday, Mr. John W. Chesterman and Miss Francis E. Morley were united in marriage at New Troy, Mich. After their marriage they resided at New Troy until 1882, when they came to Loyal, Clark County, Wis., where they lived until 1889, when they moved on their farm in the town of Beaver. Last spring they again moved to this village, where they now reside. Two children were born to them, Henry of Valdez, Alaska, and Mrs. Alice Philpott of Loyal.

For over 30 years Mr. and Mrs. Chesterman have aided in the development of Clark County and its resources, coming here when lumbering was our chief industry, watching the passing of the forests and the development of the dairy industry. Among the friends who gathered to help them celebrate this event were many who shared with them the joys and sorrows of early pioneer life.

The celebration was at the home of their daughter, Mrs. J. M. Philpott, which was especially decorated with chrysanthemums and yellow roses for this event. Over thirty friends sat down to a bountiful wedding dinner, after which the aged couple was present with a large easy rocker, a slight remembrance of the esteem in which they are held by their many friends in this community.
