Frost, Mr./Mrs. Peter (Gold Anniv- 16 JUL 1930)

Mr. and Mrs. Peter Frost, residents of the Withee, Clark County, Wis. community since 1894, were honored guests on Wednesday evening of last week at a reception in the community hall at Withee, arranged by the Danish Congregation in celebration of their Golden Wedding Anniversary. Approximately 200 relatives and friends were present to extend congratulations and enjoy the program which had been prepared. Lunch was served later in the evening.

Earlier in the day a ceremonial service was held in the Danish Church, which Mr. and Mrs. Frost helped establish at Withee. At noon a family dinner was served, at which covers were laid for 26. Among those present were the five children of the honored couple, J. C. Frost of Portland, Ore.; The Rev. Arthur Frost, Askov, Minn.; Mrs. Edwin Hansen, Gaemay, Mont. and Alfred Frost and Mrs. Helvina Mailand, Withee., besides Mrs. J. C. Frost and son, Mrs. Arthur Frost, Edwin Hansen and the Alfred Frost family.

Other from out of town who attended the celebration were Mr. and Mrs. Chris Christensen, Mrs. Sina Petersen, and Mrs. Marie Rubart, all of Chicago; Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Jensen, Chris Jensen, and Mrs. Alma Kirkoff, Eau Claire, and Miss Esther Hansen, Stevens Point.

Mr. and Mrs. Frost were both born in Thirsted, Denmark, the former on March 7, 1852, and the other on Jan. 12, 1854. They came to America in 1879, and located at Cedar Falls, Iowa, where they were married in 1880. A year later they moved to Chicago, where they lived 13 years, after which they settled on a farm near Withee. They were among the first three Danish families to arrive in what is now practically a Danish Community.

Eleven years ago they retired from farming and purchased their present home in the village of Withee. Besides their five children, their descendants include eight grandchildren.
