Wilcox, Bert & Hester (54th - 24 DEC 1939)

The 54th anniversary of their wedding was celebrated by Mr. and Mrs. Bert Wilcox of this city (Greenwood, Clark Co., Wis.) last Sunday, when they were guests of honor at the home of their son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Wilcox of Avoca. They made the trip to Avoca Saturday with another son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Waite Wilcox, Marshfield.

Born in McHenry County, Ill., on March 4, 1867, he married Miss Hesper Bigelow, also a native of McHenry County, at Woodstock on Dec. 24, 1885. Mrs. Wilcox was born on Oct. 28, 1866.
