Creviston, Mr./Mrs. Frank (64th - 1938)

Frank Creviston and Miss Sarah Gaylord made their nuptial vows at Springville, near Viroqua, and on July 5, 1938, will celebrate the sixth fourth anniversary of that happy event. The first years of this long wedded life were spent at Springville, and they also lived at Mather for a while. But their home has been in this vicinity for fifty five years. They located at Nettleton’s Corners when that hamlet expected to be the city and have the railroad, but the railroad came up the other valley and the Creviston family took to farming, which was their home and occupation until about five years ago, when the farm was rented and these good folks retired.

Mr. Creviston was born a Hoosier, March 2, 1853, but has lived in Wisconsin so long that he has no thoughts of returning to Indiana. Mrs. Creviston is a native of Wisconsin, born in Mineral Point Nov. 16, 1856. They have three sons, Roy A., of Eau Claire, Charles H., in California, and James F., of Fairchild. There are eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Mr. Creviston has three sisters living; there were six in the family. And Mrs. Creviston has two sisters and seven brothers. There were eleven children in the family, and her father, who was well known here, passed the century mark by several years before laying down the working tools of life.
