Of the many golden wedding anniversaries celebrated in this vicinity within the past few years, it would be difficult to say which was the happiest one was. But the fiftieth anniversary of the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Campbell, which was observed Friday, Washington’s Birthday, ranks near the top.

Mr. and Mrs. Campbell held open house during the afternoon and more than sixty of their friends called to wish them many happy returns of the day. Dainty refreshments were served. The wedding cake was made by their granddaughter, Miss Ruth Rosolack. Among the relatives present at the celebration, besides their two daughters, Mrs. S. R. Newton and Mrs. W. M. Rosolack, and their families residing here were: Mr. and Mrs. Guy Campbell and son, Fargo, N. D.; C. M. Campbell and E. G. Campbell, Neillsville; Hillard Russell and family, Blair; Archie Nelson and wife, Curren Valley.

William E. Campbell and Miss Carrie E. DeLong were united in marriage by Rev. Wm. Galloway, Methodist minister then located at Fairchild, on Feb. 22, 1885, at the home of the bride’s parents, at their place on the farm now owned by Max Schenk. Mr. Campbell was a cheese maker and for two and a half years he operated the first cheese factory in this section, in the house now owned by the heirs of Mrs. Addie Russell. Mr. and Mrs. Campbell then moved to Dodge County and later to Sheboygan County, which was the old home of the DeLong family.

Returning here forty-four years ago, Mr. Campbell purchased a farm, and twenty-five years ago moved into the village. Although not in the most rugged health, both Mr. and Mrs. Campbell were able to enjoy this most notable event in their lives. A host of friends throughout this community join in wishing them many more happy anniversaries of their wedding day.
