Ewert, Mr./Mrs. Charles (50th Anniv. - 17 Apr. 1951)

A very pleasant gathering of relatives and friends met at the Charles Ewert home Sunday to help Mr. and Mrs. Ewert observe their 50th wedding anniversary which was observed Sunday instead of Tuesday, April 17th, the correct day, because some of their children would have been unable to attend then.

Mr. Ewert was born in Germany October 23, 1875 and came with his parents to the United States when he was 6 years old. He can still recall a few special happenings in his childhood in Germany and distinctly remembers his trip over in the boat.

Mrs. Ewert, formerly Emma Voth, was born September 9, 1882 on a farm in the Town of Unity. The Ewerts were married in the church at Romeo April 17, 1901 and for years lived on the farm where Mrs. Ewert was born. It was here that their five children were born.

They have two daughters, Mrs. Irene Lynn of Wausau, and Mrs. George Strohman of Marshfield, and three sons, Edwin of Wausau, Myron of Madison and Walter of Fond du Lac. They also have eight grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

In 1908 they moved from the Town of Unity to a farm which they purchased in the Town of Brighton. In 1942 they retired and moved to the village. Two years ago they built a new home on the east side where they now live.

Out of town friends and relatives who attended the celebration were Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Ewert and sons, Wausau; Mrs. Irene Lynn and Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Jaeger, Wausau; Mr. and Mrs. Myron Ewert and son, Madison; Mrs. George Strohman and daughter, Marshfield; and Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Ewert of Marshfield, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Greening, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Ringquist, Mr. and Mrs. Herman Krause and Mrs. Tillie Manthe, Spencer and Mr. and Mrs. Frank Meyer of Colby.

There were a large number from the village who attended and a dinner was served at 4 p.m. Mr. and Mrs. Ewert were presented with a purse of money and several gifts among which were a gold fish hook and spinner for Mr. Ewert, who spends much of his time fishing. Mrs. Ewert’s health keeps her confined to her home much of the time.

*** Note: In the original news article, the surname Voth was misspelled as Voight and the surname Manthe was misspelled as Monthe.
