Waterman, Frank & Mattie (50th Anniversary - 20 March 1928)


The golden wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Waterman of Abbotsford, was made the occasion of an enjoyable home-coming Tuesday, when their children arrived unexpectedly to help celebrate the event.

Frank Waterman, Nasonville and Miss Mattie Chamberlain of Plainfield who taught school in what was known as the Waterman district, were married March 20, 1878, at Nasonville, where they lived for a time. Later they took up their residence on a farm near Chili, where they continued to make their home for forty years. Nine children were born to them, two of whom, Rose and Ila Belle, have passed away. The remaining children are Mrs. Lottie Gibson of this village; Lemuel J. and Edward R. Waterman, Minneapolis; Clark R. Waterman, Mosinee; Jay N. Waterman, South Wayne; Wayne A. Waterman, Wauzeka.

Last summer Mr. and Mrs. Waterman arrived for a visit at the Gibson home and were so favorably impressed with this community that they purchased a home here in which they plan to spend their remaining days.

Those who attended the celebration included Mr. and Mrs. L. J. Waterman, Clark, Jay and Wayne Waterman and Mr. and Mrs. Tom Gibson and family.
