Mandel, Mr./Mrs. Ernst (50th Anniv. - 24 June 1949)

Mr. and Mrs. Ernst Mandel will celebrate their golden wedding anniversary Friday, June 24th. Open house will be held on that day at the First Evangelical and Reformed church hall from 7:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. for relatives and friends.

Mr. Mandel was born in Mishicott, Manitowoc county, Wisconsin, on Feb. 2, 1872, and came to the town of Green Grove when 22 years of age. He bought a 120 acre tract of land, 20 acres of which were cleared, which he farmed, in connection with doing carpenter work. Mrs. Mandel was born in Cleveland, Manitowoc county, and came to the town of Green Grove with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Kademan, when two years of age. They were married on June 24th, 1899, and lived on the Mandel farm until 1907, when, because of his health, Mr. Mandel discontinued farming and carpentering and went into the cheese making business and operated a cheese factory in the town of Colby for 30 years. They retired from active work in 1926 and moved to the city of Colby, Wis.

While in the cheese business, Mr. Mandel won three first prizes on Colby cheese at the state cheese makers’ convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He also invented the Mandel agitator which he patented and later sold to Damrod Bros. of Fond du Lac. This agitator was a great help in making cheese.

Mr. and Mrs. Mandel have three children - Albert, on the home cheese factory, Mrs. Albert (Edna) Dins of Colby and Harry Mandel of Unity. There are six grand children.
