Schumacher, Mr./Mrs. Peter (40th Anniv. - 22 Nov. 1956)


The Lawrence Weber home in the town of Colby was the scene of a family gathering on Thanksgiving Day in honor of Mrs. Weber’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Schumacher of Dorchester, Wisconsin, who marked their 40th wedding anniversary.

Joining with them in the observance were their six children and their families - Melvin and Robert Schumacher and Mrs. Bryce (Marlene) Hinke of Dorchester, Mrs. Lawrence (Verna) Weber of Colby, Mrs. Leo (Agnes) Zirngibl of Medford and Mrs. Gordon (Celia) Johnson of Pennsylvania.


Their marriage was performed in St. Louis Catholic church at Dorchester on November 22, 1916. Following their marriage, the Schumachers lived for two years in the town of Mayville where Mr. Schumacher operated a cheese factory. In 1918, they moved onto a farm in the town of Little Black, near Dorchester, where they have since resided.
