Winters, Mr./Mrs. J.M. (50th – 14 Apr 1916)

On Friday Mr. and Mrs. J.M. Winters celebrated the 50th wedding anniversary of their marriage at their home in Washburn and about 80 guests assembled at their home in the afternoon and assisted in making the day a memorable one to both Mr. and Mrs. Winters and to those who were there. Mr. and Mrs. Winters were united in marriage at Farmington in Waupaca County and they came to Clark County 48 years ago last November and settled on a homestead in town Washburn. Three years later they bought a farm on the Cunningham, which has remained their home ever since. Mr. Winters is a Civil War veteran and one of the most pleasing features of the celebration Friday was the singing of National songs and familiar airs which were dear to the hearts of the couple. Mr. and Mrs. Winters have been prominent figures in church, social and public life in town of Washburn for many years and during that time they have established themselves in a position which has commanded the love, esteem and respect of everybody and all their friends joined Friday in making their golden wedding day one of extreme enjoyment to all.
