Marsh, W. J. (Birthday - 14 May 1951)

William J. Marsh of Neillsville was 90 years of age on Monday, May 14.  He was honored by a family party, which was shared by Bruce Van Gorden of Black River Falls.  Both birthdays fell on May 14, but Mr. Van Gorden is compared with Mr. Marsh; a mere child of 47.


The party was held on Sunday at the Herman North cottage, Lake Arbutus.  It was attended by about 30 relatives, chiefly Van Gordens, who are a considerable clan hereabouts.  The celebration had its origin in Florida when Mr. Marsh and the Norths with the Norths’ daughter, Pat Van Gorden, were at the Archie Van Gorden place.
