Hagedorn, Mr. and Mrs. Paul (Golden - 22 March 1955) 

Mr. and Mrs. Paul Hagedorn, pioneer residents of the Neillsville area, observed their golden wedding anniversary on Tuesday, March 22, at the farm home of their son, Louis Hagedorn and family. 

Places for approximately 75 guests were set at the tables decorated with bouquets of roses.  The honored couple’s table was centered with a wedding cake made in the form of a cross.  This cake was baked by two of their daughters, Mrs. Louis Nemitz and Mrs. Harvey Krause, and was decorated by Mrs. Herman Hagedorn. 

March 22 was also the 73rd birthday anniversary of Mr. Hagedorn, who was born in Germany, coming to America at the age of one and one-half years. 

Some of the highlights of the afternoon and evening were a brief service by the Rev. Adolph Schumann of Globe, singing of songs by the couple’s grandchildren and a mock wedding. 

Before retiring about 10 years ago to the city, Mr. and Mrs. Hagedorn resided on the farm now operated by their son Louis and family.  

Mrs. Melvin Marg baked and decorated Mr. Hagedorn’s birthday cake. 

Mr. and Mrs. Hagedorn are the parents of the following children: Mrs. Edward (Lilly) Marg, Neillsville; Herman, Neillsville; Julius, Route 3, Neillsville; Mrs. Harvey (Evelyn) Krause, Neillsville; Mrs. Louis (Helen) Nemitz, Neillsville; and Louis of Route 3, Neillsville. One daughter, Mrs. Richard (Erna) Schlueter, is deceased. 

Included in their grandchildren are the four sets of twins, children of Mr. and Mrs. Louis Hagedorn, and a set of twins, sons of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Marg. 

Among the many gifts received by Mr. and Mrs. Hagedorn was a "money tree."
