Christie, Mr. and Mrs. Freeman (Golden - 11 December 1957) 

Their golden wedding anniversary was celebrated Saturday by Mr. and Mrs. Freeman Christie, of 1800 Black River Road, when 150 relatives, neighbors and friends gathered at the American Legion Hall. Open house was held there from 2 to 4 p.m. and in the evening an anniversary dinner was served to relatives.   

Mr. Christie, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Christie and Miss Elizabeth McConnell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George McConnell, were united in marriage December 11, 1907, in the Presbyterian parsonage at Greenwood, with the late Rev. W. T. Hendren, officiating. The newlyweds lived on a farm in Eaton Township, south of Greenwood, and remained there for 33 years, residing on several different farms. 

To this union six children were born: Ernest, now of La Crosse; Eugene of Neillsville; Arthur of Greenwood; May (now Mrs. Tony Schullo) of Minneapolis; Arlene (now Mrs. Harold Lobner) of Milladore; and John of Wayzata, Minn.
