Flagg, Mr./Mrs. Allison (Gold - 31 MAR 1935)

Mr. and Mrs. Allison Flagg, pioneer residents of the Town of Eaton (Clark Co., Wis.), where they have lived on their farm home for over thirty-one years, celebrated their golden wedding anniversary, Sunday, March 31, 1935, at the home of their son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Bostwick, who entertained the following old time neighbors and friends: Mrs. Frank Hatton and son Russell, Mr. and Mrs. J.H. Stafford and son Harry, Mr. and Mrs. Evan Hatton and daughter Betty, Mrs. Mary Bostwick, Mr. and Mrs. George Gemmeke and son Kenneth, Mr. and Mrs. Roger Dillenbeck and son Harold, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Susa Jr., Mr. and Mrs. Paul Susa, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Dimler, Mrs. Martha Meinholdt and daughters, Miss Nina Drescher, Mr. and Mrs. Stryker Flagg and daughters, Marion and Margie, Mr. and Mrs. Clark Hatton and sons and daughters Donald and Frank, Allison and Evelyn.

A bountiful dinner was served at high noon, the room and table were trimmed in white and yellow gold and a large bouquet of yellow zinnias and wedding cake that was sent to them by Mrs. Flagg's sister and family, Mr. and Mrs. Nick Nimm of Watertown, put the finishing touch to the occasion. The three granddaughters, Marion and Margie Flagg and Evelyn Hatton, and Miss Nina Drescher, served the guests.

They received many lovely gifts and a purse of money, a $5.00 gold piece from her sister and family, Mr. and Mrs. Nick Nimm of Watertown, a lovely linen tablecloth from Mrs. Martha Dillenbeck of Janesville, and a number of beautiful booklets with the appropriate Golden Wedding verses from relatives from away.

When the northern woods, in all their splendor, appealed to the Janesville people that came up here in 1902, 1903, 1904, and settled down in the southwest corner of the Town of Eaton. Some of the folks were Frank Hatton, Albert Dillenbeck, James, George and Allison Flagg, John H. Stafford, Wm. Rowert, W. Robbins, and H. Bicknell, a hardware dealer in Janesville, who still owns a large tract of land here. These folks all built their home in an unbroken timbered country with no roads or schools near at that time, and after all these years of hard work, with many misfortunes of tornadoes and crop failures, Mr. and Mrs. Allison Flagg are still working the home farm.

Mr. and Mrs. Flagg have a host of friends and neighbors who join the Gleaner in extending best wishes for many more years of health and happiness.
