Ketchpaw, Mr./Mrs. B.F. (Gold - 10 DEC 1927)

Mr. and Mrs. Archie Clayton of Lee entertained about twenty-five guests at a dinner party given in honor of her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Ketchpaw of Wisconsin, who have been visiting her for several months. The occasion was to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of their wedding. The lovely dining room and table were beautifully decorated in yellow with a large centerpiece of golden daisies and ferns, and the table was fairly laden with good things to eat. Between courses Mr. and Mrs. Ketchpaw entertained the guests with the history of their courtship, marriage and after life, enterprised with Mr. Ketchpaw's jokes, thus making their entertainment very jolly and interesting. Toasts from the different guests to the health and continued happiness of the seventy-year old bride and groom completed a very enjoyable dinner. The evening was spent in lively games, in all of which the elderly couple took a lively part. Many beautiful gifts of gold or gold trimmed were presented by relatives and friends. Those present were Mr. and Mrs. Ketchpaw, Mrs. Archie Clayton and sister, Mrs. Manhard of Idaho, Mr. and Mrs. Zunino, Mr. and Mrs. William Bellinger, Mr. and Mrs. Al Griswold, Mr. and Mrs. H. Bolton, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Drown, Mr. and Mrs. Wood, Mrs. Clark Drown, Estella and Eda Zunino, Miss Minnie Bradshaw, Charles Zunino, and Messrs. Johnson and Olersen.

The above was taken from the Elko, Nev. Free Press and is a write-up of the Golden Wedding celebration of Mr. and Mrs. B.F. Ketchpaw of this city. Mr. and Mrs. Ketchpaw were united in marriage at Elkhorn, Wis., Dec. 10, 1877, and moved to Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), Dec. 4, 1897, having resided here for the past 30 years.

Their many local friends join the Gleaner in extending best wishes and hope that Mr. and Mrs. Ketchpaw will keep well and live to celebrate many more wedding anniversaries.
