Joseph Frank Kadonsky of Abbotsford and his twin sister, Mrs. Anna Bucholz, were 90 years old Saturday, Nov. 4, 1967.
The occasion was celebrated at the Wood County Infirmary at Port Edwards, where Mrs. Bucholz is a resident.
Members of their respective families were together there from one to three p.m. There were special birthday cakes, gifts of fruit and a hand lettered greeting card with a picture of the twins when they were 75 years old.
The twins were born in Milwaukee Nov. 4, 1877, and when they were about two years old came with their parents to the town of Holton (Marathon Co., Wis.). The Kadansky's cleared a farm out of a tract of land in Marathon County, which is now owned by George Kadonsky.
There were four other children in the family: John, Kate, Christine and Frank, now deceased.
J.F. Kadonsky, familiarly known as Frank, attended the University of Wisconsin, and received his bachelor of science degree in 1907 and bachelor of arts degree in 1908. After completing his studies there he became principal of the Marathon County Agricultural School at Wausau, from where he went to Ironwood, Mich., where he was a Gogeble County Agent. The family moved to Abbotsford in 1924 and Mr. Kadonsky has resided there continuously since that time. The past several winters he has gone to Mesa, Ariz. Mrs. Kadonsky died in 1938.

Mr. Kadonsky has four children: Mrs. Anthony (Irene) Sara, and John of Milwaukee, Raymond of Stevens Point, and Francis of Kenosha. There are 11 grandchildren.
