Condit, Mr. & Mrs. T.D. (Gold Anniv - 30 OCT 1907)

On Wednesday, Oct. 30, 1907, Mr. and Mrs. T.D. Condit of this city (Neillsville, Clark County) had been wedded fifty years. The half-century mark of married life with its memories of joys and sorrows, toil and troubles, pleasures and pains, its plans accomplished in years of fruitful labor and its calmer evening of rest as age draws on, is indeed a fitting time and place to celebrate and reunite family and household ties. Gathered at their home that night were those who had come long miles and with friends and neighbors who gathered in, they made merry again in renewing acquaintances and offering best wishes and congratulations to the "bride and groom." Of course there was the wedding supper, and the bestowal of presents, both costly and useful, and hours of the night flew past on joyful wings.

T. D. Condit and Catherine Peterson were united in marriage Oct. 30, 1857 at Milwaukee, Wis., and lived at Rubicon, Dodge Co., Wis., until the fall of 1865, when they came to Clark County and settled on a farm four miles northwest of Neillsville, which was at that time solid woods. In the spring of 1884 they traded the farm for the home in this city where they have resided since that time. Mr. and Mrs. Condit are the parents of three children, two of whom are living: Mrs. Paul Stange of Diller, Neb., and Mrs. S. M. Warman of Mora, Minn.; and are the grandparents of five children, Ruth, Lois, Mabel, Byron and McClellan Warman.

Relatives from away who came to help celebrate this happy event were: Mrs. Hilda Spillman of Hartland, Wis., who is the only living sister of Mrs. Condit, Mr. E. L. Spillman, wife and two children from Fond du Lac, Wis., John Anderson and wife and Mrs. Geo. O’Brien from Spring Valley, Wis., Vet Cooke and wife and Mrs. John Hamilton from Olivet, Wis., Charley Condit and Clarence Condit and wife and little one from Elmwood, Wis., and Mrs. Paul Stange from Diller, Neb.
